Granny's Birthday

My mother loves her family, her home, her animals.
She loves her siblings, parents, and pecan pie.
She has loved being a mother and a grandmother.
She has kissed countless hurts and scrapes, sung thousands of lullaby's, and spent as many hours snuggling her greatest creations.
She is a lover of horses, outdoors, camping, fishing.
She has a testimony of the gospel of Christ, and helped cultivate that testimony in her children.
She has always kept a clean home, made time for her children, taken meals to those in need.
She is an amazing seamstress and loves to do crafts.
Over the years, she has accepted the help from neighbors and friends through all the trials she has endured, which has included 17 surgeries.
She was one of the very first cases of Toxic Shock in 1982; she barely and miraculously survived.
She had six pregnancies, has four living children and almost 5 grandchildren.
We are all glad she is with us here today.
We all love and appreciate her so very much.

The menu was: Corn Salsa, Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Green Salad, Watermelon & Strawberries.

Uncle Jordan had the kids lay on the driveway and he traced them with chalk.
