Happy 60th Birthday, Grandma Barbara!
On September 19, 40 family and friends came to Benny and EJ's house
to help us celebrate Barbara's milestone birthday:
Benny and EJ served clam chowder, shrimp salad, mahi tacos, and fried shrimp:
Our gift to Barbara was this framed family photo
that included birthday messages from family and friends:
A note from Benny:
"Happy Birthday to the best mom in the world.
A note from Gran and Grandaddy:
"To our #1 Daughter, you're the best. Thank God for you."
A note from Benny, EJ, and Harper Grace:
"Words cannot describe how blessed we are to have you in our lives.
You are always there for us and we couldn't love you more! Love you!"
A note from Barbara's cousin Beverly:
"Happy Birthday! You are such a kind and giving soul and
so proud you are part of my family! I love you.
Maybe you can sit at the 'grown up' table now."
A handmade gift from a friend:
