Wednesday Reflection on 80

 The cake came out great from Wal-Mart.  The scanned icing photos made it a hit.  Chocolate goodness
 I have to brag that renting tables and chairs was brilliant  - we could fit 21 adults easily into the room. It was nice having everyone together to participate.  Kids were tucked into the kitchen
I don't have a picture of the tasty Tex-Mex from Miguelitos - it's all gone!!!
 Fun banner to greet the birthday boy
Saturday November 12th was a success as it heralded in Ray's Dad's birthday. Here are his mom, niece, and father.  He's still  recovering from some surgery that slowed him down a bit. But he's on the mend and hopefully his health improves for many birthdays to come.


  1. Hopefully many more indeed. Always great when it goes off without a hitch and a happy birthday was had.

  2. Cake turned out great. He also looks really good for eighty. We all hope we can be that lucky.

  3. Sounded like a wonderful celebration! Wishing your father in law many more years of birthdays!


  4. What a great cake! I think tucking kids away in a different room is always a good idea ;-)

  5. Sounds like a fun party. Neat cake! That's one to remember!
