This past weekend, my wonderful mother, Debbie (aka Debabe) turned 50! My mother means the world to me, she is one of my best friends and has been there for me during the ups and downs of my life, no matter how big of a brat I have been. To mark this milestone birthday of hers, we threw her a surprise party at Gwen's in Lisbon. Both of mom's sisters, Diane and Marsie made the trip as well as her brother Roger. Many of my cousins were able to attend and most of my dad's family as well as tons of friends from the area. Mom was absolutly speechless, she was bawling (good tears though!). I could not have asked for a better night for my mother and I am so grateful to everyone who braved the cold weather and made the drive, your presence meant the world to my whole family! Pictures from the post party will be coming, or you can check out my facebook page for all of them!
