Happy Birthday to our Mom, who celebrated her 85th birthday this past weekend. My mother is a plain and humble person, who doesn't like a lot of fuss or recognition. She would have never agreed to a party. So we had to make it a surprise.
She loves her family and is at her happiest when we can all be gathered together. Her second favorite thing to do is go to church. She has been a devote catholic all her life and never missed a mass. She has worked and served her Church for over 60 years. She is the best cook in the world and she enjoys gardening and flowers.
In her earlier years her main hobby was embrodery. She has done an excellent job raising her 6 children. We owe everthing to her! She has been our everything♥

We love you MAMA!!! Thank you for all you do! I know that I speak for all my brothers and sisters. She tells us she doesn't want another party until she's 90.

Happy Birthday Mother..You are such a blessing...It was a great party. Her only request for her 90th bday is to have it at the White House.....we have 5 years to get that together.

Celebrating an elder is a very important part of being a true family. I don't know your family but it looks like you're right; she did a fantastic job! Your pictures show me what I'd been missing. My gramma passed when I was 6 and my Mom lived til I was only 19. The closest I've come to this much love of a family matriarch was at my husband's Grandmother's 85th birthday party. It brought back wonderful memories.

I saw a photo of you(Cici),your mother and daughters(?). 3 Generations together. That's an awesome thing. Much Peace and Many Blessings to your family. :)

She is an absolutely beautiful woman. Did you make that sweater for her as a b-day gift? I recognize the pattern.
