Birthday Girl

I experienced a nice quiet morning for me with the house all to myself while Duane went to play pickleball.  After lunch we caught up on our missed tv shows via computer, then headed out to hobnob with the family.  Brandey and I planned to attend a women's fellowship evening.  The guys were thinking of attending a cattle sorting.  In this event, a certain steer has to be separated from the rest of the herd by a contestant on horseback.  Turns out that another of those severe storm cells complete with tornado warning moved in and everyone ended up in the neighbors' safe room!  This passed quickly, as it usually does in this part of Texas, and we were soon back at the house for a surprise hatched up by Brandey .  We had a birthday party!  (originally planned to take place at the women's fellowship, but, hey, we bloom where we're planted.)

Happy Birthday To Me

We all ate our broccoli so that we could enjoy cupcakes.

Emma had a raffle

Grandpa won a prize!

Grandpa won a grand prize!  It was a tube that you can talk through or wear on your head.  

Ava thought the raffle was a good idea and had one of her own.  Birthday Girl won the grand prize!

After the raffle we had a dance.  The girls dressed for the occaison.

First was a father/grandfather dance. (Music provided by DJ Momma and her rockin' phone)

A fast dance

Sister dips sister

Chicken dance

Momma shows us how to dance to "Cotton Eyed Joe"

After the dance Ava sang "Let It Go" from Disney's Frozen.

Best birthday party ever!

Only two more days of fun left!

Louise and Duane
