This past Saturday we celebrated Meemaw & PawPaw’s 60th birthday with a surprise party. Candy, my sis-in-law, came up with the wonderful idea of throwing a surprise party for both of them. Stuff like this is very much out of my comfort zone but since it is for my fabulous Mom & Dad….why not! It turned out fantastic! We invited them to meet us for dinner at a quaint little restaurant and then said we would come to our house afterwards and play cards. Little did they know that we had also asked their friends and family to join us in the surprise!
My parents are great gifts I cherish given to me by God. They have been supportive, caring, and loving throughout my entire life. They continue to be great examples of Christ’s love in their marriage together. I am blessed beyond measure.
Here are some pics of the evening!
Jean got Mom this glass. It is an inside joke. Years ago before Lil knew Mom & Dad she made a comment that Mom must be Dad’s trophy wife (2nd or 3rd wife) b/c she looks younger than Dad. In reality Mom is only a couple weeks younger. Lil really stuck her foot in her mouth and is reminded of it to this day…=) & Mom is Dad’s first and only wife might I add!! This was hilarious!
Christian made a great card for both of them. It had all the prices in ‘51 and today’s prices. Very clever idea and Mom and Dad loved it!

Of course a pic of my great kiddoes! The party was a great success and a wonderful way to celebrate two fantastic people! I am thankful to Candy, for the great idea and helping make it possible! Happy 60th Mom & Dad! I love you guys. I am thankful that God blessed me with two dedicated, loving, devoted, hard-working, Christian parents!
