The Experience

Callie is my step mother and recently had her 90th birthday. To honor her, we held a celebration at the Caid estancia in Tucson. To keep the gathering small, and per her request, only a small number of close family members and a very limited number of friends were invited.

The photos below are what we saw.

The reindeer arrived early for the party and in were full dress gear.

A view of the pool and the Pusch Ridge of the Santa Catalina Mountains from the backyard.

The pyracantha were in bloom in preparation for the party.

The sisters, Sandy and Susan, spent a ton of effort decorating the house in anticipation of the party.

A nice table arrangement.

The recently refurbished fireplace, nice adorned with Christmas figurines.

Multi-colored roses, one of the many gifts.

Good job! Got them all on the first try.

We all had a great time. It was good to get friends and family together for this special celebration. Congratulations Callie! And thanks for the party.
