75th Birthday Celebration for Mom


Hi there, Friends! Tomorrow my Dear Mom is celebrating her 75th birthday. When she visited for Easter, I also planned an early birthday celebration for her...

As a gift for Mom's milestone birthday, I created a commemorative book. Here's Mom sharing a page with my stepfather, Jeff.

In advance of her visit, I rallied family members so that everyone could contribute a message in the book. I'm so happy that even the grandkids (and great-grand) added their thoughts.  Here's a few excerpts....

  5. Absolutely beautiful, Cecilia--what a special celebration! We are celebrating my mother's 80th next week with some sweet surprises for her, including my sister and a brother flying in from out of town. All five of her children and most grandchildren will be there. Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas :)

  7. The book is such a lovely idea that I'm sure your Mom will treasure. Your Mom does not look 75 at all and I can see a resemblance between you two.

  9. I was interested in your post because I just threw an 80th birthday party for my mother that I blogged about. The party you threw your mother was lovely. I am sure your mom was really touched by the special book you made for her. Great moms need to be celebrated!

  11. Cecelia,
    Happy Birthday to your Mom....She is young but then again, I am unaware of your age. My Mom would have been 97 this year but she was 39 years old when I was born. You are lucky to have her and it looks like she enjoyed her celebration!!
    Thanks for dropping by!
    HUgs,
