29+29+2 party

Our dear sweet friend Marcella recently had her 60th (oops...29+29+2) birthday party. She is an amazing woman this one. She plays the piano and organ at our church as well as our sister church, and she is very active in the community, all the while holding a full time job! I have never heard a cross word out of this woman's mouth...she is an inspiration to me, that is for sure.

The party was held outside, and even though the weather forecast called for rain, it was an absolutely beautiful night. The temperature was cool, the breeze was blowing and the band was amazing. The gifts started keep in mind the invitation said NO GIFTS... What a nice idea...having everyone sign the guest book so she can always remember her special party and who was there.
Cute, cute idea for the cakes!
