Celebrating 100

Today is my grandmother's 100th birthday. We celebrated this milestone birthday with a party in her honor on Sunday afternoon. Tess and great grandma

Enough cake to feed an army. Or the many, many descendants of this lady.

There was lots and lots of picture taking. This is Grandma and her 5 children.
Bob, Carl, Edith, Howard, and Charles
Each of the kids had pictures with their offspring.
This is my Dad, the baby of the family with 3 of his 5 children, and grandchildren.
(Yeah, I have 5 kids too, and so does Uncle Carl. It's apparently an average number in this family.)
These are all the great grandkids. It's funny how they range in age from 10 months to the married with children girls in the back. In fact, there are some great, great grandkids older than some of the great grandkids.
And so begins the Tessapalooza!
The big kids were two busy running around with all the little cousins to stand still for pictures.
Remember this dress?

If you're a Reds fan, listen for the shout out for my Grandma Wilma during tonight's game!

Happy Birthday Grandma!

PS. See why I told you to always shoot from a high angle. That shot is not flattering to my quadruple chin. :P

Wow, Happy 100!

My MIL is 86 and C being the youngest of 10, he has nephews his age and older. I'm younger than C so I have nieces and nephews that are older than me. My MIL has grandchildren from 42 years to 9 months - 44 of them too. I think she only has 25 - 30 great grandchildren.

Big families are awesome!

The photos of Grandma with Tess are wonderful! I imagine it's been a long time since she held a little one and she looks like she's really enjoying it. So good to see all of you. You are looking fabulous with your fantastic weight loss and the kids were so friendly and polite. I completely enjoyed the day and am already looking forward to August!
