We did it! We surprised Mum with a belated 80th birthday celebration. She was thrilled, touched, and happy to see so many wonderful friends. Here’s a shot of Mum with her kids and her kids’ kids, minus our oldest niece and her Dad (brother-in-law). Please note my Mum’s foot attire.
If you liked it, please share it.

I am married. We have two boys, two dogs, and two cats. I am on the Oxford Comma team. I look forward to my first large cup of coffee, black, every single morning, and I look forward to that second large cup of coffee, still black, every single afternoon.

can you say Christmas picture!
Christmas picture! 🙂
The joy is palpable! Love the sox/sandals mix 🙂 MJ
Well, if anyone had hinted I might want to change my shoes, I would have. I’ve ALWAYS followed good advice!
you’re adorable, Mom, and I wouldn’t change a thing!
Pssst…. I wouldn’t either. 🙂
I taught her everything she knows, MJ. Fashion wise, of course.
Happy 80th birthday to your Mum! I can only hope I look as wonderful as she does at that age. Love the footwear.
I love the footwear too, AA. She has excellent taste. 🙂
Love your family photo. Now we know who dressed you. 🙂
Hahahaha! Actually, my Mom was influenced by me. 🙂
I bet she really was surprised, especially if the party was belated.
We took the idea off of one of your blog posts and party ideas. (smile) My Mom is almost always 15 minutes late for every she attends. We figured we’d celebrate her party 15 weeks late. (Or something like that.)
Happy birthday to your mom!
Thank you, Darla.
Happy Birthday to your lovely mother! Looks like Charlie and Joey found just the right cranny to fit them. Adorable family photo.
Thank you, Georgette.
I’m struck by Joe’s smile and your mom’s smile. She’s passed along some remarkable genes!
I agree, Linda. I looked at the smiles again, after reading your comment. I appreciate you pointing it out. It is nice to see how other see us, if that makes any sense. It gives me a greater appreciation.
I found you!
Hahahaha! Thanks for looking. (I think.) 🙂
Love it! Happy belated 80th to Mom!
Thank you, Susan. We all had a wonderful time.
This is a better picture than the one I saw of yours on Shutter Fly, Lenore. Even though Joe’s face is half cut off ~ can we photo-shop Shannon in? Thanks for mentioning her and her dad. Great photo – looks like we are all having fun! Oh yeah, we did!!
Photo-shopping Shannon in it is possible, but it is complicated. First, I don’t know how to do it. Second, I’d hate to bother the one and only person I know that could do it. But hey – it was a good idea. 🙂
