I am also grateful for my MIL throwing birthday parties for my girls. Neither Q nor I would throw parties for the girls without her pitching in to do this for them so often. It is even harder on her because it seems there are some difficult family dynamics that come into play with every gathering. Here are some of the wonderful pics from the party.

The nerdlet swinging a balloon in a contraption she made.
The altered birthday cake. They made a super boring cake and we had to spice it up.
My oh-so-cute mom and me.
