We had a great time Friday, 1/30 (sorry I’m a little late) at Grandma’s birthday dinner.
It was small (even though we have a HUGE family), but made it easier to talk to the ones who were there. There was even some family that showed up who Grandma hadn’t seen for many many years, so that was a great surprise for her. I didn’t take TOO many pictures, but here are some that I did take, (which aren’t edited or even that great).
Grandma’s beautiful cake. It is peach and brown. Grandma’s favorite color is peach.
Leah (my Sister) made this cake. . .she surely gets her talent from Mom! 🙂
The part of the family that we haven’t seen in a long time. . .I forget how they are related, but I know they are part of the Waplehorst family (Grandma’s maiden name). They even have a park in St. Charles named after the family name.
Mitch and Michael – laughing because they’re saying “Where’s the pants?”
They have always been real close cousins, because they are only a few weeks apart.
So, the joke is, when they were younger (about 4 or so), my Mom painted them matching airplane sweatshirts for Christmas, and when Mitch opened his up, he screamed “Where’s the pants????”
We missed a lot of the family that weren’t able to show up, but we still had a great time, and so did Grandma (which is all that matters).
