Mom's big 90!

Mom turns 90!

Mom and her birthday cake! Happy camper at 90!!! Two of my daughters, (from the left) Brittney, Mom/Nan, me and Heidi
Who's this guy? Some stray just wondered in!!! He he! Pete came to wish Mom a happy birthday and give me some much needed hugs!
Above: Note cards I made for Mom using my Just Rite monogram set.

The afternoon was a smash! The appetizers were amazing! We all got to go dinners, since we couldn't stay that late! Yummy! My SIL is an amazing cook to boot!
I had a very difficult time with my body cooperating, the drive and the afternoon did me in! I tell you though, it was so worth it to see the look on my dear Mom's face when she walked into the living room and saw all of us sitting there! I will never forget her expression as long as I live! Mom was blown away and all teary eyed! We made her day!
I am so happy to be back home on my mountain taking it easy! Real easy!!!
Card post tomorrow for sure!
Thanks for your visit!
Deb

Wow, I am so glad to see photos!! You all look great! I am so happy that your mom was surprised to see you. How fun.
Sorry you are not feeling well. Take it easy.
My busy pumpkin is even bisier now that he discovered how to open the kitchen cabinets and all the drawers. We are still working on the sleeping thing, but it's better. I cut out the late evening nap and now he goes to bed at a "normal" time.

Deb what beautiful memories for you, you are all so pretty. Hope you are feeling better.

You asked about my spellbinder dies, you need them all of course, but you should staart with the shape you use the most, just look back at your cards, do you use circles or ovals? Squares or rectangles. You will love them, whatever you get.
Hugs cindy
