Happy 90th Birthday!!!

Two weeks ago was my grandmother's 90th birthday. Yes-90!!!! We threw a party for her at her home church in Cullman and had such a great time! She has 7 brothers and sisters so there were plenty of cousins, extended family and friends who made the trip to see her.
I've never been really close to many of my extended family, but it was so nice to catch up with some of them. There were a few moments that left me a little speechless, but that's what happens when you are around so many people. Like my cousin who asked me where my baby was, and then argued with me about the fact that I don't have one. Or the time when Kent thought that we had hired a professional photographer. It was really just a cousin taking a very uncomfortable amount of pictures of everything. Hmmmm, wonder if he has a blog? Oh well.
We of course had family picture time. Kent and my brother in law were extremely interested in having so many people take so many pictures of us. My dad only has one brother, and he and his wife have one son. Therefore, I only have one first cousin. (My uncle on my mom's side is a lifetime bachelor, with no children-that he knows of. HAHA!!) So here we all are:

My cousin is on the left, 23 and single. Anyone interested? Here is mamaw with her 4 grandchildren. Aubrey was definitely NOT interested in having her picture taken at this point. She was waaaaay to busy playing with the other kids. Ashley divided us up with the married ones on the right, singles on the left.

Here's just Mamaw Ezma:Isn't she just too cute! She's had strokes in the past and there was a period last year that she had to move in with my parents and my uncle, but she is back to living by herself and doing for herself. She's not as independent as she would like, but in her words, "That's what happens when you get old as dirt."

Last pic is of me and my mom. I don't have enough of these...
