Gran's Birthday Party

It was so much fun to have my family here over the long weekend. It's always kind of wild and hectic when we all get together, but we have a ball.

Mom's birthday was Sunday, and I think she enjoyed being here with everyone. We had a cook-out with lots of food. My sister Sandi was here, and brought a birthday cake that she baked for Mom.

Mom enjoyed her presents, her cake and ice cream and her grands and great-grands

And she enjoyed a beer. Here's my 84 year old mother having a Coors Light on her birthday.

She thought it was hilarious that I was taking her picture with her beer. :o) Isn't she just the cutest little Gran ever?

Happy Birthday, Mama!

Happy Birthday to your mom and good for her to be able to still have a beer once in a while :) Nothing wrong with enjoying life :) She looks like such a nice person.

Loved all the pics of the kids. You have such beautiful grandchildren. You really are blessed :)

Thinking of you this weekend and today, hoping you are feeling ok.

Prayers going up for you as always :)

Hi Jennifer, I'll pass along the birthday wishes to Mom. She is a sweetheart. She rarely drinks anything alcoholic, but decided she wanted a beer that day. I thought it was cute. :o)

Thank you for your comment about our grands. Yes, we are truly blessed. They are beautiful inside and out.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for me over the weekend. I had a wonderful three days. I was tired Saturday night after the cook-out, but after a good night's sleep and resting the next day, I felt fine.

I hope all is well with you! Hugs!
