Two birthday girls

We've had two birthdays in the last couple of weeks.
We celebrated eldest daughter's 50th birthday on Saturday 
with a Mad Hatters tea party. Lots of fun.
Today it is my little mother' 88th birthday, a couple of her 
younger grandsons are taking a fish n' chips tea around for her. 
She loves getting fish n chips as a treat so they'll have a good evening together.

The birthday girls.

Jacqui with her offspring, Caitlin, Monica and Andrew.

The cake, made and decorated by Andrew.
The roses are fresh from the garden.
Roses and owls are two of his mother's favourite things.

I just give all glory to God for His amazing power in her life and body, and I trust He will give her many, many more wonderful quality years upon this earth. He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or even think. Please tell your little mother that I said "HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY', and may she have many more!
