My mother turned 90 this week and last Sunday we celebrated.
All Mama's children and their families attended her church where we placed flowers in her honor. My sister played the piano for the whole service and my son sang a solo.
Then that afternoon my three siblings and I hosted a reception for the birthday girl. It was well attended with about 150 family, friends, and her church family.
Mama has often said when she reaches 100 she is going to buy herself a red convertible. So…as a surprise for her my nephew arrived to escort her to the party in his red jaguar! Don’t she look sassy?
We decorated with PINK, PINK, PINK at her request, and tables were filled with pictures and lots of feminine details. We even brought in a comfortable chair for her to sit in to greet her guests, but she refused to sit down for even one minute.
Mama’s only remaining sibling (her sister) and her sister’s husband were special guests.
This is one of my favorite pictures. These are the 3 remaining members of Mama’s high school class. Ms. Mabel turned 90 a couple months back and Mr. Barney will be 90 in September. Don’t they make a cute trio?
Of course, we had to take lots of family pictures too. This is my son, DIL, and grandchildren.
And this is my husband, Mama, and me.
It was a very special day and one I’m sure we will all remember for years to come. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAMA…we’ll do it again on your 100th😊
