Happy Birthday Mom!

My mom's birthday was Wednesday. I don't think she would be happy if I posted her age. We decided the weekend before that we should give her a little party. So I put in a call to Dawn and the Cake Pan to see if she could do anything for me last minute. She made me a great two tiered pink and white cake. It was perfect and my mom loved it. It was added to a table decorated by flowers that my dad got her and her boss got her. Also my sister bought a large balloon arrangement. We surrounded it by gifts. My sister had to work but the rest of us siblings were there, as well as our kids and spouses, and my grandmother and grandfather (my mom's parents). We had a simple dinner and cake. Nothing fancy but she had a great time. Said it was perfect and she was not expecting anything. I don't know if this was really a surprise party but we didn't let her now we were planning anything for her. I was a bad event planner in he fact that I didn't get the camera out at all. (Dawn if you have a copy of the cake would you please send it to me to post here). My mom is not the biggest fan of getting her picture taken for some reason. She is beautiful. Here she is with Teresa at her graduation.
