Happy Birthday dear MIL

Sunday was my MIL's birthday. She was 86 years young. We had a birthday dinner for her complete with a cake and ice cream. I fixed her favorite: roast beef, creamed potatoes, gravy, veggies, salad, sour dough bread and dessert.

She was my pastor's wife when I was 6 years. We go w-a-a-a-ay back.

Here's the birthday cake (spice - it's almost autumn),
cream cheese frosting w/toasted pecans.
Check out the candle -- it's a crayon candle.
Can you tell that small children dominate the domain at our house?

(Oops! That's a dead gave-away that this celebration was not planned
well in advance or there would have been an adult candle stickn' out of that cake :)

I'm really not cheap. I didn't have enough candles so I just used one.
Let's face it . . . 86 candles = house fire!

I must admit, it was pretty good!

Here she is with some of her grandchildren - my kids!.
Little Bryce is Great Grandchild #20!

May she have more happy and healthy years ahead.

How sweet! Your MIL looks great for 86! I thought that was pretty cool that she was your pastor's wife at one time.

I love the picture of your son, Delayna sp?? and the kids.
What a lovely family.

You're a mighty precious little mother-in-law/grandma yourself!
