It's been pretty busy around here lately. I had a "surprise" 50th birthday party for Jim over the weekend. Jim said he had a few hints. I guess I'm not really good at keeping secrets. I did put 50 candles on the cake too. His birthday is the 20th but I had the party on the weekend so that the kids could come. We had lots of food and cooked out.
My dil made the cake. She really should go into business making cakes.
The grand kids watched grandpa open up his cards and gifts. These two boys ran and had fun the whole evening outside. I'm sure they slept good that night.
Here are the two newest grand babies.
Chance on the left and Heidi on the right.
I finally got a pic of the three girls. I did get a shot of all of us girls together but it really didn't come out too well and a few of them would be mad at me for life if I posted it.
What a fun weekend we had and now we are babysitting one of our granddaughters for a few days. Her mom and dad flew to Texas to look for a house to rent. Jason graduates from NIU early May and Jim and I will be helping them move down there. I can't wait to see what Texas is like.
I have to show you a photo of a great-niece who is going to be a flower girl in her Aunties wedding. My niece said she tried on a flower girl dress and said "I'm a princess". I was able to get a photo of her, tho barely, she's pretty shy. I saw her at a baby shower I went to on Saturday for a dear long-time family friend.
I hope you all have been doing well. I couldn't believe it's been almost a week since I posted last. Life just has taken some turns and it has gotten just down right busy.
You all have a wonderful Monday!
