Trick Or Treat

Halloween has had an added interest for 23 years now, my youngest son, Kurt was born October 31, 1985.  We celebrated his birthday tonight by going to Famous Dave's for a delicious dinner with Kurt , Alisha, her parents, Justin, Barbie , Aubrey and Brad and I.
Aubrey came as Cindy Lou Who from Dr. Seuss, Justin was The Grinch, Kurt was Dr. Seuss and then Barbie and Alisha were Thing 1 and Thing 2. As you can see, they had a great time and definitely got into the spirit of Halloween costumes.
Happy Birthday my son, just think, next year you and Alisha will have your own little one to dress in a costume.

65th Anniversary for my Mom and Dad

65th Anniversary

WOW!! Last night the family got together to celebrate our parents 65th Anniversary. What an amazing accomplishment and what a legacy this marriage has produced.  My parents were married at 17 and 19 years of age during WWII, they were two kids in love and they had both come from homes that had been broken by divorce.  Somehow, well, no with their faith in God  they have been a committed couple that served the Lord and brought their family up to know that God has a wonderful plan for our lives.
My parents have 5 children, 4 daughters and a son, they have 17 grandchildren , 19 great-grandchildren, 2 more great grandchildren on the way (that we know of at this point).
We celebrated with a dinner at Lorene's and an Anniversary cake. A photo book was made with pictures of each child, grandchild and great-grandchild so they could have a memory book with everyone's photo in one place.  It was an enjoyable evening of talking of the past and looking to the future. 
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!
