Mom's 90th Birthday

No cards today, but I wanted to share my mom's 90th birthday celebration with you. She lives in an assisted living facility, and we all gathered in the library to celebrate.

This is a photo of my mom -- with me (in the white top), my sister Dotsy and my brother Bob. Dotsy flew in from Illinois, and Bob flew in from Pennsylvania.

This is a photo of my mom's grandchildren who attended. The two guys are my sons Doug and Scott. My niece Laura is in red, and my daughter Kathi is in blue. Scott is the only one who had to come from out-of-state. He lives in Alabama. Unfortunately, his children have already started school, so Scott's wife Bonnie and three children could not attend. In addition, my sister's son was not there. He lives in Illinois with his family. My brother's son lives in Pennsylvania, with his wife and two boys. They, also, could not attend.

This picture is of some of my mom's great-grandchildren. There are two more who live in Pennsylvania, one in North Carolina, two in Illinois, one here in Florida, and three in Alabama.

A great time was had by all who attended.

Beautiful pictures of a loving family. There is nothing better than a family getting together to celebrate a special occasion like this.
