She Doesn't Look a Day Over 90

She was born two months before the Titanic sank. She has lived through 18 presidents.
She, ladies and gentlemen, is my great-grandmother - Alice Bertha Grunewaldt.
Since she was born on leap day, she technically doesn't get a birthday this year. However, yesterday we celebrated her 101st birthday.

What an incredible lady - I'm so blessed to have this amazing woman in my life.

A must at any Dahlke/Maxwell get-together is card playing. Buck Yuker and 500 are the games of choice, but I'm a bigger fan of 500.
I was in charge of making the cake (post to come on that adventure...), which turned out ok.

All in all it was a great day of family, food, and card-playing fun.


  1. The cake looks amazing! The decorations are AWESOME! Happy birthday to Alice :)

    1. Thanks Natalie! I just couldn't resist the balloons - I thought they were hilarious :)
