I have the best kids EVER!!!

My kids threw us a surprise 25th anniversary party last night!!!

Early in the week, they told us to save Friday night because they all wanted to cook us a special dinner. Well, the dinner was amazing and so was the company!!!

I love my kids so much!!!

Alyssa made us close our eyes, b/c she wanted us to be surprised with the meal..


I knew something was up when she went to take us out on the deck, but was totally surprised by our friends being out there!


They had an amazing spread laid out.....lots of goodies!!


They also had the makings for kabobs and had everyone make their own!
Then they grilled them.....


Well, my wonderful friend and neighbor grilled them!


No, we've not been married 52 years......

The weather was perfect!


what a fun night!!


Thanks kids!!! I love you so much and appreciate all the hard work that went into the party! You're the BEST and I couldn't be more proud of all of you!!!

Sara, the recruiter had to reschedule my son's testing etc. because he is waiting on a Dr's release from a shoulder surgery that he had in high school. As of now it is rescheduled for this Tuesday and Wednesday. I've given it over to the Lord now, so I'm feeling a lot better about it. I do covet your prayers.....thank you so much!

By the way, your kids are so sweet! Sounds like you all had a wonderful time and some great food too. :)

OH how fun!
We got to plan Rob's parent's 40th and it was so special.
It's not often we kids get to do something to show our parents what they mean to us. Sara, you've got some wonderful kids! (and friends too!)
Hooray! for your special day!
