A Birthday Brunch

On this chilly Sunday morning the whole family came together to celebrate my mother's birthday. Brunch, it turns out, is not only a relatively economical way to throw a party for 20 people, but it also falls at a pretty convenient time of the day. So those who needed to study, play lacrosse, go to their Lego meet or walk the dog ~ could still fit it all in after birthday waffles and fruit salad.

Over the years I have always tried to get a group family shot at gatherings. This one is funny because the only one who is paying attention to me standing on a folding chair in front of them to get a good angle is my own son, Ronan. That's funny.

My mother found some of my photo albums that have been in her basement for 30 years! A little moldy - but they still held enough treasures of forgotten moments, funny clothing and old prom photos for us all to enjoy.

The easiest birthday cake I never had to make. This is a 3-tiered GIGANTIC coffee roll birthday cake (well, I put it together, stack, stack, stack) from Kane's Donuts in Saugus. Plug, plug. They are awesome. Have you been? It'll just make you happy when you go. Happy Birthday Grandbabs!
