Any birthday is better when you have TWO parties! Saturday my siblings and I invited old family friends, church friends, work friends and Bridge buddies over for an Open House. We all had a fantastic time and enjoyed spending time together reminiscing about when we were kids (the best story was the one Aunt Sharon told about spanking my brother Ben on a road trip from Iowa to California the summer my mom broke her arm- I had the flashback to the backseat of the Ford station wagon) and of course playing games.
I don't think that my mom can complain about her birthday ever again (well at least not for another 12 months). Happy Birthday Mom!
