Happy Birthday, MaMaw!

This pretty lady turned 90 years old this month and we had the sweetest party to celebrate the nine decades that she's witnessed!!

Party guests included everyone from people that call her "sister"
(like Aunt Joy and Aunt Beth)... 

to "Auntie" like my momma's cousin Patsy... 

to MaMaw... like these crazy grands... 

to "Mrs. Martino" like her sweet neighbors from when I was a kid, the Westmans. 

She spent the day doing what she loves... sitting in her favorite spot watching people eat food that she cooked and getting presents (MaMaw LOVES getting presents). 

Sonya is the world's greatest gift-giver and found this amazing NY Time Birthday Book that commemorates the date of birth with the NY Times headline from every year of their date of birth. Seriously so cool to flip through and see how much this world has changed.  Her generation has seen and witnessed so many incredible things - I can't even imagine what they must think of all the mess and fuss we create over insignificant worries. 

We ended the day with a special cousin Christmas...

and this was probably her favorite moment from the day - surrounded by all of her great grands.

We keep things informal around here - photos kneeling down are just as great as everyone perfectly posed. 

Jody and Sonya flew in which was a gift to all of us - two years in a row with them at Christmas!

Jeremy and Cristina...

and even one with me! (Ryan had to work all weekend, so he didn't get to come). 

Happiest of birthdays, MaMaw! We love you!
