Hubby's Fiftieth

Ruby Tuesday

We had such a nice family gathering for my husbands fiftieth birthday
Becca made apple crisp - which was very good.

people said the nicest things to do a little tribute to him The comments he said "greatly warmed his soul". There were some things we knew, there were some that we were not aware of. He also said "Never has a birthday been more special to me. I am not sure that I was all that deserving of the attention."

Our great nephew helped him w/all those candles
I was so glad family came from near

and a little far-and for the messages from afar

our two oldest sons (one on the phone) had us in tears they were so sweet

Becca put together a wonderful slide show of pictures through the years.

and his sister Sari sent some that
he said were fun to look at, to recall the memories and to feel the love of others.
like this one w/ my wonderful MIL who passed over ten years ago( I could not get it bigger)

there were some very sweet gifts

some "old age funny" gifts

and some needed ones

Thank you everyone so much!!
I love this wonderful man and I am glad that we found each other many years ago.
