My Hubby Had A Special Birthday!
Those are my six words today. What are yours? You can join in by clicking the button above and linking up with Cate for Six Word Saturday!
This year was a special event for my husband John. He had his 66th birthday on 11-11-11. That will never happen again for him and he was excited about it.
I looked around and found this 11-11-11 shirt for him to remember it by.
He started early by going to a Nebraska game with his brother Bill, (Thanks Bill!), and then onto Alma, Ne. to celebrate with his brothers and sister and extended family and friends. They had a gathering out at the golf and country club. He really enjoyed that time with all of them.
He is the oldest of 7 kids. This picture is John with some of them, before the two youngest were born.
And here is a picture from a past cousins reunion. John loves his family so much!
Mom and dad passed a few years ago and now he is the oldest in his immediate family.
Only 6 of them in this picture because his sister Pam has gone to heaven too.
This is John with his sweet Aunt Gladys!
I stayed home this trip because I had tickets to a concert that I didn't want to miss. But he had a great time, and liked celebrating early. Then he came home and just he and I enjoyed his actual birthday, and when we have our family Thanksgiving gathering next Saturday we will celebrate his birthday with kids and grandkids!!!! So I think it turned out to be a nice birthday for him in many ways.
Grandpa always wants to get in on the fun! (This is an old picture and since then our sweet little Anna has gone on to be with Jesus. It has been 7 years today since her entry into the arms of Jesus...but we always carry her in our hearts. Grandpa loved her so much...as he does all of his grandkids!)
The older girls Abigail and Bailey are now 18 and 19...I know they will just be overjoyed that I'm posting this picture! ha!
John deserves the extra attention because he is just one of the greatest guys around! He is a loving husband, dad, and grandpa, as well as a great brother and friend. I thank the Lord all of the time for my wonderful husband. I was so blessed the day I married him!
We have both changed quite a bit over the years don't ya think? But we are still young at heart! Especially when our kids and grandkids are around.
Have a good Saturday everyone.
