The Big 5-0 Continues....

Yum


The staff at my school know how to have a good time and my birthday was the perfect excuse to celebrate!


A bulletin board in the office annouces to all who enter that something is going on... and then all 600 students sing Happy Birthday to me in our Morning Assembly. It was TOO COOL.



The cake was awesome! The icing was pure black... it turned your teeth, tongue and lips black, too! It was great fun!


And, why not trash the principal's office while we're at it??? Balloons were in places that balloons shouldn't be. Can you see my sash hanging on the wall? I wore a sash all day that announced to the world that I was 50 today!



Although not planned, a special bonus was seeing my former assistant principal Jeff! He stopped by to see us on his way home from Columbia. He looks like he planned it, doesn't he, wearing black like the rest of the office and staff did today!

I couldn't have had more fun! The office staff made lunch for me and all came down to eat together and socialize a bit. It was nice to sit together and chat!

    The ham ball on my blog is actually a ham cheese ball that you serve with crackers-you should definitely try it!

  10. You do look so happy! I can remember working the day I turned 50, for a joke the Sheriff moved my patrol car and I had to call a Highway Patrolman to make out a stolen car report and meanwhile every officer in the county was in on it...I was not a happy girl. Didn't they know I was having a traumatic day already? I was turning 50 for crying out loud! Of course the Sheriff told me they did it to show me there are worse things than turning 50. This coming from a 54 year old man...lol...turns out he was right! 50 was a wonderful year!
    hugs to you, because 50 is beautiful!
