Mom's birthday never fell on Mother's Day ( the second Sunday in May), but it was always pretty close.
For several years now, my youngest brother and his dear wife have hosted a family party for my mom's birthday on Mother's Day. It is a time when we all come together to celebrate our Mom and our Memaw.
Today is her 89th birthday, but Sunday we will celebrate with one and all.
How many are expected to attend?
Three partners of children
Eight partners of grandchildren
Whew! My dear mom came from a family of 9 children, but her 35 is a "passel" of folks!
Happy Birthday, Mom. See you later, and I'm bringing the dinner.
As for the other 34 of you family members, see ya'll on Sunday at MOUF's.
