My lovely MIL is 70 today, how time flies..... I remember when she was 50 we sneaked into her house (with my FIL's knowledge!) and organised a surprise party. John kept Kathleen out shopping all day, and I remember her saying how surprised she was that he was so keen to shop!!!
I won't forget her face as she came into the house to see her 4 sons, and wives/girlfriends with the food all organised ready for her party.
Kathleen and John live in Derry, so we won't get to see them today, but as it is a special birthday we all made cards for her.
Here's mine, made with a set of Heidi Grace papers I'd had for a while, the window shutters hide a little secret!
I'll post pictures of the children's cards when I get time to upload the photos I took.
