90th Birthday Celebration


Grandma Merlene turned 90 this week. So her husband, Don, had an open house party Saturday. She looked so sweet.   She got lots of flowers and everybody added to her scrapbook we made 10 years ago at her 80th birthday. Family came before us and after us, but these are the pics I got while I was there....


Grandma Merlene and my cute hubs...I made her some homemade bread...and boy!....it was a beautiful day ! 
This lady is amazing. She still gardens, bottles raspberry peach jam every year, works in the temple, and does genealogy like nobody else I know. She has hosted hundreds of dinners for our family over the years.
Here are just a few of her great grandchildren...my cute daughter-in-law Wendy and Josie....

Two more here..Tavin and Meg.....aren't they sweet?

My 3 kids and grandpa Don....

She definitely does NOT look like 90!  She used to ski circles around me at age 79
when her doctor told her to lay off the snow skiing.  She is amazing. 

My hubs and his bro and dad....and Grandma Merlene
She was the President of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers for over 5 years, and did museum work and held dinner parties many times during the year for the ladies. Just a few years ago she let go of her duties.

She ran a paper company when she was younger. She was President or CEO or something very important. She was also a Relief Society President AND a Seminary Teacher. She is always so nice, and always so photogenic! 


My hub's sis and  cute daughter and  her hubs....

Some of the yummy evil foods put out which we could NOT resist...cheesecake, red velvet cake, carrot cake,  turtles and cookies of all sorts....and chocolate covered almonds and punch...we were so bad, we just HAD to fill up on that candy! 

Cute granddaughter Becky...she's just finished her teaching credential and got a job before she was even done!
