Yay Momma! Happy Birthday...

   Yesturday was my Mom's 70th birthday party! We surprised her with a bit of an impromptu gathering at Applebee's in Littleton, CO
Originally, her friend Beverly Wise had invited her out for her birthday and Mom had invited me to come along. Now, little did she know that Thomas, Stephen, Carrie and Dianne would all be there as well! Surprise!

I was actually really lucky, because after posting on Facebook that I was going out to dinner with Mom that evening, my brother Thomas called me to ask if I was going to Mom's party. I asked him which party that was, and he told me their plan. Good thing too, because I lucked out and was able to get a 1/4 sheet cake from our favorite bakery (Indulge Bakery) for Mom's party. You might think you don't like cake... I think its just because you've never tried theirs before... trust me, its amazing. They also did our wedding cake. Best cake ever. Hands down.

 Clockwise from the top left: Beverly, Thomas, Dianne, Carrie, Stephen and Momma Edith.

            It took Mom a little while to get to the restaurant, because she found out at the last minute that she had another patient to help across town and ended up getting there about an hour and a half later than planned. We were all having fun, though and were all about two or three drinks in before she got there. It was so much fun, catching up and telling hilarious stories about mystery gas and the adventures of youth. By the time Mom got there, we had finished our appetizer smorgesbord and were ready for dinner and the guest of honor.
             Once dinner was done, we were ready for cake and candles. At first, Mom was fighting us on how many candles to put on the cake. We finally settled on 7. One for every decade she'd been around. She tried to tell us that if we put all 70 on the cake that it would burn down the restaurant. It would have been pretty until then, though. LOL

A Beautiful occasion for a Beautiful Lady!
Happy 70th Birthday Mom... and here's to many, many more to come!
