I may be late, but not less sincere! Tell baby Gus, that we think HER can do anything, too!!!! I see how loved you are. Wrap that around you when it gets cold in a few week. Glad to see our little honorary Cutie got to come, too! Love you sweet Toogie! You are truly blessed.
very belated happy birthday Toogie, love your photos!
Thank you very much! Have a good day!
Happy belated birthday! You have a beautiful family! What a blessing to see them for your birthday!
Thank you, they all enjoy each others company too.
Happy Birthday Toogie, enjoy your day! The best gift is time together, hugs Maria
I agree 100% Maria. Thank you!
Happy Birthday enjoy your day!! Looks like you already are... Nice pictures of all!!
Thank you , we all did, I do believe.
I hope you have a great time on your Birthday.
It was nice, thank you
great pic's !! enjoy !!
Thank you, we did.
Happy Birthday Toogie! What a wonderful present to have your family all show up and such a tribute from your daughter. I know you won't, but after all that, I think you could sit back a relax for a bit.
Taking it easy is all I have been doing. Having almost all the kids here was so nice. Love listening to their conversations and watching all of them play, young and old. Emily is so tiny she can get on the floor and scoot around like the kids AND get up -lol- I can only remember being agile like that.
I understand, my knees just won't do that either.
Happy birthday, I am glad you had a great day with your wonderful family! This "Gram" is something special! And she special to all Cuties too!
How sweet of you! Thank you, I was glad to hear they were coming.
Happy birthday. Looks like you had a grand day. Doesn't get any better than to have all the kids home at once. Blessed!
So true! Thank you! Just knowing all day that I would see them together again just made my day!
How wonderful for you Toogie and I know you had a great day celebrating, because you were surrounded by all your kin, well almost all. Such a glowing testament to you from your family too. I can't believe how tall Grayson is standing next to Ashley. It was so lovely to see Avery there too, I bet Ashley and family are thrilled to have her home. All the photos are gorgeous. Such a beautiful family you have, love always Chris
P.S. I do hope that your back is improving, keep well and safe.
I hope my back will do better now. I am so ready to feel better, thank you.
Grayson is 6 feet 4inches but Ashley’s always been pretty tall herself. Funny you should mention this because when we were viewing the photos Ashley said it looked like we were arranged according to height-lol- my hubby has never been tall but age and disc messed up has shrunken him, at least in height-lol Nora is getting so tall for 8 years old. I hope she doesn’t get as tall as Grayson or his parents though. Dalton is Marsha’s son and he is tall too but oh so thin.
Happy belated birthday. I always enjoy your posts, but this one is so very special. You have a really lovely family.
Thank you! How kind of you to say.
Toogie, this just brings tears to my eyes! Every word is so true. You couldn't do anything more in your life... you have reached the goal of every woman/ mom/ grandmother. You are blessed
I do thank God for my family. Thank you too, for your words.
Card from Nora
What a wonderful birthday you had. Such beautiful memories to treasure. Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos. Hugs and a belated Happy Birthday
Thank you Shirley and treasure them ,I do.
Sorry I put my post in the wrong place. Maybe you can edit and post the cards again where they should be. Hugs
That’s fine, no problem Shirley. I do the same sometimes.❤️
I am blaming having to use my IPad. Still waiting for my laptop to be repaired. Hugs
What a loving testament to someone who is obviously a very loved Mum, Grandma and Great Grandma, titles you have earnt and are blessed to hold. I know the Lord will continue to bless and your family you as you do his work each day. Happy Birthday and Many Blessings Toogie. Lynne in OZ
What a sweet comment Lynne, thank you. Even though you know you are loved it’s good when someone does something special just for you. Nora drew and colored me a card. She was crying and wouldn’t come in because on the way over her card got bent or folded. I had to go out and talk to her and let her know how special it was to me because she had included my favorite color on the front and told me how much she loved me. I displayed it with all my bought cards I received to let her know it meant just as much.
Your birthday has warmed my heart. You are do blessed. To many more...
Thank you Christine!
Happy Belated Birthday, Toogie! What a wonderful gift - having your kiddos and theirs all over to celebrate! The pictures and sweet words tell what a wonderful mother and Gram you are! What a blessing! Hugs, Laura
Laura, I just looked back at the video of when they brought the cake and I had to laugh again. While I was making a wish Gus ran up and blew the candles out- I just looked at him and he grabbed me around the neck and said’ I love you Gram!’ Yes, love makes everything alright Gus!-lol
Thanks Laura I am truly thankful for my family.
Happy belated birthday. What a wonderful day you had and what a wonderful family!
Thank you! What can I say, I am so blessed & thankful.
Happy Belated Birthday to you. Hope you had a good one.
Thank you, just having the family together was so nice.
Happy Birthday, sorry I am late!
Thank you, it’s fine, you didn’t know.
Happy birthday lovely lady :-)
Oh how sweet of you! Thank you!
My goodness. That is the way to celebrate a birthday. Happy belated Birthday Toogie. You have such a nice family that love you a lot. You are blessed.
Yes I am and ever so thankful for them! Thank you
By the way, just went to doctor so maybe back will be better soon.
Happy belated birthday, Toogie. And many more. Today is my hubby's 80th birthday, but our celebration will be this Saturday with friends and family down at our oldest daughter's house.
Such a beautiful family. Lots of love showing there.
Today would have been my momma’s only sister’s birthday. Aunt Olar has long been dead but she used to tease me that I was a day older than her. When I was really young, I couldn’t understand why she looked so old if I was a day older. When I grew up, I realized it was more difference than one day.-lol- Tell your hubby Happy Birthday 🎂! Enjoy his party Saturday!!! Thank you
A very happy belated birthday to you. What a great birthday gift too! You are a great mom, but I have to say you have raised great kids. Keep enjoying and celebrating. I say you get to celebrate all week. And thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures.
Thank you so sweet of you, I am celebrating today because I got an injection for my back and meds to hopeful get it better again. Ashley suppose to send me the other photos.
What a nice birthday surprise... looks like a great time was had by all...
It was, thank you. We may not have any of your snowballs but we all enjoy being with each other.-lol
Happy Birthday looks like you had a nice time with your kids and the grandkids. Marian
Thank you Marian. It’s always so good to be with them all. It was just 22 of us. Missing were 4 grandsons, Ty, Mason, Dustin,Cameron and daughter in-law Tammy.
