A Celebration Worth Sharing!

This is Grandma Jo. Today we celebrated her 70th Birthday with a surprise party at McNelle's in Downtown Tulsa and boy was she ever surprised. She was so nervous she couldn't even eat the entire time we were there. But it was so nice she was able to just visit with everyone and enjoy the day. There was a teriffic turnout and she was just overwhelmed with all the love in the room. All the kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids were there for the celebration as well as friends and loved ones. Everyone came from near and far to see her. She certainly deserved this day.
The hardest part was the slide show for me was seeing pictures of my grandpa once again. I miss him terribly so. They were the perfect match together. They owend a daylight donut shop together for years and retired from that and now that he's gone, it was difficult to see photos of him again but it was fun to remember the good times we had together with my grandpa.

I love her sense of humor, her whitty personality, and the way she loves her family. Best of all, she loves to pick on Chad! And that's the best! She can dish it and and take it like the best of them! She's a strong woman and I love her for that! I really admire her heart and courage for who she is and what she stands for! She truly is an amazing woman!
