Happy 80th Birthday, Grandmother!!!

My beloved grandmother turned 80 YEARS YOUNG yesterday (that's her on the right with her "baby sister"), and the family threw a little party/family reunion for her in north Mississippi this past weekend to celebrate the occasion... She was born there and a good many of her relatives -- old and young -- still live there.

My cousin and her boys also came from Georgia and little Matthew was in quite the celebratory mood all day long, carrying around his Bud Light bottle. And folks, he didn't just hold the bottle for a few minutes -- he literally carried it around for hours (plus, he's a sloppy drunk, spilling it all over himself, as you can see in the shot below)! What can we say, in this family, we start 'em young!
Family, friends, BBQ ribs, chicken, beer, and all the desserts you could imagine -- good times, good times!!! You only turn 80 once, right? Happy Birthday, Grandmother!!!

Awww, thanks! No one ever thinks she is as old as she is -- and she says she doesn't feel it either, that there are so many things she still wants to do... My grandmother is arguably my favorite person in the whole entire world.... can you tell? I LOVE her!!!
