We like to party. And with a three month old and a two year old, let me tell you, we are a BLAST. But we had reason to celebrate because my favorite mother-in-law turned 60 on June 16. You would never know she's 60. She's beautiful, talented, strong and has more energy than I could ever dream of having.
Did I mention creative? And she passed it along to her kiddos.
She painted the striped board on the left. Dave did the one on the right.
They were a big hit.
4 of Jan's 7 siblings.
So if you're better at math than I am, that means her parents had 8 kids. 8.
These two sweethearts just celebrated 42 years of marriage.
My sweet sis-in-law Kate created a book for Jan entitled
"If You Give My Mom A Project"
It included pictures of the NUMEROUS projects she has helped all of us with and things that we love about her. A few of mine included being thankful for her margaritas and counting out loud while measuring cups of flour for cookies. Pearls I tell you.
Jason and Shannon joined via Skype from New Zealand (and announced they are having a baby!)
Wahoo! Welcome to the smoothie movement!
A heart to heart with sweet Grandpa John.
The immediate fam spent the night and we went to the park and hung out on the back patio. It was a wonderful day. So thankful for this lovely lady and all that she has given to us.
Happy 60th Mom.
