She's my mom and she celebrated a birthday. Her 80th! That's a milestone.
She got to play the part of Queen for the day. We had a party for her. She will tell you that she doesn't like all the fuss but I do believe she enjoyed herself that day.
She had the majority of her family with her -- husband, kids, grandchildren and greats. She was also lucky enough to have her sister and two of her brothers there to celebrate with her. We had four generations representated that day, aged 6 mos. to 81 years.
