MoMo er 90!! Part 2

I sondags, d. 13 april, var MoMo´s fødselsdag selskab! Flere end 50 mennesker (mest var Cajuns!!) kom at deltage i denne speciel dag med hende. Det var en vigtig dag, fordi en 90 år fødselsdag er en UTROLIG ting.... men vi ved det er vigtig fordi MoMo havde på øreringer!

Vi spurgte hende hvis hun havde på øreringer fordi hende "kæreste" kommer til selskabet....men hun svarer ikke! Enhver klædede sig på flot tøj og var klar at gå!

Last Sunday, April 13 was Momo´s birthday party! More than 50 people (most were Cajuns!!) came to share in this special day with her. It was an important day because a 90 year birthday is an incredible thing....but we knew it was an important day because Mo was wearing earrings! We asked her if she was wearing earrings because her "boyfriend" was coming to the party....but she did not answer! Everyone put on their nice clothes and were ready to go!

Vi var den sidste at ankomme fordi vi havde MoMo med os.... kl. 2.00, Jess kørte os i Mo´s bil til selskabet....og morskabet begyndte da vi ankommede!

We were the last to arrive because we had MoMo with us....at 2pm Jess drove us in Mo´s car to the party...and the fun began when we arrived!

Det var meget flot i selskabet....med fotografier af Mo, hendes mand PaPa Fontenot, hendes fire børnerne og der familier.

It was lovely at the party...with photos of Mo, her husband PaPa Fontenot, her four children and their families.

Jennifer og jeg så tanter og onkeler og kusiner og familie venner vi havde ikke så for mange år. Enhver kunne ikke tro hvor smuk Jess var....de huskede hende ligesom en lille pige! Også enhver vidste jeg flytter til Danmark og spurgte mig mange sporgsmåler om det. Vi besøgte mens far arbejede!




Jennifer and I saw aunts and uncles and cousins and family friends we had not seen for many years. Everyone could not believe how beautiful Jess was...they remembered her as a little girl! Also, everyone knew I am moving to Denmark and asked me many questions about it. We visited while Dad worked!

Det var godt at se MoMo med hendes to søstrene....
It was good to see MoMo with her two sisters...

.....med hendes tre dattere, en søn, en svigerdatter og svigersøn....
....with her three daughters, one son, one daughter in law and one son in law....

....med hendes barnebørner.....
....with her grandchildren.....

....og med hendes barnebarnbørner.....
.....and with her great grandchildren....

Vi sang "Tillykke med Fødselsdag" til MoMo og vi sang også til min mor fordi hendes fødselsdag er en dag efter Mo´s. Dengang det var tid at åben gaver! Men hvad du giver til en dame hvem er 90??

We sang "Happy Birthday" to MoMo and we also sang to my mom because her birthday is one day after Mo´s. Then it was time to open presents! But what do you give to a lady who is 90??

Hun elskede vores gave.... et billede af Jess, Michael og Campbell med budskaber det skrev til hendes, men jeg tror hun elskede hendes gave fra hendes "kæreste" bedste.... penge fra den casino hun kører til to timer hver uge!!

She loved our gift.....a picture of Jess, Michael and Campbell with messages they wrote to her, but I think she loved her gift from her "boyfriend" best....chips from the casino she drives to twice a week!!

Den dag var meget god.....med familie, venner, hukommelser, en tale fra Hr. Nolan, min morfars bedste ven, og en speciel dame vi alle elsker meget!

The day was great....filled with family, friends, memories, a speech from Mr. Nolan, my PaPa´s best friend, and a special lady we all love so much!

Your family goes to the American Legion; my family goes to the VFW. Small world. Looks like everyone had a great time, though! Was that buttercream frosting???
