On Saturday my mom, (Marian) turned 85. - The family was over that evening for a little get together. My mom doesn't like her picture taken very much so I don't have to many shots of her celebration but I will share a couple of the ones I did get.
I really like this one of her and Coleen together. Coleen painted the picture for her Great-Grandma.
Next up a picture of my brother (Rich) lighting the candles on her cake. Please take note of the cake because the next photo you see of the cake it will look quite a bit different.
Next up, Coleen's birthday on Sunday.
The birthday celebration continued on Monday with her "kids" birthday party. She invited 9 kids to her party. Can you image the noise level of ten 9 year olds....I tried to stay in my craft room as much as possible except when taking pictures.
They did play outside a little: Here they are playing ,Red-Rover
They played with balloons, ate pizza, had a "burping" contest (really?), played Truth or Dare, and just in general had a very fun time.
Party lasted 4 hours....Grandma is still recovering!!!
