Grandma Turns 75

A few weeks ago we celebrated Grandma (my dad's mom) turning 75.  We all went out to Granbury and had a big party with all their neighbors.  It was fun to celebrate Grandma and get to see all my family. 

Grandma still plays tennis several times a week...the cake is very fitting.

Mozzarella ball topiaries...Aunt Pam's creation...this one put together by mom & Rebekah

Cousin Erin with the birthday girl.

Jeff & NolaAnn (Aunt & Uncle on my mom's side) - We've gone ahead and made them apart of the Welch family.

Grandma & PapaDub...I find them kinda funny.  I could have put up the normal picture, but I liked this one the best.

Parents & Sisters.  Just love my family.

Grandma & Dad.  I think they're kinda cute.

These children aren't related to me, but I couldn't stop taking pictures of them.  I almost took the pigtailed one home.

Thoughts on a Friday

  • It's been a whole month since I posted on this blog.  I think it's time for a comeback.
  • I've got a ton of pictures sitting on my camera waiting to be blogged.  Showers thrown, birthdays celebrated, all coming very soon.
  • I'm pretty sure everyone I know is having a baby. I counted this morning, I think it's going to be 9 babies before the end of 2010.  It's very exciting and makes me want to churn out baby crafts left and right.  It also occasionally sends me into momentary "I'm 2 life stages behind" freak outs.  But they are brief, and never overshadow my excitement for my friends. 
  • I have no plans for Memorial Day weekend and am very excited about it.  Relaxation and yard work, here I come.
  • Rebekah and I are running the Nike Women's Half Marathon in San Francisco in October. Deborah will most likely be working it, so it will be a Welch sister weekend! Super excited, and I better get a move on.  (OH, and you get a Tiffany's necklace instead of a medal when you excited!)
  • My friends Laura and Spencer are in the single digits in the countdown to the weekend is going to be a fun one full of wedding festivities.
  • I've been thinking a lot about the meaning behind Memorial Day and am so thankful for the people who serve our country so that I can live the life I do.
  • I'm pretty much an expert weed puller now.  My backyard was (and still is) full of them.  The progress is slow, but I'm about halfway through the flower beds.  It's a little intense. 
  • I just finished up small group for my girl's sophomore year.  We had a great time reflecting on what they've done with the first half of high school and what they want to do with the next two years.  I am blessed and challenged by those sweet girls.
  • I think that might be all the randomness that I have in me this morning.  More life updates to come!
