happy birthday Grammie!

My mom turned the big 6-0 this year! 

We spent the day with her for her birthday & brought her a cake 
and some presents.. it was a fun day!

Aidan was beyond excited to giver her a special gift that I had
been working on putting together for the last few months, 

I gave her "60 years of memories" .. 
sixty envelopes, all filled with a memory of her life 
remembered by her loved ones about her.

Aidan helped with the memories too, and loved hearing the
funny things about his Grammie. 

Apparently, my mom HATED to go to school when she was little, 
and frequently had fits getting on the school bus.. 
Aidan is still laughing about that one!

There were also a lot of sentimental memories, 
where my mom would get choked up.. 
I love this picture of her, so many people love you mom! :)

We ended the day with dinner & a special cake!

My mom loves pigs, so we got her a pig birthday cake! :)

Adalyn loved the cake too! 

Happy Birthday Mom, we love you!
