The Food

Happy Thursday to you. On Thursdays, I always try to share something I'm thankful for; today it is pretty easy to see-I am so thankful for our two daughters and their dear hubby's. I am also thankful for all of our grands who worked hard to make this surprise so wonderful. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the wonderful man I married; I think our daughters creativity came from him. I am so thankful for his love and commitment to our family. To our girls, words can never adequately express our profound love and appreciation for all you do each and every day; and to our sil's, you make our daughters lives so much richer just by being the incredible hubby's you are.  Thank you! You also bless our socks off.

Notice the cutting board above-hubby made this about three years ago. 

I am still so in awe of all the work that went into planning this party, transforming the shop into a hall, and cooking all this wonderful food.

I've shown you many of the cakes that our sil has made for his daughters and this one was also just as incredible; reminded me of a wedding cake.  I've said again and again, that this was like being at a wedding for your children, but getting to enjoy it totally without the business of all the various jobs you need to do.
Tomorrow I will share photos of the loved ones who honored us by sharing our celebration.
I hope you all have a splendid day and can find lots in your life to be thankful for. 
Blessings, Noreen
