Happy 90th, Phyllis!

It was 1922. Warren G. Harding was President, Ulysses was published, the first US naval aircraft carrier was commissioned and the Eskimo Pie was introduced. The stellar event of the year, however, was Phyllis’ birth “on Grandma’s farm”, as she tells us.

As we all know, time flies when you’re having fun, and here we all are celebrating Phyllis’ 90th birthday. Mark and Jean have flown in from Florida and Gail is here from Montana, as well as Tina and family up from the OC.  We’ve had three nights of parties already – not sure how we’ll top this when her 100th rolls around…

There is a story to go with this cake. Many thanks to Ashleigh for doing this!

    The party was perfect with singing, viedo, food and drink to say nothing of a bit of conversation. I am much blessed to be able to enjoy life and those who share it with me. To have my whole immediate family together is no small task. Many kuddios to the family party planner(M2) who always insists upon doing more than expected. Looking forward to the next bigg one.

  2. AMAZING photos!!!! Wish we were there. HAPPY 90TH!!!!!
