John's Birthday Party

John had a happy birthday - can you tell?

Tim and I took John to brunch at Ashley's after church on Sunday morning.  He had a good time with Mom and Dad.

But the real fun was Sunday night after church when three great friends, Nathalie, Kyle, and Beau threw a party for John at his house.

Kyle and Beau's parents made venison chili with the deer Beau killed at the farm at Christmas.  Belva brought some awesome brownies.  She gave me the recipe.  Thanks, Belva :)

Nathalie's mom, Ericka, manned the kitchen.

The guys played ping-pong.  Of course.

The girls talked and talked some more - they are girls, after all.

We older girls talked too - we are still girls, after all.

Some of the guys played guitar in one room while the cd player blared contemporary Christian music in another room.

It was loud - and lots of fun!

Did I mention the girls talked.  They laughed, squealed, and hammed it up for the camera.  Did I mention that they are girls, after all?

They decided to call John in from a ping-pong game to get his picture made with the group.  They didn't have to ask him twice :)

Nick enjoyed the attention everyone gave him, especially a special little lady by the name of Mary Grace.

It sure made this mom feel so good to know that her boy has good friends who love him and care enough about him to throw him a party.  Thanks to all of you who came.

I'm so sorry I didn't get pictures of everyone.  I only had my iphone camera, and the battery finally went dead.  I'm especially sorry I didn't get pics of Kyle and Beau.

And Belva and Sherm, that picture of us?  It didn't turn out good, so I didn't post it.  Trust me on this.

Fun time.  Good memories.
