This Friday night we surprised Ellen with a birthday party! Unbeknownst to her all of her sisters traveled into town and the highlight of the evening was watching her be surprised one by one as they appeared! We ate, drank, and generally were merry. The evening included a slideshow as well as an acapella songs dedicated and performed by her sisters. Best birthday ever.
Happy Birthday Grant! We all gathered together at Hawaiian Falls this Monday to celebrate Grant’s 8th Birthday. Grandma and Papa came as well as some friends from school to help celebrate the occasion! Everyone had a great time swimming, sliding, splashing, and eating. Kim did a wonderful job planning and decorating for the event and we almost had the place to ourselves! No one, especially his parents, can believe it was already time to celebrate another birthday.
Happy Birthday! We all got together to help Grandma celebrate her birthday Sunday. It was a little early but Monday is no day to celebrate! We took a drive to the Dallas Arboretum and spent the day taking in the sites and enjoying family time. There was a huge kids area of activities for Grant with a climbing treehouse to top it off. Grandma’s favorite flowers were on display EVERYWHERE. We all agreed we had never seen so many tulips in one place before. The weather was perfect and we capped of the day with some Uncle Julio’s. A perfect day to celebrate a wonderful woman!
Merry Christmas! We can’t believe it is that time of year again already! We all gathered at Ellen and Rayford’s to celebrate the season and have a wonderful feast. Some of us got up earlier than others (cough Grant cough) but the joy of the season enveloped us all. Here’s wishing for the best year for everyone…Ho Ho Ho!
Grant wrapped up his first year in school this Friday! He was so excited to start his summer break and we are so proud of all he accomplished! He is now a reader/author/editor, aspiring mathematician, and enjoys cultural studies. Mom and Dad couldn’t be more proud of him and for him!
