A Grand Party and Time with the Grands

I decided it was time to play a little catch up and start posting here on my blog again.  I have some finished  projects and have a lot in the works to share but I will stretch that out over the next week.

First off I want to share a few pictures from a Grand Party given for my husbands parents for their 50th
Wedding Anniversary by their children and children's spouses.   My camera seems to be taking fewer clear pictures of late but I picked out the best that I took, hubs and I sure hope that we will get some of the better pictures that others were taking.

My husbands Mother, Father and children.  They are sure a photogenic family. This family means the world to me and my daughters.  They are the best.

Just some random shots.  I picked out the best that I took.
Hubs and oldest daughter.
Sis-in-law and a favorite Uncle.
Mom-in-love and one of her best buddies.
This area is at the front of the church we attend.  It is rather large and was full most of the time.  There were tables sat up in the sanctuary and we had food and cake for the guests.
Mine and hubs project for the event was to put together a memory tree.  Took my wonderful man three tries but he put together some branches from our woods and I made the tags for the tree.

We also put my hubs in charge creating a poem to go with the tree.  I think you might be able to read it if you click on the picture to enlarge it.

That was the best of the pictures for the Anniversary party that I have so on to the Grands.  We have had some of the Grands visit this month over a couple of weekends.  These brothers were here earlier this month and spent some time in the wood shop with Grandpa building boxes to keep some treasures in.

There are two more brothers in this family but they were not able to come this time around.

This past weekend we had  the three children of my youngest daughter visit.

We put together a quick tea party.

Cookies and hot chocolate.  Of coarse instead of sugar on the table there had to be marshmallows. And the girls picked out their favorite tea cups to use.

Grandpa cut out airplane pieces which the girls glued together and painted.

This little guy spent the weekend zooming around and most of the pictures I tried to take were a blur until finally:

That is all I have for now,  I know there was a lot more going on around here since I last posted but these were the highlights.  I hope everyone is well and safe from all the storms that have gone through the states and hope you leave a comment letting me know what you have been up to.  I will try and catch up with everyone soon.

Blessings from our home in the woods!
