August 01 2010—On this day my mother in law turned 88 years old!!! She has a hearing aide, and has now help around the house, but she is still living on her own in her own home. Not bad for being 88. We had a small celebration with her niece and nephew and a good friend. We started the big day by going out for breakfast-yummy-a breakfast buffet with eggs, bacon, fresh rolls, cold cuts and fruit. In the afternoon we then had coffee and cake in her home. I remembered to take these pictures, unfortunately I can not tell you the name of the dishes. I do know they are about 40 years old. She still has the entire set. The cake is a chocolate cake that my husband made for her! The cut flowers that you see by each place setting were grown in Oma´s garden.
