This was a celebration of my Mom's 75th birthday or at least that's the way is started out. I asked my sister to get some cupcakes for the baby girl since her Monday night graduation that got us home at 11 something o'clock didn't lend itself to a dinner OR dessert. Now it was a graduation/birthday party. Friday night after our arrival at the cabins we had Graduation cupcakes. Cake #1
Saturday was the big 75th birthday party and my family (which is large and loud) was inside and outside and overall having just a really amazing time. This is not the entire group, but we rounded up a fair number of kids, grandkids and great-grandkids for a photo with Granny & Papa.
My Mom's really cute birthday cake was eventually cut in half and my sister took half home, I have no idea what happened to the other half. SuperDave never even saw it - we were on sugar overload and ate salad Saturday night. Cake #2
We had our fill of sugar because my sisters decided this was MY birthday celebration also. My BIG 5-0 is still two months away, but my sisters either wanted me to get older faster or figured getting everyone together in two months was a long shot.
I'm not much of a cake eater so my "cake" was a double decker chocolate chip cookie with frosting in the middle and frosting on the top! Cake #3....they not only want me to be older but also FATTER. While making a quick stop at my cabin I hear the strains of Happy Birthday to You and think I've missed singing to my Mom when the door opens and in come the kids with a LARGE number of Black Balloons.
On my 40th birthday my siblings ordered 40 black balloons. The florist didn't have 40 black balloons so they delivered a multicolored balloon bouquet. I thought they were being nice to me but later found out it was a mistake! Why would I think they would be nice when I had a milestone birthday. They've been waiting 9 years and 10 months to try again, I guess they couldn't wait any longer.
Sisters! What would you do without 'em?
My brother did his part to make it a special day too, but that does not include being in this picture.
SuperDave and I took today off to
All in all a pretty good Monday!
Much Love & Laughter,
