Happy Birthday, Deb

I have some catching up to do. Our daughter-in-law Deb had a birthday last Wednesday and I never got around to mentioning it here. She and our son Jeff drove down from NE Iowa on Friday and we were able to celebrate her birthday and mine (tomorrow) over the weekend. It's always good to see them and it doesn't happen nearly often enough.


Likewise we don't see enough of our son Mark and his family who live in MO. He and his wife, Stephanie, and one of our great-grandsons, Jeramiah, came over Saturday and spent the night too. The weekend went by all too quickly, but we had fun eating and playing cards.


Deb had to get an order of mocahete from El Charro to take back to Iowa. But first she had to sample it a bit.

Here she is with Jeramiah. He really has fallen in love with her and I can understand it because she is such a sweet person.

Here are two sons and wives..Mark, Stephanie, Deb, Jeff, and five year old Jeramiah of course.



Me with two of my boys.



Jeramiah walked in the door carrying what he assured me was "your favorite game, Grandma, Mary". I guess his Aunt Caitlin told him that since she and I spent many, many hours playing Husker Du when she was his age and even younger. This is the same game which now lives with Grandpa Mark & Grandma Stephanie. Guess what? Just like his aunt he can quite often beat me..even if I really am trying.


I wonder how long before the silver teeth go to the tooth fairy?

Mary, It looks like you all had a blast. I love getting together with my family. You start laughing when you walk in and then laugh all the way home, after you leave.

Happy Birthday!!
