It’s not hard to imagine that Lorena Guillot is now an expert on birthdays.

With 107 of them under her belt, she’s successfully added another to her growing list over the weekend.

On Saturday, Mrs. Guillot turned 108 years young and marked the milestone with a gathering of friends and family.

Lorena, also known as “Ti-moon,” is a mother of two and a grandmother, great grandmother and great-great grandmother to many.

According to her granddaughter Emily Quibodeaux, Guillot was born in the Town of Ossun on January 19, 1911, and raised her own family in the small town of Bosco in Acadia Parish. She’s also a lifelong fan of the New York Yankees.

Last year, Guillot received a scrub board as a gift for her 107th birthday. You can view that video below.
