We sat around telling funny stories and looking at pictures, it was very nice to laugh and remember fun times.
And like so many other times when they came to visit they were a huge help in helping set up.
Do you remember how I told you I asked my aunt about my parents wedding reception? Well one of the things she told me was that they had an aluminium Christmas tree with turquoise ornaments. Debbie was able to borrow one and when my mom saw it she got teary eyed and asked how we knew. My aunt was able to give her a sly smile and tell her she had.
Here is a dress from one of my moms formals and my dads letterman jacket that we had on display.
Party favors CD's that look like records and a playlist of some of parents favorite songs.
After we finished setting up and getting ready for the family dinner/program.
My parents original cake topper.
We did a bake potato bar
The smoked meat was particularly good!
I didn't have a lot of time to eat as we had to get going on the program. First we had the grand kids get up and sing Lollipop which was pretty adorable if I do say my self.
My brothers Clint & Mark along with a family friend Dusty played my parents song Sleep Walk and did such a good job and when my dad cried of course I cried.
We took some quick family pictures and then it was time for the real party to start!
We had a soft serve ice cream machine along with cones and root beer for floats.
We of course had to dance The Twist.
And it was so nice to catch up with old friends.
