Happy Birthday to Grandma

The party for my grandma was wonderful. About 200 people came by to wish her a happy 90th birthday. The food was delicious. Lots of people wrote sweet letters and memories to be displayed for the event. The flowers and decorations were pretty. She looked beautiful, as always. It was nice to visit with family and friends we had not seen in a while.

For grandma's cake, Molly and Anita painted 90 little terra cotta pots and put little candles in them. Then the cake stands were large painted terra cotta pots. After we sang to her, everyone helped her blow out her candles.

Here is my family and my sister's family with Grandma. Behind us is a long table filled with photographs, memories, poems, and lots of other memorabilia to celebrate Grandma's life. The baby order is their birth order, ALEM.
This photo is of Mazie, Lucia, and Elliott with their cousin JaMari. He is only two months old and he weighs almost as much as Lucia. They had a good time hanging out together. This is our first time meeting him. He is very easy going and sweet.
