Happy 80th Birthday!

My Grandma is turning 80 this month and we had a big birthday party for her at my mom's house this last weekend. There were close to 50 people there. She has 7 kids and 6 of them were able to make it and brought some of their kids and grandkids. She also has a few living siblings and although my grandpa has passed away his living siblings came too. When it was over I asked her if she was happy to see everyone and she said, "Well I guess, but I don't know who half those people are." None the less we love her and 80 years is a lot to celebrate!
Here is the birthday girl.
I was in charge of the table set up so I thought I would show that off.

Violet was a big help! She could be a little party planner some day.

Yes, we actually lit 80 candles! It was really warm and a little scary.

Way to blow Grandma! She ended up getting a little help from my kids that were watching over.

Here is my mom. She is a little stessed, but I might be too if I was hosting this big of a party.

Jack Jack and Violet found some friends to play with. These are some of my cousins' kids. So I guess that makes them 2nd cousins? or cousins once removed? Who really knows. But they had fun anyway. Dash was no where to be found during most of it. Crowds are just not his thing.

These are just a few pictures of some of my cousins that were there. I use to babysit most of them so its crazy that they are all grown up, but it was nice to see all those that I haven't seen in years.
