Birthday Party

This past weekend we celebrated our great-uncle's 80th birthday with a family reunion and surprise party. Was he ever surprised! Everyone showed up at Sunday's church service and stayed for the brunch and festivities afterward. It was wonderful to see friends and family on Mom's side of the family -- and to let Uncle Duane know how special he is to us. 

We were responsible for designing and assembling the table decor. 

Our incredible Grandma with some of the amazingly yummy spread!

Charissa enjoyed playing with our cousin's son.

One generation shall praise Your works to another, 
And shall declare Your mighty acts.
Ps 145:4
