Papaw's 80th Birthday Party

Saturday night, Nana threw an 80th birthday party for Papaw at The Hermitage Smorgasbord. We celebrated Papaw's newest milestone with all of Chad's family and Nana & Papaw's friends. We had a wonderful time. It was nice to hear everyones stories about Papaw and his influence in thier lives. We watched a slideshow with pictures of Papaw throughout the years. It was wonderful to see him in his younger years and meet the Papaw we never knew. Chad really admires his grandparents and we look to them as role models for our lives and marriage. They have been married for 58 years and their relationship is an amazing testimony of how successful a marriage can be when it is founded in Christ. The kids are both crazy about Papaw and they had a fun time hanging out and eating birthday cake! I included some pics to share with everyone!
Chad and his Papaw.
Taylor with her Papaw. Look at that cute grin on her face!

Chad and his girls....Taylor was too busy running around with Lauren to pose with us on this one!

Papaw and Courtlyn

Chad and his little sister Dee. Unfotunately, it's a rare moment when we get to see Dee and I took advantage and snapped a picture. Dee is busy with PTA school and we are busy chasing two girls! We don't get to see her as much as we'd like to but we love her bunches and are SOOOOO proud of her for chasing her dream....she graduates in May --- YEAH!!!

The great-grandkids...I almost typed "in rare form" but who would I be kidding?

Just hangin' out.
