80 years

I am blessed to have my grandparents living next door to me.
January 4th, 2011
Melba Brown- grandma turned
80 yrs young

We had fun with a birthday dinner, roast and all the trimmings,
and a strawberry shortcake for birthday cake.

She was pleased that I didn't put 80 candles on the cake.
I assured her they wouldn't all fit. We laughed.
I also told her about a SWEET friend who did that for me on my 35th.

We were camping and she put all 35 candles on the cake and the
 smoke detector went off like we were a blaze.
My grandma laughed so hard at that story and I will never
forget that Birthday.(thanks HG)

Now the fun part. I was busy making the evening special
so the hubby snapped all the pictures for me.

I was very surprised by one when I uploaded them
but I had to add it because well it's just plan
FUNNY, and I Love that he loves me!

Go ahead laugh. I did!
Happy birthday grandma.

That is so funny! The birthday meal sounds delicious, and happy 80th birthday to your grandma! Looks like she is doing great. I had forgotten that I put 35 actual candles on your cake ~ what a great memory! I still have a picture of that birthday.
