Sharon came home for a week and a bit! Sharon lived with her parents while I was in my teens. She was pretty integral to all our game nights and silliness. Not sure what we would have done without her around!
It was awesome to see her again!
It also was Connie's 80th (!!) birthday. So a party was required.
(Some of these pictures are from Sharon, so I can't take all the photo credit here)
The birthday girl. We actually didn't get the hats out until the end, but since it is a party for Connie, it seems to make sense to put her first. She is spry and sprightly for 80!
Grandpa and Abilene-a girl!
The appetizer table. Owen and Scott were strategically close to it.
Sharon does things up right! We had a lovely punch & ice cream concoction in plastic martini glasses. It was blue, since Connie likes blue.

Aren't they sweet?
These are sweet too.
I love all the cuteness!!

Connie and her girl
Alice. I wasn't sure if I should put her serious picture...
...Or her laughing "You are going to break your camera" picture. Alice always tells me not to take pictures of her because it will break my camera. Hasn't happened yet!
Owen and Abilene
This girl was running a low grade fever and was still this happy! Isn't she marvelous?
While I was taking pictures of Abilene, Scott was saying "But I am over here. Why are you taking pictures over there?" Still the same ole Scott.

Abilene and Mommy
The whole meeting. We haven't had a meeting picture in a few years, so this was really nice!
I love all these people!
Reading over Connie's birthday cards. She got a LOT!
That's ma man!
I like this picture!
This is where Connie was actually wearing the hat, time wise. We will put it in here again because she is the birthday girl.

Sharon and I! This here girl helped me through all my teenage drama and silliness and still likes me! She is pretty special!
