My Mom's 95th Birthday!

My mom is 95 years old! Her birthday was on Saturday. We had a big party. It was so much fun! Former neighbors came, relatives, friends from church, and friends from where she currently lives. I think Mom had a good time, and we three sisters surely did. Later in the evening, after Mom had a nap, and the rest of us cleaned up the party room (see my cousin's daughter gleefully vacuuming in high heels), a bunch of family members went out for dinner. That was fun, too.

This is Mom and her three daughters. Our brother couldn't come, unfortunately.




My mom has outlived all her siblings and her husband (our dad). She has four children, seven grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren with another one coming in July. She has seen a lot of changes in her life! She remembers, when she was five years old, they sold their horse (and she cried), because they had a car and no longer would need the horse and buggy. And now we're searching far into space and using computers with amazing powers! What a change in her world!
