My Husband is the Best!

Today, Eric hosted a wonderful 40th birthday party/picnic at the Kiwanis Park in Athens. He was so sweet to plan and invite our friends from church. He was determined to do everything by himself and he did an excellent job!

He used this new "evite" that we discovered from our friend, Donna, to invite everyone, and we were so pleased that we actually had a few friends show up! :) We are truly blessed with wonderful friends at our church here in makes life a little easier since we miss our family.

So here are a few pictures from the day. I was sad that we didn't get to take more but my camera died & my spare batteries were still sitting in the charger in the kitchen at home. :(

Eric made a delicious homemade chocolate sheet cake. YUMMMY!

Don't you love his decoration?

Kristi, Nathan, Asher, Kim, Penny, & Jeff enjoying the hamburgers & hot dogs.

Here's a view from the other end of the pavilion. We were really happy that we were able to get to use the picnic was a crowded day at the park!

Jenna & I had quite a hard time getting our boys to sit down to eat...I think Ethan ate a total of 3 bites of his hot dog. He did NOT want to quit sliding!
I was SOOOO excited to see our dear friends, Taffy & Buddy, walk up! I was so surprised that they drove from Waxahachie to eat with us. I miss them so much!

More sweet friends...Shelley, Glenda, Sharon, Clyde, Nathan, Michael, & Kristie.
It was pretty hot but the wind was blowing, so it wasn't TOOOOOO bad.

We did manage to get one picture of Evan in the background & cute little Kolson eyeing some food. Jenna said he approved of the baked beans.

Ethan was not too happy that he had to stop playing to take this picture. I'm not sure where Evan would have been nice to have one family picture. :) Oh well. Maybe next time.
Thank you, Eric, for working so hard to plan the party for me. Thank you, Parkers & Wrights, for helping us transport the grill & set up everything. Thank you, all of my dear friends, for making my day special. "I thank my God upon every remembrance of you." (Phillipians 1:3)
It's really weird to think that I'm 40...I don't really feel that different...I really feel much younger...I guess it's all a matter of perspective.


  1. And I'll do it all exactly 10 years. Seriously, it brought be joy to do it for you. Remember, my love language is "acts of service"! Now I need to go to bed since I have two service to lead tomorrow morning :)

    I love you!

  2. It was a great night! Good job Eric!! So glad we were able to celebrate with you! Looks like 40 is going to be pretty good! We are thankful for y'all and love having you as friends.
