Happy 70th Birthday, Mom!

I am interrupting normal posting for a very, very special day. We will get back to ordinary news another day.

Today my mother Martha Boggs is 70 years old. 

Happy Happy Birthday, Mother Dear! I hope you have a great day and many more healthy years. We love you and appreciate all you do. Thank you for your Godly example as we were growing up and even now.

We were rushing so much to get home Monday because we had big plans that evening. We had planned a small gathering at Dad's barn to celebrate Mom's birthday. I suggested it last week when I realized we could be home and my sister and brothers put it all together. They did all the work and I showed up just in time. It worked out quite nicely. They are pretty gracious that way. 

All the kids and spouses, most of the grandchildren, several aunts and uncles and a few cousins were present and we had a great time.

Dad's barn has become the go to place for all our family gatherings and now I think we make up excuses to huddle in the big red barn.

Here is the birthday girl herself!

Tommy, Holly, Steve, Karen, Theresa, Dad and probably others cooked up some super great food for all of us to enjoy. Mom even cooked up a few tasty dishes. What's up with that? Cooking for her own birthday party? We all protested but we still ate the fresh out of the garden green beans and potatoes. 

We had a lot of fun!

Tuesday was a work day for us. Kelly Jo and Odie worked to pull everything together to leave in the Green Machine. I finished a bunch of paper work and tried to prepare the BoggsMobile to stay by itself a few days. 

We did take time for lunch at Acapulco (of course) with some new friends.

I will have more pictures and news from Tuesday later in the week.

I hope you all have a great Wednesday. We are traveling the next couple of days but we should be posting as normal. God bless you all.
