Grandma's Birthday Party

My grandmother is the sweetest, caring, and most christian woman I know.  I strive to be like her someday.   She and I are so close and I usually go see her or spend a night on the weekends I am home from Valdosta.
On March 6th, my Grandma (as her grandchildren call her) turned 83. She had a terrible fall and stroke in the fall of this past year.  She hasn't been herself and I'm scared she never will be again.  So, I dedcided to give her a birthday party, one I hoped would mean a lot to her.  I had someone bake a cake, got together finger foods, drinks, and paper products.  I invited over her close friends to join us for dinner, cake, and cards.  It was so fun and I was so happy to put a smile on her face. 
She deserves the world and I hope my little party made her happy.

The spread!

We had pigs in a blanket, strawberries,  chips and dip, pimento cheese and chicken salad sadwiches, and chinese chicken salad from M&T.  Lina Jones baked a cake from scratch.  It was sooo good!
