Happy Birthday, Grammy!

Yesterday was my beautiful mom's birthday! It's a big milestone birthday, the big 6-0!!! Can you believe it? She definitely doesn't look 60. So since it is such a milestone, my sister and I decided to throw her a surprise party! And boy was she surprised! My dad invited a few of their friends and we had a great time eating a yummy dinner and homemade ice cream - yum yum! Homemade ice cream is a Hansen family tradition! Here are some highlights of the night:

Right after everyone yelled "Surprise!" She had no idea about the party!

My parent's friends, hiding. We got 60 balloons for the special occasion!

Papa and Grammy

The grandkids helping grammy blow out the candles

Emmy enjoying the delicious homemade ice cream!

Who needs a spoon when you can use your fingers?

Mother and two pregnant daughters! (Yes, my sister is pregnant, too! She is due 3 weeks before me. How fun is that? Notice the baby bumps?)

Happy Birthday, Grammy! We love you so much and are so lucky that we have you in our lives! We get to see your beautiful, smiling face everyday. Thank you for all you do for us!!! Here's to another 60 years . . . :)
