The Party Weekend

Thankfully Mom will only be 60 once!! It was the party that would not end!! But what fun we had!! As you recall Ub, Boog and I ran to the school of Friday to wish her HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! (Which by the way Ubby can't quit saying: Happy Birthday, Grandma!!)
So the real party got into full swing on Sat. On Sat. evening we went to McDonald's for supper!! (Obviously we are in Berne, check out the clock on the wall.)
After supper we took in a show!!! A good time was had by all. Except for Stacey, who had to work. We were kind enough however, to call him and check in before the show started.
The official-official party was on Sunday afternoon at Swiss Village Social Corner (the retirement home where my grandparents live.) (Mom was teased many times that her party was a retirement home.)
I was really pleased with how the whole thing turned out. Gwen brought all the pretty balloons, napkins, plates and stuff to go with the table favors and centerpieces, that I made. Now be sure to rush on over to the Party Gallery and Gwen can help you too. Use my name and I am sure that won't add more than 15% to you final bill. LOL
Table Favors:

This is dessert! I had to show you how awesome these plates looked with everything!!
The kids served the adults supper. I won't go into details; however, nothing major was spilled and no one was burned.
After a great meal (thanks to everyone who helped with the food), we enjoyed talking with each other. We a great time!! We were sad however, my Grandma Marge was not able to be there, she had had a stroke the day before and was in the hospital. I love this picture of my two Grandpas talking to each other.

It was a lot of fun and I am sure we will all remember these special days for many years to come.

I think that section of Mcd's has your name on it! It's sort of like church! ( old habits are hard to break)

I bet Gwen helped a little with the decorating, huh? It's beautiful!

It's my turn to decorate tomorrow!
