Mom’s 95th birthday celebration

David and I hosted a 9-course seafood dinner party in honor of my mother’s 95th birthday Sunday night at Hee-Hing Chinese Restaurant in Honolulu. There were 19 of us, consisting of the sisters and their families, seated at two tables.


This is my mother, the guest of honor.


This is my table: Clockwise, starting with Mom at the bottom, Bert, Lisa, Grant holding sleeping Julia, Maria holding sleeping Rylan, and David. I am missing from the picture, because I am the photographer.


Second table: Clockwise, starting with Nedra at the bottom, Pat, Sylvia, Pete, Travis, Shanna, Asia, and Paul. Missing are Charles and Toni, who came later.

Delicious cuisine, beautiful cake, and wonderful company! It’s always nice to gather together as a family. I am just so glad Mom was healthy enough to attend her 95th birthday celebration!

    Your mom really looks fabulous, Gigi! Since she looked like you when she was young, you are fortunate that you might look like her when you’re older. Good genes! You guys really threw a fabulous party with a gorgeous cake.
