50th Birthday Party for Mrs. Mapother!

Mom's kids all emailed me something to put in a birthday card to her.  
It made her cry, so I think we did our job.

Lily was just pretending, but Amara wasn't.

It was fun to throw a birthday celebration for my mom.  It being her 50th, it had to be memorable.  So, we had a festive birthday dinner, showered her with flowers and love notes, and topped it off with a yummy homemade cake.  It was fun.
~Mom's Birthday Menu~
Appetizer- Shrimp Cocktail
Drink- Pina Colada
Entree- Grilled Steak, Seafood Scampi, Broccoli, Rice, Rolls
Dessert- Caramel-Soaked Choco-Butterfinger Layer Cake with
Whip Cream Frosting and Caramel Drizzle!

You'll notice in the video below that Amara already has some whip cream on her lip, even though we haven't started to sing to Grandma yet.  We put a bowl over the cake to prevent the kids from getting into it again, but that was temporary.

This next video is Amara mistaking herself for Grandma and mistaking this for her very own 50th birthday, thus, her cake, her candle, her moment.
