|We had mimosas on our third day of partying.|
Somehow this blog post got published before I was ready. I was posting some images from our family reunion on Thanksgiving and Clint's mother's 90th birthday celebration here at our house in Knoxville, TN.
The surprise birthday party was at least six months in the making.
Do you realize how difficult it is to keep a secret like this
from a close family member? :-)
Since this blog post is also my personal scrapbook, I will continue to add some photos later to it since it published prematurely.
|This pile of dishes are stacked up in a precarious manner. There |
was some method to my madness of piling them up
and none were broken.
I love glass, BTW.

sent us this beautiful centerpiece.
|"The owl and the pussy cat sailed out to sea in a|
beautiful pea green boat ... " Clint's mother loves poetry
and recites it beautifully. One of her favorites is the nonsensical poem
by Edward Lear.
|Clint wanted to add each city that was |
represented from our family members and guests
as they arrived. I made these little
signs and stuck them on with Velcro.
|Clint's daughter Debbie and son-in-law Fred drove|
all the way from CT to TN!
|Once again, a tablescape I literally threw together|
using old, new and thrifted items.
This was how I set the smaller kitchen table.
