Happy 60th Birthday MOM!!!!!

So Tuesday was my mom's 60th birthday!!! My sisters and I (my sisters did most the work since they could all get together in AZ) planned a surprise birthday party for my mom. It was SOOOO much fun and boy was she surprised! It all turned out so great and was decorated sooo stinkin cute (thanks to Annie not being able to sleep at night because she couldn't stop the great ideas flowing into her mind ;) ). We chose to do a superman thing because our mom is truly a SUPER WOMAN!!! I know what your thinking...sounds like a little boys birthday party...but it definitely was not! It was so cute and classy and most of all my mom LOVED it!!! We invited old friends, new friends, neighbors, family, all the people that have made a special impact on our mom. She loved seeing everybody and was definitely surprised to see me there since we are leaving back there tomorrow for Thanksgiving. I am SOOOO glad that I was able to go though because it meant so much to her and I wouldn't have missed it for the world! My mom is truly the BEST!!!

So here are some fun pics of the party and all the cuteness!!!
This was right when you walk in. We did it at a church as you can tell because we had too many people to fit in a house and renting somewhere was super expensive. But after it was all decorated it was still AMAZING!
LOTS & LOTS of pictures of my mom everywhere! So fun!

My aunt and cousin put together a slide show of pictures and music of my mom.

The food table! Yummy food! (Not sure what I am doing in this pic)

One of the cute tables. The pens were party favors for the guests to take home. Such a cute and fun idea.
The boxes were to put memories of my mom that people wrote down in.

Her amazing cake!! It doesn't even look real! It was dang good too!

Don't those chandeliers rock! Annie you are amazing!!!

The best part of it mom's face!! Her friend Fran was in town staying with her and she thought she was going to lunch and pedicure. We had the relief society president call her and ask her to stop by the Church to pick something up for her. Worked out great although she came a few minutes early. Fran tried her best to hold her off...but there is no stopping this superwoman!!

Putting her superwoman apron on her!

Birthday girl!!!

My cute dad serving cake. I think he enjoyed it just as much as my mom!!

    I also wanted to write and tell you that I've had you and your family on my mind constantly for the past few days. I know there is nothing I can do to help or make anything better. But I wanted to let you know that my prayers and thoughts and tears have been with you and yours. You have been so strong thru the trials and challenges that have come your way in the past, you are truly an inspiration to me. If there is anything I can do for you please let me know. Sherri
