Rosalie’s 75th Birthday Party – February 10, 2013

Mom & Dad

Tom and Rosalie Messner at Rosalie’s 75th Birthday Party, at her daughter Sheri’s house. Approx 60-70 people showed up to enjoy the open house, food catered by Olive Garden, Lasagna, 5 Cheese Ziti, Cheese Ravioli, Fettuccine Alfredo, and of course salad and bread sticks. Jaz’s cake was excellent! Everyone seemed to have a good time, and commented on how good Mom looked. The only ones missing were her sister Sherry, and her brother Art. We missed you guys.  The weather semi cooperated, it did not rain, and it was fairly warm, (mid 50’s). Tom brought his outdoor stainless steel tower propane heater and it was quite toasty out on the patio. As always I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife’s family. Her brother Mark and I were best friends in high school, and the family joke is that I married his sister to become part of his family. I had a chance to sit out back and talk in depth with Mark, and Jeff. I think we were able to solve many, if not all of the worlds problems.  The Open House was from 1-4 pm, and the party broke up around 9pm. I shot 100+ pictures during the party. It seems like everyone enjoyed the day. The entire gallery (115 pictures) can be seen here.
