90 Years of Life Happening

Life Happening - May 5, 2012
Saturday we spent the day celebrating Mike's mom's 90th birthday. We planned the party for about 100 people. My job ahead of time was to scan, edit, and print old photos of her to put out on the tables. My job on that day was to take photos of everyone and upload them later so all could see or have them.

So, here she is after her 90th birthday party with her brother-in-law who was celebrating his 94th birthday that same day!!

A total of 184 Years of "Life Happening".

They both look well and they must have a lot of stories to tell.....It looks that they've been getting on in age beautifully, which is a merit in itself and a success.....

A grand image of 'life happening' Barbara! They could each teach us a thing or two about their longevity! How blessed you and Mike are to still have his mom.

If I am fortunate enough to reach 90, I would be delighted if I even look half as good as these two wonderful folks! Just wonderful looking they are. And as I mentioned to you yesterday, the family is totally fortunate to have you as the photographer and assembler of all things pictorial! I am still wondering if there was any brisket around??? A beauty of a shot, Barbara - I love this one :-)

And here I thought you were going to say, "And here she is at age 60." She is quite young looking for 90 years. A great portrait capture of these two as they celebrate their special day!
