Mom's Birthday

It was a significant birthday for my mom this weekend and we decided she was worthy of a party! Of course, this family would throw a party if you changed your shampoo, but we made this a "surprise" party which is one step beyond regular party. The girls and my sister started the decorating....

while my brother's girlfriend and I went to the grocery store. After talking to a few people, she asked me if I knew everyone in there. Well, it is kind of a small town.

My mom's friend brought her back from lunch to the tune of "suprise!". There was lots of laughter, food, drinks and pictures. Here is a very cute one of my parents....

And one of the whole fam.....

Nice palm tree, right? I guess my brother, the man in charge of decorations, wished we were partying in the bahamas!

Finally, my sister let me take a picture of her belly. She's half way there and looking cuter than ever!


I love this picture of she and her hubby. She/They look so happy :)

Happy Birthday, Mom! May you have many, many, MANY more!
Love you :)

Sounds like a fun time!

My word verification is fibwriti! That sounds like a Harry Potter curse to make someone answer all of the test answers wrong!

Happy happy birthday to a very special mom! Great celebration & photos! For those of us that don't have our mom's with us anymore, I think there's big marketing potential to rent her out for special occasions...maybe that could be an upcoming WOFF event!

Thanks to my wonderful children and husband, I had a fantastic birthday party. People came from 8 to 88 years. Lots of laughs and great hamburgers. What would I do without such a great family and friends?

C. - I think "girlfriend" is better than "tenant". Am loving your post. Come for Sunday dinner.
The rest of you can come for "Sunday Dinner", the more the merrier. Nana
