We celebrated Mama's 60th birthday this weekend. We had a surprise party for her and what a fun evening it was. She was surrounded by family and friends. My aunts (mama's sisters and Laurie) helped me with the food. I am so thankful for them. We did a slide show for her as well with pictures from the time she was a little girl until now. There were a few tears shed! I will warn you now, this post has a lot of pictures! :)
This is a Mrs. Nancy Callis cake and it was just as good as it was pretty. Everyone loved the cake, she's the best!
Daddy, Kennie, Robbie and I practiced a few of mama's favorite songs for a couple of weeks and did them for her as a surprise. The Beatles "In my Life" and Merle Hagard's "Silver Wings." Here is Kennie, Daddy and Robbie along with Landon and Abigail singing "Happy Birthday"
Make a wish Mimi!
