Family Party!

 We had our party for my side of the family this past weekend.  We weren't sure we would be having a party this year as my Dad was fighting  Covid, but in the last week he has improved immensely and we were thrilled to gather as a family again.

We had the party at our church, so there was room to spread out.

My sister Terri, always the crazy one, showed up ready for a party!


Alaina and Ruby were excited to give Great Grandpa and Grandma some Christmas Cards they made.


Dad and Ann sitting by the fireplace.


Ruby helping Grandpa with a gift.


The girls were excited to open a present too.

Laura, Aaron and family with G Grandpa and Grandma.  Heather and Andrew weren't there because they are in quarantine, expecting the baby soon.


Ruby, G Grandpa and Alaina.

It was wonderful to be together again, and we were all thankful that Dad is doing well, and Ann never got it.

In other news, Heather is also doing well, she is at 36 weeks on Monday and they would like her at 37 weeks, so hopefully there will be a baby soon.

So pleased you could have that party. Such fun to be together. The girls are growing up so quickly, but exciting the thought of another little babe soon. Prayers for Heather.

What a wonderful blessing that you were able to gather as a family and celebrate the season!! I am so happy for all of you!! The girls are growing up so fast and are both just beautiful young ladies. I can see that Alaina takes more after her mom and Ruby more after her dad. Such cuteness!! Your dad and Ann look great. Praise God he came through the Covid okay and Ann didn't get it. xo

Squueeeeee I am so excited about the baby! Your dad looks good, if a bit tired and I think he lost a few pounds. But hallelujah, the Lord brought him through. The girls look precious as usual. xoxo
