Grandma Dorothy's 80th Birthday Extravaganza

(art work by Aaron)
We had a birthday blowout to honor Grandma Hendrix on June 26th. Penee put a lot of planning and work into the whole affair. It turned out wonderfully. Lots of great food, family and other delights.

(Cake by Candy)

What would we do without Auntie Candy and her mad cake skills. She simultaneously made this cake and designed and executed an award winning float for her Granddaughter. Could she be any more amazing?!?! Me things not.

Grandma got to hold court (that's her in the beautiful pink jacket) with her sister, who came all the way from Montana to celebrate with her.

There was eating

Shuffle board playing (as befitting an 80th b-day party)

There were tributes of singing, poetry and mostly lots and lots of love.

Happy birthday Grandma Dorothy! We love you.
