We had a great family party yesterday for my sweet C/Gabbo/Dad!
Not all the family could be here but all except Marc (on the road) and Zach-in classes in Orlando, and Brian, in Orlando, were able to at least check in at some time during the day!
Sweet little Alli was stuck in traffic, leaving Orlando...and a trip that should have taken less than 2 hours ended up being more than 4! Yikes!! But she made it in time to see everyone.
Tina was working and didn't get to come until after most everyone had left for home...:( She had this nice gift for her dad!
We were happy Tam and Terry were able to come up from Orlando-especially considerate, since Terry is only home for a couple days.
(He's a trucker-as is Marc, my other Son-in-law)
Their son Zach will be up today since he couldn't make it yesterday because of his classes.
(Can't wait to hug that boy again!-He gives GREAT hugs!!) :)
Dan was off yesterday and has today off also. I'm happy for that as he'll get to visit with Zach and Alli today! :)
Here he is showing his aunt Tammy his new
Chris had to sleep, preparing for his upcoming three -12 hour days at the hospital, but we saw him for a bit before he left for his job in Gainesville. Maryjoy was here- of course! She made the cake for Dad! Yummy chocolate!
My sis and B-I-L were here but didn't want to be in pictures... :) I'll honor all requests in that...
(...but I look at it this way...If I had to wait for a good picture of myself...no one would have the slightest idea of what I look like....HAHA-
maybe a good idea-that! )
I might be pictured in the 'mind's eye' as some gorgeous knock-out type...instead of the sweet little old lady I am in Real Life! :)
Hey- but THIS is the being God created...this is where He wants me to be at this point in my life-so I go with that....and let the chips fall as they may. Just a matter of, "What you see is what you get,folks!" ;)
Everyone enjoyed the day and we had some really good food! I made Rotisserie Lemon chicken this time- with my usual 'World Famous' potato salad and cole slaw-and my yummy baked beans cooked with honey mustard BBQ sauce and bacon on top!
More pics of our folks-food and fun!
His gift from Tam and Terry
