Shhh...irly is 60!

As most of you know, I have been helping plan a surprise 60th birthday party for my mom who turned the big 6-0 last week. Derek and Libby wait next to the door for Nonna to pull in the driveway. Mom thought that she was going to Mark & Denise's house to practice for their Marti Gras party (the reason Mom is wearing Marti Gras Beads). When she walked in the door, we all started to sing "Happy Birthday" to her.
Libby was thrilled to see her Nonna & Pop. She had talked about Pop all week long!

After Mom made her rounds to the 49 people that were there, thanking them for coming, we sat down to a yummy dinner! Special thanks to Denise (of course), Lorraine, Grace and Jeanne for helping me with the food!! After we just sat down to eat, we heard someone say, "Is there some free Chicken here?", and Philip & Lucia walked around the corner to surprise us all! They had flown in from Baltimore for the night to wish Nonna a great birthday! Above is Nonna and her girls.

Nonna & Pop with Libby & Lucia.

Here she is with my uncles Mark & Eddie in their Marti Gras costumes. Don't ask!!!
Finally, I had to add this picture of Libby & Jeremy. He was so good with her and she loved to play Little People with him! What a sweetie!
