Her Children Call Her Blessed

"Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her."

This kid-wrangling grandma

Surprise

got a great big surprise this year on her birthday!

More surprises

She learned just how many people wanted to make SURE it was a happy one.
How many?
I didn't count, but a LOT!
All she really wanted for her day was to go to Jazzercise with her girls in the morning.

But her family had a whole big party up their sleeves.

Son

Her son and daughter-in-law hosted the big shindig,
and made all this beautiful food.

Food

Visiting

People kept coming to honor the birthday lady.
Lots of family, friends, and even former colleagues.

Fun

It was obvious that she has spent a lifetime loving.
These people were so eager to return the love.

Grandchild Wrangling

Her kids knew she would love a photo with all the grandkids.
She really needs to be an octopus in order to facilitate that.
