90 years

My Mom was 90 years old yesterday.  The party was well attended with about 250 people showing up to help her celebrate.

Everything went smoothly, all the food was good and there were left overs and no one went away hungry.  We served ham and pulled pork on buns, cheese, fruit, pickles, mints and cakes...we also had gluten free options...cakes, ham and cheese and mints.


There was plenty of cake!

Relatives and friends came from far and wide.


It snowed for a bit in the morning but in the afternoon the sun came out.

  8. Happy birthday Madeline. What a fun day for her with friends and family sharing her special day. The carrot cake looked wonderful with that design of frosting. I bet people had a lot of fun choosing the kind of cake that they would like to eat. I bet some people had more than one kind along with a cookie.

  14. You all worked so hard to make your Mom's birthday a wonderful day and it looks like you succeeded. The menu sounds delicous and the photo of your Mom is priceless. She makes 90 look young! So many people to help her celebrate is a tribute to the life she has led. I'm sure she appreciated each person who came to share the day with her.
    Blessings,
