Happy 60th Birthday Kathy

We are very blessed to have Kathy/mom in our life and even more blessed to see her everyday. It was a fun honor to celebrate her birthday last Sunday, August 10th. The kids got together and organized Sunday dinner which included yummy Barbacoa pork burritos with all the good fixin's and a delicious chocolate cake with fudge frosting. The group was a little small as Corey left that afternoon to Seattle (hence me writing the post), Cami and Matt who are still out East and Curtis and Brittany were in the hospital welcoming Lexi into the world.

We started the party with telling Kathy what we love and appreciate about her (thanks Chris for the idea), had a good cry and then ate dinner. We had the house decorated with yellow roses, thinking they were Kathy's favorite but oops her favorite are actually pink. I think we will remember that from now on. We also had found a bunch of pictures that we hung up all focused on Kathy throughout her life. We had some good laughs making fun of the fashionable outfits and long blonde wig.

We then enjoyed spending time together as a family and Kathy opened up her gifts. The gift theme was "Sassy Grandma". We purchased her a fun new outfit complete with fall coat and jewelry for her to wear on a fun night out. We all enjoyed hanging out and being together.

The evening was only dampened when Kathy needed to leave to go spend the night with her mother in law because her father was in the hospital. Thankfully he has returned home and we continue to pray for his strength and health.

The kids are currently working on putting together a book like we did for Cecil so they will having matching coffee table books. Hopefully she likes it. Surprise! we don't know if you knew this.

WE LOVE YOU KATHY. Thanks for being such a great mom. We love that you are here and can spend time with us. (love Maya)

Here are the rest of the pictures that Jill took.
