99 candles - Handmade in the Heartland

99 candles

 Last weekend we took a drive over to where my mom's side of the family lives in southern illinois for a very special lady's 99th birthday.  My great grandma Ruby, Max's great-great grandma turned 99! can you believe that?! Our family threw a surprise birthday party for her and it was quite an elegant affair for a sweet and elegant lady.  My favorite part of the party was when she saw her youngest sister Clari, whom she had no idea would be there and hadn't seen in 15 years, it was a sweet reunion.

 Max found a picture of Matt and I and wouldn't leave it alone, he kept pointing at it, it was funny.

 Walking in to the surprise.
