Birthday weekend

My great Aunt Maudies 87th birthday celebration...
she had a house full of people that love her...
and too many  to count that could not make it...
she is full of joy...love and laughter...
with her twin girls and son in law....
My Aunt Dottie...the birthday girl...my Mom...and Me...
Sunday we had birthday dinner for my Daughter in law...

the birthday girl and me...

 the birthday girl and Nanny...
 
 
my girls...
my daughter had been to a wedding before our dinner...
the birthday girl loves red velvet cake...
I had wanted to bake her one...
but the time slipped away....
so I had to buy one ready made...
I just put it on my cake stand...
made it look all homemade...
It was a good weekend....
I didn't get to go fishing...but I did get plenty of family time...
hope to get by to visit everyone soon and catch up...

How great to get so many generations of family together for special celebrations.

Janie said...

You're the shortest in that generational picture, Deb. Reminds me of how I'm the shortest among my siblings. Don't know why I just didn't grow!
What fun to have so much to celebrate. And the red velvet cake looks delicious. We recently had red velvet cupcakes for my grandson's first birthday. He loved it, but the cleanup was a mess!

How fun! Happy Birthday to the Birthday Girl! Tell your mom she looks fabulous! Tonight was a fun night at our house, too - my older daughter is 34 today. Had a party yesterday AND today. Birthday season for us, eh?
