Steve, the kids and I drove in Wednesday before her party to visit with a couple of friends and handle any last minute party details. Since she didn't know we were in town, we had to steer clear of Peoria Heights. The night of the party, Aunt Sue, Uncle Jim, Brian's family and all of us went to the Country Club of Peoria to greet the guests.
About 65 people attended her party, and though she suspected something was going on when she came down the steps....she didn't know how big it would be, nor did she know that we were all in town! She was thrilled to see all of her grandchildren, and then seeing her sister through the crowd topped off her night! She cried some, and enjoyed talking with all of her friends over the next 2 hours.
