We should all be so blessed to make it to 90 years old and live independently, be in great health, have a million friends and make God smile every day for His perfect creation. I just described my grandma, Gigi, in a nutshell.
Gigi is so special and we all knew that we wanted to celebrate in a special way and what better way than having a surprise party. But surprising Gigi is like trying to surprise a psychic; she always knows everything before anyone else. But, I think we truly did surprise her!
Love that look!
Cole wanted to put 90 candles on the cake but instead of putting Gigi in danger, he settled for a nine and a zero instead!
Gigi had an even bigger surprise when her daughter and grand daughter from Texas drove in for the party, which meant all five of Gigi and Granddaddy's children were able to be with her.
After the surprise birthday party, we continued the celebration at our house with chili, tamales, pasta salad and whole lot of fun.
Love, love, love that Aunt Betty and Uncle Steve drove over from Collierville, TN for the party AND that they crashed at the Ewing Bed & Breakfast! They made it the perfect weekend.
Cousin Zane with his precious daughter, Isabel. Holy smokes, three year olds sure have a ton of energy.
Now everyone has gone home and this coming week is looming with lots of appointments but I am so thankful for the blessings this past weekend brought to our family.
"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
~1 Thessalonians 5:18
