Mom turned 80 last Wednesday (August 4). We had a surprise party for her on Saturday. She didn't have a clue until she got there. There were no fights. Everyone had fun. The kids got to run around because we rented a party room rather than made them sit still in a restaurant. There were 30 of us and my sister made a chocolate cake that would feed, wait for it, 82 people. Lots of leftovers. It was, all in all, a wonderful party.
