Guess who had a birthday on Saturday! Our wonderful, Great, turned 95 years old!
Everyone in our family wears this wreath on their birthday. It came all the way from Czechoslovakia, which is where my family is from.
My girls know how to party!
Great loved her present, a tapestry of Mary and baby Jesus.
Yum! Though I almost had a heart attack over the kids eating all that red dye. It's the only health conscious thing I worry about!
Francesca thought the whole cake was just for her!
We were worried the whole time that the sparklers were going to set off the fire alarm, but we lucked out.
When you're 95, you get to make a really big wish!
Great and her oldest great-grand child, my sweet son, Elliot.
This balloon was way bigger than little Catherine.
Special birthday gifts.
This is Great's friend, Lou. He doesn't really like anyone, but he loves Great. They are buddies.
We had a great idea to make bean-bag socks for everyone to toss. Beans pretty much ended up all over, but everyone had fun. I love how Victoria is just standing so straight and tall.
Everyone waited patiently for their cake.
Victoria kept setting off the alarm by opening the door. Her newest word is "outside".
Two of my favorites, Jean and Jean. Jean, with the purple shirt calls everyone "Honey Bunny".
Happy Birthday Great! We're so glad we got to be with your on your special day. We love you!!
