Happy Birthday, Nana !!

Stephen's mom, aka- Bobbi, aka- Nana just recently had to have her hip replaced.  This was distressful, because we are so far away and couldn't really see, with our own eyes, that she was okay. 

Well, her birthday is TODAY!!  So on Friday, we suddenly decided to pack up, go see her and just celebrate her birthday a few days early. 

Saturday morning, we loaded up the van and headed to NC.  We drove until we got there, showed up on her doorstep with no warning and knocked!

We didn't do our usual visiting, since we weren't going to stay long.  But a few friends happened to stop by that we haven't seen for a while...

And Nana told Papa we were in town, as soon as we got there...

here's Iris showing him her lose tooth...

and all the kids hugging their Papa...

Monday Stephen and Nana ran some errands.  While they were gone, the kids and I baked a cake, ran (literally) to the Walgreen's for decorations, and returned to build a party!

When Stephen and Nana returned, our birthday-hatted selves blew horns and  yelled, "Surprise!  Happy Birthday!"

Iris decorated Nana's new walker and made her a special "balloon friend".

The kids did a kind of "guess who I am" game for our entertainment.  (the tin man, a rhino, and a minecraft zombi)

Clyde had built a pinata, that he filled with candy.  So we all took turns hitting it....

Clyde busted it open...

Then after dinner we had cake...

And Nana opened cards...

Nana & Iris...

Nana & Clyde...

Nana & Lucy...

Nana & Stephen and I....

Then we wrapped up the party with a 6-player game of Clue.  Stephen aka Mr Mustard won.  It was Plum, in the kitchen, with the rope.

Happy Birthday, Nana!!!  We love you!!!
