The Big Surprise Party!!! Nana is 60!!!

Momma is 60 on Monday and we had a big surprise party with a lot of her girlfriends, sister, daughters and granddaughters! We had all the ladies meet at a church and pile into two limos.

She came out the side door and      started crying!

 The two limos at my folks house

She had fun looking in the cars to see who all was coming!

 This was her corsage from the Flower Boutique.  I love the tiny roses.

We went to the wonderful and beautiful Nona's for brunch in Bricktown.

My sisters, mom, nieces and daughter

Stacie, Sue, mom in law Cindy, Maranda and I
All the gals

Maranda posing in her beautiful JemJam party dress!!

 Avis, the owner of Nona's, came up and told Moma happy birthday too!!:)

We had quiche, bacon, fruit, muffins, mamosas and cake! So yummy!

Momma and her new Paula Deen book from Glenda.

My two pretty little sisters Stefanie and  Stacie.

Patty, Char and Dee rode with us from the church to pick up momma and then they had to get back to work at the Enchanted Cottage.

Ok so what I stayed up until midnight working on every night were all these flower pins that I had learned to make at Kaari Meng's class last week.  
I actually dyed fabric and ribbons to get the color I wanted.  I felt very Martha Stewart! 

The mess I had on the coffee table in the living room all week!
I had the pins to give as a favor at each of the ladies place settings when they arrived at Nona's.  They all put theirs on and I was flattered.  It was really fun to surprise momma.  When we got back to her house, she gave a tour! We then had to give the limos back before they turned into pumpkins!:( 
My mom really is an amazing woman with so many wonderful women in her life.  We should all be so lucky to be blessed with so many sweet girlfriends at the age of 60!  
I love you momma and happy happy birthday!!
