Happy Birthday!!!!

It's always fun to actually be able to surprise someone for their birthday.  This year we were able to do just that to my mother-in-law, Ava.  Dec 4th was her 80th birthday and the family wanted to gather together to celebrate in her honor.  It was decided that the 3rd was a better time for all to be able to meet so, the Parker's gave her a call as we drove to her house, a little over 2 hours away and invited her to lunch.

The plan you see, was to take her to her favorite restaurant.  The surprise would be that the rest of the family would already be there.  It worked.  She was surprised.  ;o)   It was a great lunch at a seafood place called The Oyster Bar.  Unfortunately, not everyone could make it, but we still had a super crowd and it was an awesome time of fellowship.

Here are some pictures of the event:

Nee Nee's last words before we left, "If you were trying to surprise me you did it."  We love you Nee Nee.  Happy Birthday and God's blessings to you for another wonderful year.

God bless,
