Mother High’s 96th Birthday Party – Part 1

Last night we had a covered dish supper to celebrate her birthday.

1 (1)Justin, Josh, Jordan, and Cerwin.

After lunch we asked the young guys in our man cave to help get the table board and saw horses from the pavilion to use for the serving table. We timed their help perfectly – just before the Eagles game started.

1 (2)Ian and Jared found a small branch of leaves with something that looked like small eggs attached to the bottom of the leaves. Someone told them to go find Jeremy and Shtefan (brothers) to find out what they are.

1 (3)   I love how intently Ian and Jared listened to the bigger boys discuss what they may be. They came to the conclusion that they were spores.

1 (4)   I noticed that something was getting everyone’s attention – just beyond the food table, and saw that one of the new babies and his parents had just arrived.

1 (6)Deb, Bryson, Leslie, and Bryan.

1 (5)Bryson is five weeks old – and the grandson of Cerwin’s brother, Elvin.

When someone tried to take him from her, she said, “I’m not finished holding him yet.” 🙂
