Happy 75th Mom!!!

My mother turned 75 this week-end!!

There were lots of flowers and this gorgeous cake ... my sister had a cake created with photos of my mother  from her youth to present day. It was breathe taking to see the detail in the photos ~ each one holding a special memory of her life.

and of course many gifts to open!!!

My mother said the best gift ~ was having her three children, their respective spouse and of course her pride and joy, baby Matthew (my brother's son) helping her celebrate! We know my father was there with us all in spirit and smiling that his beloved was turning 75. 

Happy birthday to my darling Mother! To many more wonderful and healthy years ahead....
