Mom’s 80th birthday party:  Life-sized twin was so much fun.  Dad didn’t know what to do with the two of her. And celebrating with family members made is that much more special!

We made our own “80th birthday candle”.

And 80 candles is a LOT!  We actually set off the smoke alarm!  But what a great party!
