G-Ma Turns 82

Today is my Mom’s 82nd birthday.  We celebrated with her yesterday by taking some cupcakes to the nursing home and it’s a good thing we brought extras!  Once the singing started some of the other residents decided to join in the birthday festivities.  One man got a little upset when he thought there were no more cupcakes and he was going to get left out.  He calmed down though once we got a cupcake for him.

Mom didn’t remember that it was her birthday but sure was excited when Liam gave her a gift and a hug.

It made me happy to see Mom in such good spirits.  We had a good visit and lots of fun singing and talking with the other ladies that sat at the table with us.  It’s always sad to go visit her in the nursing home but she seems content and is getting good care.

I’m not sure what the face she is making in the picture below is all about, but she had green icing all over her face by the time that cupcake was finished.  The other lady in the photo licked all the icing off her cupcake and then gave it back to me.  😉

Here are a couple of videos from the party:

I love Annie’s response in the next video:

Happy Birthday Mom, we love you!


  1. What precious pictures! You are so blessed to still have your mom with you – as I’m sure you well know! I lost my much-beloved mom when she suddenly passed away in 2006. She was only in her early 60s.

    Your little boy is an absolute doll… something else I’m sure you already know!!

    Best wishes to all of you.
