Elvis Has Left the Building (or house)

This was so funny. My Mom thought she, her sister, her niece and I had reservations at a swanky restaurant. There she was caught in the middle of "SURPRISE"! That is her as she walked in my front door. We had to tell her to please come inside, the boys were crying to see her. HEhe! We are so sneaky!

This she and my Daddy. She was still in tears she was so happy.

Here she is posing with Elvis 1 and Elvis 2!

This is me, the big one in the white, my Mom, my cousin and my Aunt.

Here are her rose arrangement and cake.

Here is some of the food. There was soft drinks (I forgot to make coffee, oops!), nachos and cheese, buffalo chicken dip, hot crab dip, cheeses and crackers, summer sausage from venison, veggie bars, grape salad, fruit tray w/ cream cheese dip, pigs in a blanket, chips and french onion dip, the cake was homemade strawberry and then we had mini cupcakes (chocolate w/ mint icing and butter w/ chocolate icing) and then there were nuts.

This is my brother and his family, with our twin boys.

Here is my Mom, still in shock, although she decided she liked being 56 better than 65 She is so funny!

Here she is opening gifts. That is a framed picture of my nephews in basketball uniforms with Coach (my brother, their Dad). That would be Tiger looking on

Here she is looking at a cute rose bush and that apple in the basket is a bird house. I love that!

Well, there it is! My Mom is still talking about the party and what a great time she had. My goal was for her to feel special and I think it worked out well! It was all for her and praise the Lord for a great Mom! I love you Mom!

Blessings to you all!
