The 100th Birthday Party

What a party!!!

Nonni turned 100 on Thursday - we had the party last night at the local Italian hall and it was wonderful.  We had a four piece band, about 90 people, all of her children, grandchildren and all but one great grandchild who was away at college.....People came from as far as Indiana.

 Dancing at her 100th!!

 Everyone dancing with her!!!

Everyone enjoyed her dancing.  She got up three times to dance, when she liked the music!!!!  It was a great party!!!  So much food and good times.....

I thought about it a little.  How many times in a person's life to they get to attend a 100th birthday party grand celebration?  Not many.   We are all very lucky!!!

I'm heading over there now to see her and to eat some leftovers!!
