Weekend Fun!

This weekend we celebrated my Dad's 84th birthday. All of his kids and most of his grandkids and great grandkids were there. The best gift we could have gave him was just everyone getting together, he had the best time. We had pulled pork barbecue, coleslaw and deviled eggs and let's not forget the cake that Maddie and my niece Allison made for the party. It was a fun family time and here's a few photos.

Here's the birthday boy opening up a card with my brother in law Bill sitting next to him.

This is Collin, my great nephew. He has a twin sister named Casey but Collin is a little monkey, he has a gold medal in speed crawling. LOL

Here's another photo of my Dad just enjoying himself.

My little granddaughter Sas (aka Sydney)and the youngest great grandchild until my niece has another baby in April and then my Dad will have seven great grand babies!

Maddie and Sas(aka Sydney) before the party started. Maddie was very excited about having a party.

Right before we started singing Happy Birthday! We all are blessed with a great Dad, Grandfather and Great Grandfather! Hope you had a wonderful day Dad!

I had to add this last photo because while everyone was over my house for the party my niece Allison helped me with this photo. I know how to do one thing in photoshop and that is to make one item colored and the rest black and white. I took this photo last week of my grandson Cameron and noticed how gorgeous his blue eyes were but didn't know how to do two items colored and the rest black and white in photoshop. Thanks to my sweet niece Allison for fixing this for me. I have not done anything to make his eyes more blue(wouldn't even know where to start), these are his natural Paul Newman to die for eyes. Click on the photo to see it better. So do you think he might be a little heartbreaker someday? LOL That's it for me today, hope everyone is doing well. Happy Tuesday!

What great pictures Joan. My MIL is the same way, she has all the stuff she needs and what she most enjoys is time with her family. How wonderful for your dad to have you all there.

Aawww, what a sweet birthday party! Best wishes to your dad!

Cameron sure has the baby blues, LOL. I'm going to have to learn that trick in photoshop. I don't know that one yet.
