Happy Birthday Grandma Darlene!


A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated my MIL Darlene's 83rd birthday.  We gathered at her house for a Mexican dinner and cake and ice cream.  It was a beautiful day outside, nearly 70*, and there were around 25 of us.  It was really a nice party.

Aunt Nona and Grandma Darlene visit with Sasha.

 Cary waits for more folks to arrive.

Jason and Isaiah decorate the cake.

Treavor is so cute.  He kept reminding us that he would be 16 in 17 days.  He passed his driving test with a 98!

JB, Shelly, Jason and Isaiah are 
talking about something important.

Troy, Tess and Tess's BFF line up for hugs.

The oldest and the youngest members of the clan ... 
Grandma Darlene and Baby James.

These cousins were having fun being silly.

Samantha and Jimmy share a spot.

 Beverly brings in the cake.

Grandma Darlene blows out the candles.

Cousins in the kitchen ... Holli, Treaver, Brittany, 
Ethan and Megan.

Ethan observes the others.

 James had just woken up from his nap. 
 He is four months old now.

Logen talks to his cousin who is hidden behind the roses that Jason bought his Great-Grandma with his own money.

All the great-grandkids went outside for a group picture.  The only ones missing on that side of the family that day were Jeffrey, CJ and Courtney.

Sasha had a great time too!

We'll be back with birthday #84 next year ... same bat channel!

What a bunch of handsome, lovely kids! Those great-grandchildren are amazing -- lucky to have such a big family.

Oh, thank you, Deb! They are, aren't they? We are lucky, we have huge families on both sides.

What a beautiful family you have, and what great genes. Happy belated birthday to Grandma Darlene, who doesn't look a day over 60!

I love family gatherings like this. My dad loves to brag about how many great-grandchildren he has but Grandma Darlene has him beat. (He has 11.)
