This kid-wrangling grandma
got a great big surprise this year on her birthday!
She learned just how many people wanted to make SURE it was a happy one.
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.
Her son and daughter-in-law hosted the big shindig,
and made all this beautiful food.
People kept coming to honor the birthday lady.
Lots of family, friends, and even former colleagues.
It was obvious that she has spent a lifetime loving.
These people were so eager to return the love.
Her kids knew she would love a photo with all the grandkids.
She really needs to be an octopus in order to facilitate that.
There was just so much cuteness going on.
And a tiny bit of bossing.
Happy birthday Judi!
Wishing you many, many more years of celebrations
surrounded by the ones you love.
"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God."
1 John 4:7
