Mom-mom's Surprise Party, Part 2

If you didn't read "Mom-mom's Surprise Party, Part 1," please do so now.  Alright!  Now we're all on the same page! 

Instead of numbering the tables, seating for the 110 guests was done by decade (two tables per decade).  The table's decade was denoted by a cutout of Mom-mom's face.  The centerpieces were made using Mom-mom's treasures and memories from that decade.  Jill snuck into her parents' house at times that Mom-mom wasn't there in order to acquire these treasures!

"Is she here yet?"

Waiting patiently

I only have a picture of me with the birthday girl from behind!

The DJ's were fantastic!

Friends as close as family


The old singing-into-the-thumb routine

Shake it!

Oh, boy!

"I think I am the youngest person here."

Happy Birthday, Mom-mom!
