Laissez les Bon temps roule!

Well it was a BIG weekend around here...not only was last week Valentine's day, but it was one of our very favorite Valentine's very special birthday!  We suprised my mom with a weekend in NOLA to celebrate!  It was so much fun to get away and to celebrate my mom.  We are truly blessed to have her in our lives and it was such a gift to be able to spend last weekend with her.  We were able to go in her old house and see her old school, we ate like it was our last meal (all weekend) and we got to just walk around and take in everything NOLA, hand grenades and hurricanes included...(it wouldnt be a trip to NOLA if we didn't!)
Anyway, Saturday night we had a party at Galatoires with cake and toasts, and Sunday brunch at Court of Two Sisters before we all packed up and came home!  Here is the clue about her big birthday and some pictures from our BIG weekend!  Happy Birthday Ceec! You are the BEST!

In 1953, Peter Pan was #1 on the big screen...
and traffic lights became 3 colors, red, yellow and green.

In 1953 Elvis recorded for the very first time,
And Dwight D. Eisenhower was the president in line.

The first color tv was for sale-so people headed to the bank,
Milk was .94 cents a gallon and they put .29 cent gas in car tanks!~

A mere .75 cents was minimum wage,
and that year on Valentine’s day history turned yet another page.

In the Big Easy our CC made her debut
Now 60 years later we are so blessed because God gave us YOU!

By now you have voted in 10 elections, which is quite a few I must say-
You have been driving for 44 years,
and if its north or south you can find your way.

You’ve been married for over 3 decades and had 2 kiddos of your own
And to your grandbabies, well, you are the best thing they know.

You’ve meant so much to so many folks...
We think you are so very special you deserve a Mardi Gras float

There’s no better reason to celebrate than your birthday...
And our float plan fell through, so out with plan A.

Instead let’s go back to where it all began...

We’ll see you in NOLA, 
back in the Big Easy...

Happy 60th Birthday 
to the world’s greatest 

This is a picture of 3 generations in my mom's room she had when she was little!

Lots of special pictures and memories from this trip!  I will have to share the toasts on my next post-such fun celebrating my sweet Mom!!!
