We also spent some moments with our son James and his family; but no pictures. I don't know what happened there because according to my children I am always taking pictures.
 The Beginning of the day of celebration  - I turned 67 on November 20th~
Today we also received an invitation to a dinner
 sponsored by the youth for the Elderly in the ward.
 I must say we laughed about this one.
Of course, we don't consider ourselves elderly.

Glad you had a happy birthday with lots of family around!

Sorry about the election, but look at all the wonderful family time you had and a great birthday!

Anne Payne said...

Wow! What an awesome family!!! So many blessings from the Lord :) I can see you had a very happy birthday, too. That chocolate cake looks like it was delicious!

Darlene said...

What a great looking son Travis is!! He looks so good in his uniform. Too darned bad he didn't win, but there is always a next time.

I so enjoyed all the wonderful pictures of your family. The ones of you and Roger were especiailly interesting to me. I would so love to see you guys in person. Maybe it will happen next summer. I hope I will be able to travel then. I'm sure not much good at it now.

It was wonderful that your daughter and her family could spend so much time with you. Honestly, I am so envious. My kids hardly ever visit. I have to go see them. The only exception is Sue's family. They ALL come for about five days at the end of May for what they used to call their "golf week." It has slipped to five days and I hope it doesn't slip any more than that. The guys all go golfing every day at a different golf course, and we surely do have a lot of them to choose from, but somehow they end going to the same ones each year.

What a great celebration you had for your 67th birthday!! Roger makes a pretty mean looking cake. I am impressed. I thought I was the only one who's husband cooked. Dick does a lot of baking, but he has never made me a cake!! What fun you all had. It is so neat to have family with us, isn't it? My whole family came for my 80th birthday, but that is the last time they were here at one time. Maybe if I make 90, they will all come again. That's certainly something I could look forward to.

Take care, LeAnn..........love ya

Love these pics! And I didn't see any elderly people in sight. You look great, LeAnn :) Blessings!
