It was a grand party for my folks. 

This is an envelope addressed to Mom from her mother. " Maureen B. isn't that a pretty name, sounds like a beautiful chord on the piano."
I teared up when I read it. Still do. Such a legacy of love that has been passed down in my family. We are blessed.

These 2 lovelies my aunts Margie and Betty Jane, enjoying cake.
Some of my cousins who helped us celebrate. So happy to have them come. Oh and there are actually 2 sets of sisters in this photo.

Even cake left over for Daddy to enjoy later.!

Days like today... I celebrate marriages and the couples who commit to each other.
Lord bless them all.


  1. oh, momma....that looked like so much fun. wish i could've been there!
    that note from grammy sarah is beautiful, in thought & visual....why didn't i get that loverly flowing script....**grin**
    thanks for posting pics!

  2. It was a really good time. G'pa said " I got to see almost everyone I wanted to see". (Uncle George and his cousin Bob weren't able to be there)
    We had 30 some celebrators, and lots of good remembering.

    Then finished the day off w/cherry cheese cake for Uncle R. since it was his bday.

    You were missed, (and congratulated too).
