It's not often one attends a 100th birthday party, much less one with such a sassy lady! My Great-Great Aunt turned 100 on March 12th 2011, I along with lots of family celebrated this day with her. I wanted to share this exciting day with all of you, too! Plus I'm sure my family that frequents my blog might like to see some of the photos I took! Check back later today for a sneak peak of my unexpected kitchen remodel! Hopefully the carpentry will be completed today, and all will be left is paint and getting things back to normal!
Here she is, our queen for the day at her coronation of her 100th birthday with a hat proper for the upcoming royal wedding! Even I'm stuck on William and Kate! After all we are distant cousins, that is William and Harry, with Queen Mary being our mutual ancestor.
She was so happy to see us all. It's not often we can all get together like that! Most of us live in southeastern VA, whereas she lives in Lynchburg! That's quite a hike. Lynchburg, VA is home to Liberty University, my almost alma mater. I say almost because I still haven't graduated.
I love the party hat she wore!
Here she is unwrapping gifts--check out the turquoise gator skin purse she received! In the photo with her are her niece and great-niece.
It looks to me she really likes her new sweater! I hope we all look this good if we make it to 100!
Check back later today for a preview of renovation photos of my kitchen! I'll have the after photos up soon. It has to get finished first!
