The 87th Year Birthday Bash....

Isn't there a saying that goes something like "Carpe diem?"  Seize the day!  It was just what we did this lovely rainy/snowy Seattle weekend.  My sweet Mom was turning 87 this year and I could not just sit home in Utah and let her celebrate without me so I did what I do best......I planned a party!  It may seem to you that 87 is not a proper milestone but just this last August Mom was diagnosed with cancer and somehow the big C word spurred me into action.  Mom is doing really well and the treatments have helped so much but still you never know.  So no time like NOW to have a party and party we did!
