Happy 60th Birthday, Muzzy!!!

On November 6th my Momma turned 60! We decided to do a low-key dinner out so we could conserve our energy for a semi-surprise 60th birthday party on November 8th. She knew we were doing "something" but had NO idea what! Dad, Shannon and I were able to pull off a delightfully PINK party for my mom. Pink is her favorite color so that's where the theme came from...

The whole gang!!!
Mom and Dad with Michael, Kristin, Jameson, and Isabella, Clayton, April, Madison, and Emma, Nic, Me, Shannon, Sam and Fulton and Baby #3 due in 1/2009
The greatest task of the night was getting my brothers to wear pink...but I proved to be successful!

Unlce Phil couldn't come :-(

We feasted on a fantastic dinner!

I prepared Chicken Picatta, Orzo with steamed asparagus and peas drizzled with olive oil and topped with Parmesan cheese. We also had a beautiful spinach salad with warm bacon dressing!!!! YUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMM!

I set pink tables

I baked her favorite....Chocolate Cake and topped it with pink flowers and I made cupcakes for the kiddies for easy access
The kids truly enjoyed the festive atmosphere and celebrating with Muzzy.
And they all pitched in to blow out her candles!
My biggest boo-boo of the night...I forgot her pretty candles!!!! So we had to use a hodge-podge...oh well!
Muzzy opened gifts ranging from beautiful to practical to down right crazy...silly string and fake bling??? It was great!

It was a very special night for an extra special person! Everyone LOVES Muzzy. She always goes the extra mile for everyone. I thought a celebration was in order.
