Happy 90th Birthday, Oma!

My extended family recently gathered to celebrate my Oma's 90th birthday. Oma is a very classy lady. She is a devoted and caring mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She is a wonderful hostess and a very good cook! She makes the best bread ever. Going to Oma's house is always a treat.

My Lovely Oma

Oma has 13 grandchildren. At her birthday party, we all read a poem that we had written for her. Poetry is not my thing, so I will not publish my poem here for all to read. However, I will admit that it was fun to read our poems together and see the smile on Oma's face.

After the grandchildren did their presentation, it was time for the great-grandchildren to perform. They sang a German song for Oma, and did a very nice job.

Oma's children each gave a toast to Oma, and of course we all sang happy birthday and had birthday cake.

Here are some more pictures from our weekend together.
