seemah's birthday-part 4

More presents......! Next, Seemah opened Annie Guilbert's present, which was really wonderful....... This---you need to see closer.....! We all could relate to that! LOL!.....Annie was in rare form that day....And she kept us in stitches..... For those who may not remember...Annie was the neighbor Millie on the Dick Van Dyke show, and much later was 'Yetta' on "The Nanny"...and also, she was in two plays of mine and won an Award for one of them.....

Next....Lee gave Seemah two gifts.....both related to each other....Here is the first one, below...... It is a Beautiful Tea Bag Holder, with a very sweet message.....Look a little really is very very sweet and very very useful, too......I wouldn't mind having one of those, myself! Then Seemah opened the Big package---the one at the top of the post---And this was the second half of Lee's present..... A really pretty Tea Pot! We did laugh a lot at Seemah opening this package....she painstakingly undid every piece of tape---and there were lots and lots of pieces of tape----this was a difficult package to wrap and so, a very difficult package to open, if you are trying not to tear the it was opened.....To see the joy Seemah projects is really so very heartwarming.....And it sure is a pretty and cheerful Tea Pot....... After all the wonderful 'present' opening, we then opened our Gift Bags.....And that was a lot of fun....Again, Annie kept us laughing with her playfulness...... Pretending to be 'hoarding' her loot from the gift love how she pretty much had everything that had been in the bag in her two hands! Annie was showing us how this Heart shaped Key Chain could light up when you pressed the center..... And then she decided to show us this phenomenon in a more careful way....It was pretty hilarious because there was a running dialogue in a funny voice the whole time she was doing all of this....I dearly wish I had turned on my Video.....but, I didn't.The last thing she did with this little Heart-Light Key Chain was what you see above....Using it like it was a! Nobody enjoyed it more than The Birthday Girl.....As did all of us, I might add..... We were all unpacking our little bags and I was busy taking pictures of all this....Betty was next to me so I could get a couple of great pictures of the contents of our 'gift bags'......As you can see, among other things, there were some pretty neon colored pencils.... I asked Betty to hold one up so I could get a good picture of it.....It is pretty, isn't it? And personalized, of course....! There were some personalized M&M's, too....though you cannot tell from this picture...and a puzzle or two; a two rolls of some very cute stickers for whatever... and a pad for writing plus Post It notes in the shape of an Apple.....Silly? Sure! But not any sillier than there was no liquor served at this Lunch....! We all just get 'high' on being together and the fun of sharing so much of our lives with each other.....Here below a closer look at the Birthday Pencil...... This normally would have been the end of our Celebration for the day. But there was one more thing that we did and it is something I had not done before---You will see why, I promise. I will save it for the next post, which will be called, "Seemah's Birthday-The Coda".....but that won't be for a few days.....Till then......

More To Come.......

Note: Many people have asked where those Fun File Folders came from...Bridget told us they come from Urban Outfitters.....!

Also: I will be quite busy with Emmy voting for this next few days or more....So, if I don't get around to visiting you all, I hope you will forgive me.....I have prepared a few posts in advance, so I will keep up on my blog, but I just may not be able to get around to yours......

You all have so much fun at your parties, Naomi. You all truly have a zest for life - and that is why you act and appear so young!!

There's nothing quite as much fun as being "silly" like Annie and Lee! There's no such other feeling than there is when you make someone laugh...:o)

Hi Naomi, thanks again for sharing. I luv, the sweat shirt. Have fun with the task at hand voting. Am going to a garlic fest this weekend in Binghamton NY. Weather man says it will be nice. Hopefully a great turnout. My husband needs to replace his 1994 pickup, so hopefully we will have a banner day. He grows really good garlic, not to mention tomatoes. Am off friday, so can help him get ready, his help quit this week, so now he is in emergency mode.
Thank you again for sharing the photo's of your friends, I really like the one of (Millie) that is her name to me:)Hording her goodie bag. :)

So much thought goes into the presents. That lilac wrapping paper is so pretty. I hope it can be used again. Loved the tea- bag thingy and was that a pair of tongs on the side? So useful and much better than a spoon.

Now that you told us who Annie played, I can "see" her as Millie, but not as easily as Grandma Yetta; as a kid, I always watched the DVD show; and as an adult, I always watched the Nanny.
Annie must've had loads of fun working with the casts of each of those wonderful shows.
Liquor is truly never needed at a party; the laughter and joy come naturally from within. So glad you ladies have one another in your lives.

You surely cannot beat a gathering of good friends and you prove this to us. Your girlfriends seem to be all wonderful people and I so love these 'birthday posts' and I gether all your regular readers are the same as I. You have a talent in making us believe we are right there with you and your friends. Thank you.

Wow, you girls really pushed the boat out this time, didn't you....?

Annie just cracks me up, she's such a funny lady - much like all of you mad women :-)

Can't wait to see the Coda.
My hobby ate into valuable blogging time over the last few weeks... but I'll be back.

The t-shirt is hilarious! I enjoy the birthday pics and all the beautiful presents, especially the tea bag holder and teapot. It makes me want to switch from coffee to Earl Grey.

You look like such a fun bunch! I love it when you go all out and celebrate like this! It's so much fun!!

Naomi - thought I'd leave a comment here (again) to say that my post was about an impending move and we are lucky we are married because of where we are moving to! I think Deana got a little confused...

What a wonderful party!! I love the T-shirt!! I can sure relate to that one..Haha!! I wish you had videoed Annie too!!

I can't get over how young Seemah looks. She sure doesn't look no where close to her age! Amazing!

Have fun Emmy viewing and voting! Hope Sweetie is doing well. He will help you watch I'm sure! Hugs to you Naomi! I really appreciated your phone call. It perked me up!!!

Just discovered your blog today.
I loved the birthday party pictures, I could feel all the positive energy and love.

I LOVED Millie on DVD. So glad to be able to catch up with her in her real life.

Thank you!!

Have fun with the Emmy voting Aunty Em :)

Loved the shirt that is hilarious. It always cracks me up seeing Annie, we used to call my friend Susan's mother Yetta because she was so much like the character on the Nanny, who knew I would have a real life six degrees of seperation later on lol.
BTW I emailed you some very exciting news hope you got it,

I want my own name engraved pencils!

Great photos........such joy. I love it! And I have got to tell you that my husband has always had a soft spot for Jerry and Millie Helper! I kept looking at your photos over the past week from Seemah's birthday wondering why your friend Annie looked so familiar. As soon as I read that she played Millie.......I thought, "of course!"

Can wait to learn more about your insights and thoughts on the Emmys this year Naomi.
