WOW! What a fun Wednesday we had in town! Zanie Janie (next door) let us use the front of her coffee shop for a birthday party for my mom. She turns 88 on Monday and we wanted to surprise her a little early. She has put in a rough two years with Dad in the nursing home and she needed something just for her. We had salads, munchies and beautiful cupcakes.

Daughter Ashley (Surre Cakes) made Grandma these beautiful cupcakes. They were almost too pretty to eat.

Daughter Ashley, Daught-in-law Kim and Mom.

Great Grandma and Lucy.

Thanks Zanie Janie!!!

The whole party! It was so much fun and we DID pull off the surprise!

She even got some presents. Happy Birthday Mom!

Last night I went over to help daughter Amanda out for awhile and these two little cuties had to put on party dresses. (Ellie and Caroline)

I could have just swooped them up and brought them home!

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend and lets all keep our fingers crossed that Blogger gets straightened out so we can start leaving comments!!!

Until next time...
