Happy birthday to my mom! 67 years to be exact. I remember when I was a kid, I thought 60 somethings were so old. I can’t believe I am in my 40’s and my parents are in their 60’s. Like, where does the time go? I am old now too! -ha. We had my mom’s birthday party this past weekend and it was fun to have everyone together.

Mom's Birthday Party / Four Generations One Roof

We had a baked lasagna for dinner and chocolate cream pie. My mom has loved chocolate cream pie since I was a kid so every year for her birthday, that’s what her birthday “cake” is. -ha.

My grandfather told me he got remarried earlier that morning and showed me his ring? -haha. I looked at my grandmother and she just rolled her eyes and said, “I don’t know who the hell he thinks he married. It wasn’t me.” I busted out laughing and just walked away.

My grandfather winked at me as I looked at him.

Birthday celebrations are pretty simple around here. Sometimes we have extended family over and sometimes it’s just us four generations.

My mom loves Pier One Imports so needless to say, she got a few gift cards to go shopping for Christmas decorations.

I happened to catch my husband and grandfather wrestling and pushing each other. No clue what they were goofing off about. -ha.

The Murph Man (remember him?) is gigantic and we were getting ready to open the doors so we had him in his crate so he wouldn’t escape and he is like, “why am I in here and you are all out there?”

I have a post coming up about the amount he has grown in 5 short months. It’s crazy how big he is!

After the festivities were over and everyone was watching their Saturday night TV shows, my little man was drawing about a book he had just finished.

Love him to pieces :).

It seems like every month there is a birthday to celebrate but I guess with so many generations under one roof, that is bound to happen.

The next birthday celebration will be my step daughters who are turning 16 years old in a few days. Now that is craziest of them all. Time is speeding by like lightning speed.

  1. we have fewer family members birthdays to celebrate but with shared custody and now one off to college consolidating birthdays into quarterlies of the year seems to be the new standard. I can only imagine what your scheduling amounts to.
    It was good to see the pictures of your grandparents looking so good. a short time ago your grandfather did not look nearly as healthy and happy. it is always great to see your family especially in the midst of the chaos going on in our country and the world.

      Thank you Brenda! Yes, scheduling is kind of crazy because we try to give each person their “own” party and cake so to speak. Knock on wood, my grandfather is feeling pretty good. Besides the mind failure, he has lost some weight (which was a good thing) . It’s so much better for his diabetes when he isn’t so heavy. Thanks for stopping by!

    It’s so beautiful to see how you are all making this arrangement work! I know it’s got to be hard but so much good as well! Blessings to your family!

  3. Your Granny is bust up funny!! Be Blessed!! Happy birthday to Mom!!

    Hi Jessica, it is wonderful to be with family, cake and lasagna! Your mom looks great. “I hope your mom had a very happy and BLESSED birthday”! We are a large family also and during the month of August we have seven birthdays and one anniversary. I am the only born in September. We always have fun and food when we get together along with so much laughter. TFS.
