80th Birthday Party

Happy, Happy 80th birthday to a very amazing woman!

We celebrated Dave's moms birthday on the 15th with a very nice party held in The Dalles. 5 of her 7 children were there along with their families and many of her friends. The food was wonderful and the cake was very tasty. Here's a picture of the birthday girl herself in the tiara Janis made for her:

This is a picture of Gabe in his tie. His cousin Karl had a tie at Thanksgiving and Gabe really wanted to wear one to his grandma's party. Believe it or not, we made a special trip into town to find that boy a tie-- and I must say he looks pretty darn handsome!

This is Dan and his whole family; Nancy, Sonny, Henry Paul and Ruby June.

Just us...

Dave's sister Dianne, her daughter Hali, and granddaughter Piper.

Dave's brother Jim and his family; Alex, Karl, and cutie Kyle.

and finally, this is Steve and his family; Janis, Dawn, Charlie, James, and all of the grandkids.

Don't you just love this picture of Joan and Bill? I do. Trust me...Bill just barely tolerates me and my camera. Ha-Ha.

This next picture is one of my favorites from the day. Gabe, Karl, and Zach. They had the best time playing together that day. So, so cute.

Happy Birthday Joan!
