Orange and Green Icing On My Teeth!

It is good to be back!
I have been away from my
computer for 6 days !

Where have I been?

Celebrating my Mother's birthday!
Isn't her birthday cake beautiful?

We celebrated Mom's birthday during
our annual family reunion.
There were 90 people in attendance.

I had framed hundreds of vintage
photos of Mom for party favors.

Autumn decorations set the festive mood.
I love autumn!

Let me ask you a question...
Does this woman look 80 years old?
No, I don't think so either.

Sure hope I inherited those "young" genes!

Land sakes no...I would have guessed about 15 or 20 years younger...but then that would make you what...10?
Beautiful family photo. You really pulled all the F-stops out for this one and that cake is 2die4!

LOVE your family photo, and I'm SO glad you had one taken, and posted it! I know you get a bit like me, not wanting to post ourselves in our family photos. And I see my boy Tango has a scratch on his face similiar to Riley's nose. Your Mom looks so happy! There are no words to describe the joy and love you see in that photo! Thanks for sharing it!

Take care, Sue

I don't know about the young genes, but you definitely got the young brain and creativity. That cake's awesome, and I can't even imagine making that many party favors. What a great idea, though. You are my heroine.
