Happy Birthday to Mom!

My Mom's birthday was actually on Friday the 6th being as our family has grown so much it's just much easier to do things on the weekend. Goodness the little family of what was once 6 has turned into 21 and I predict there will be further additions as time goes by.

We also celebrated Mom & Dad's anniversary a few days early being as it will be this coming Tuesday. Actually Mom and Dad tried to get married on Mom's birthday 47 years ago but back in those days men had to be 21 and Dad was only 20. Mom tried changing his driver's liscense but the court clerk I guess wasn't fooled. So off to Texas they went to my Grandma's so she could sign the papers allowing Dad to marry.....Glad she did!

All the cousins are enjoying each other's company with Grandpa Bob joining in the fun, too!

It was such a nice evening that the kids went outside to ride the bicycle carts and play while the bigger "kids" played checkers and a card game.

Here are the " Three Stooges" ooops I meant 3 wonderful sisters!

I just had to include this one of Sherry and her hubby! I never can get him to behave long enough to get a good picture. Got to love those knees!

And since it doesn't happen to often...a picture of me and my lil' Valentine.

Happy Trails....Ginger
