Granny's 80th Birthday

Mawmaw's side of the family gathered at T.J. Ribs this past Saturday to celebrate Granny's 80th birthday. Stella was super excited because the event combined two of her favorite things: birthdays and ribs.  Stella really loves ribs. Because our party was so large, the waiters brought out the side items first. Stella was happily eating her fries until Pawpaw handed her this bite. After her first taste of the ribs, she said, "I don't want this plate anymore," and pushed her fries aside so she could get down to business...



Seriously, Stella even gnawed a few right off the bone.  Later, Grannie got a kick out of how excited the sight of cake made Stella...



Grannie enjoyed her cake, too!


Although I'm not sure if she enjoyed it as much as Stella did...


Stella's first piece of cake wasn't nearly enough...



Mawmaw was eventually able to coax her down from the table, if not from her sugar high...


After enjoying the cake, most of the party goers gathered for a picture with Granny...


Granny with 3 of her children (Uncle Dub wasn't able to make it this year)...


Four generations of this family...and a french fry.  Hey, we do whatever we need to in order to get those sweet smiles from Stella.  We're not above a little food bribery.  If you could see Damon's hand, he's actually holding an entire rack of ribs...


Granny's 80th Birthday Celebration was a great time for the whole family!  Happy Birthday, Granny!
