Happy 60th Birthday, Mom!

We celebrated my mom's 60th birthday on Saturday. We had a great bbq and all of the family was there (except Ryan and Natalie's family. Missed you guys!). Here is my mom with her cake. By the way, my sister-in-law makes these. Visit her website at the bottom of my blog page!

So here is the best picture. We gave Madison a VERY late birthday present and part of it was this tiara. I got it on Terry's head and then he let us take a picture! Note: this was not an alcoholic birthday so Terry is STONE sober at the moment! Told you he was a teddy bear!
Alex and Alli came and brought little Boston. I was teasing my grandpa that if I was a grandma, what did that make him? He said proudly "A great-great-grandpa!". So we took a picture of five generations.

We had a great time. Thanks to Rachelle for putting it all together. Thanks mom, for having such a wonderful family. You are one of my best friends, I know a lot of people can't say that about their moms and I am lucky that I can. I hope you have 40 more birthdays like this! I love you!
