My 75th Birthday...OOO, I am sooo OLDEN

Hi, Everyone.... 
My birthday photos just didn't turn out very good and then, after I uploaded them to my desk top, my computer BROKE... Glad to say it was nothing serious but it has taken me awhile to get to my photos.

My sweet girl, STACY, made my birthday cake and this is it, baking in her oven.

RUM CAKE that is to die for.
Much MUCH better than the one that I bought awhile back at BIG LOTS.
An entirely different type cake.





 My handsome son*in*law, JENT, taking the cake out of the bundt pan....
 PERFECT....

The photos I made of STACY, making this awesome cake did NOT turn out...
so blurry and I have no idea WHY...
and the photo of our son, DAVID.....blurry

so, in case you have forgotten how GOOD LOOKING all my kids are...




They had a PURPLE 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TIARA for me to wear.... 

 It was sure a good thing that they didn't try to put 75 candles on that cake...

what they had made nearly a 
BONFIRE...
hahhhaaa...
such fun...
I do love my family. 

We also had homemade chili and all the trimmings...
 Deeds, with the olden, tiara-wearin' MEMAW
on her New Year's Eve birthday.

P.S. I made my wish and blew out ALL the candles....
