Day Eighty Six 2011

Today we celebrated my mother's birthday. She turned 90 years old yesterday. Thanks again to our go-to cake creator, Tammy, who once again made a totally delicious birthday cake. Believe me, it tasted as wonderful as it looked!

Here's the birthday girl, blowing out those big numbers. Her sister, Joy Brown, who is 96 years young, is sitting right there next to her, thanks to my sister Jane, who made sure Aunt Joy got to help Mom celebrate today.

This is the year of BIG-O birthdays! From left to right: Mom's great grand daughter Shelby Myers turns 10 in July, Mom's grand daughter Kendra Shelton turns 30 in July, Mom's grandson Chris Mabry turned 40 in January, Mom's daughter Jane Foy turns 50 in October, Mom's son in law Don Foy turns 50 in May, and Mom's son in law Neil Ranft turned 60 in February. And of course Mom hit the Big Nine-0 on March 26. How cool is that!

Here's Mom with all but two of her grandpeeps and great grandpeeps. Front row left to right: great grandson Elijah Myers, grand daughter Julia Foy, grand daughter Sarah Foy, grand daughter Kelly Kimbrough, grand daughter Kendra Shelton, and grand daughter Evan Mabry. Back row from left to right: great grand daughter Shelby Myers, great grandson Ethan Mabry, great grand daughter Ashley Mabry, grandson Chris Mabry, and grand daughter Holly Myers. (Missing in action: grandsons Ian Mabry and Alex Mabry)

Mom's peeps!

I'm telling you, folks, this is THE BEST FAMILY on the planet. I'm so thankful we could all be together today to celebrate our mom's/granny's/great-granny's 90th birthday! Looking forward to doing it all over again next year, Mom! Love you!!

Amen! I'm so glad we could all be together with Mom. (I feel really bad because it did not even cross my mind to invite Alex!!! I knew Ian wasn't there, but I'm ashamed to say that I didn't think of Alex! Argh!)

I believe that was the best Tammy cake ever!
