90 Years!

Andy's grandma turned NINETY last Friday.

Obviously, a party was to be had.

I handled decorations.

Henry was in charge of the entertainment.

I think it's safe to say from these photos that the cousins had a blast together.

I printed old photos onto vellum, cut out "frames" using black cardstock, taped 3 together, a candle...voila!...a centerpiece!

Lots of family photos lined up along the mantle...

A family tree showing Grandma holding each of her grandkids and great-grandkids.

Cousins. Goofing off. With my camera. Always fun to find photos on your memory card!

Hey look! He still likes me after all!

Dancing. In the driveway. With a basketball. Because, you know, that's what you do, right?

Me and my beautiful "little" sister.

Henry also found my camera at some point in the evening.

The boys.

The girls.

More dancing. Henry schooling them in the moves.

We girls had gone to see New Moon the night before. The boys mercilessly teased us. So, posing like vampires was the logical thing to do.

Me and my boy. :)

Jeannett you are so modest. I will tell everyone what a beautiful job you did for mom's birthday. The invitations were beautiful as were all the decorations and photos. Many beautiful memories in those photos..such detail you gave to everything. There is no way that I could have ever done what you did as beautifully as you did. It was lots of fun putting it together with you. I can never thank you enough!

Awesome decorations. Great party. Fun had by all. But those are not vampires, sorry to say. Werewolves, maybe, but not vampires.
