Cynthia Kay's Big Day

My mama's friend, Mrs. Ann, and Cynthia Kay--the birthday girl

Saturday was a busy day for me. I had been trying to plan for my mama’s birthday for a few weeks now…but as always, there are the finishing touches that seem to mount on the day of. I had decided that we would do finger foods. That always sounds good in theory, when in reality, a person would be a whole lot better off just buying pizza. Haha.

The menu was cheese ball, hot dogs wrapped in bacon, meatballs, spinach dip, nachos, and three different types of bar cookies (dixies, white chip lemon bars, and double fudge fantasy bars). It seems like there were several other things…but I’m drawing a blank. The thing about it was, I waited until Saturday to really start cooking. I felt like I was up the river, without a paddle, with a hole in my boat. But, never fear, super girl kicked in at about 11 a.m. and all the work got finished.

The party-goers

The party-goers that thought they could escape this photographer by congregating outside.

We had a really good turn out and mom really seemed to enjoy herself…which was by far the best part.

Cynthia Kay's red wig (see Taryn eyeing it??)

The first gift she opened was a red-ish wig from Aunt Meryl. The girls, Taryn and Rachel, loved it. My uncle yelled out “She looks like Esther from Sanford and Son!” We did get some funny pics of mom in her red wig.

Mom loved her party, and we all got to catch up with people that we hadn’t seen in a while. It was so nice. I’m so glad that mom had a special birthday :)

Taryn loved the wig :)


  1. You are such a good daughter and I'm sure the party (and food) were great. Love the wig too!

  2. Esther is looking good in her red wig! Very Stylish!!! What a great party, I know you knocked yourself out, but it looks like everything turned out great!!!
