Today my Mother is 80!!!
On Saturday we had a surprise Birthday Party for her. My Sisters were there along with most of our children and Grands.
First we told her to dress up as we were taking her to Cracker Barrel for dinner. My Sister got her a new dress and took her to get her hair permed. She was told when she got back home we would call when we were ready to go.
We put dinner on the tables. Boy did we have a wonderful meal. Some of the "kids" BBQ 30 chickens. There were homemade rolls, baked beans, deviled eggs, green beans, potato salad, ranch potatoes, pasta salads, pickles, olives. Soft drinks in tubs of ice and of course Birthday cake(2).
We made the call and all 50 plus of us lined up in my sister's driveway. When my other sister drove up with her there we are were singing Happy Birthday. My Mom looked at my sister and asked"how many people are going to Cracker Barrel"???
She had such a fun day. By the way one of the Grands is taking her to Cracker Barrel today!!!
