Eighty Years Strong

Today, Happy Birthday wishes go to my Mother-in-law, Elsie. Still still lives in her own home and is active in several organizations. She sells Avon and has over 80 regular customers.

We are hosting an Open House at our church. We expect 200 people. Well, we really have no idea...but have enough cake, punch, nuts, plates, cups and napkins for 200.

Later this evening we are hosting a family party in our home. The weather looks to be cooperating. It is calm and will be about 80 degrees today. Therefore, we can enjoy our deck. Hopefully, there will be pics of the event to share...

...Perhaps you will get a peak at our kitchen.

Happy Birthday to your mother-in-law. A busy but funfilled day for you and your family. A great memory-maker. Can't wait to see your red kitchen. My favorite color. I painted my living room red, then my main bath, and will never change them. Can you say BEAUTIFUL? And I know yours is too.

Outdoor summer parties are the best -- especially if there are sweet homemade snacks involved. Hope it was wonderful weather for your party!
