GOSH, we had a good time..and the food was EXCELLENT

Hi, Everyone...

I posted about the Anniversary/Birthday Breakfast...
now for the evening celebration with our daughter and her sweet family....

and, I have to say at this point, that there will be ANOTHER Anniversary/Birthday posting as we are having dinner with our son, David, and his delightful family to celebrate....
And, I want to chronicle every thing about our celebrations...one never knows what next year may bring.
So, please hang with me thru all the celebrations....ok..??


Our daughter, Stacy, and her family brought over the most delicious homemade TACO SOUP and we ate it so fast, I didn't get one single, solitary photo of it.

She had grated cheese, avocado, lime slices, sour cream .....tortilla chips.....
and it was, by far, the BEST Taco Soup we've ever eaten. I'll share the recipe with you when I get it. :)

The chocolate cake with cream cheese icing was awesomely delicious...and the great candles sparkled and sent out sparks..sooo delightful.
Mr. Sweet LOVED his 79th Birthday Cake.... 
Ladies, he really IS such a Mr. Sweet.
The sweetest man I've ever known...

 
Two pretty grandgirls..DEEDS and BRYNNA.

The other bunch of grands and DAVID and KATHY 
had a track meet and couldn't be with us......
and we sure missed them.

 

Mr. Sweet and our handsome
BROOKS....
his brother, DREW, came over but had to leave and we all forgot to get his picture. BUMMER













....HAPPY BIRTHDAY !


...HAPPY ANNIVERSARY....
hope we are blessed to have another one this same time NEXT YEAR....

I sure am planning on it. !!! 















The girls and Stacy are always dressed SOOO cute...

We had such a great evening....

 awwww, I think it had been a loooong day for 
JENT and STACY....

Thank ya'll for everything !
We love all of you sooo much....

Happy Happy to you both!! You are so blessed to have such a close & loving family, BJ. You can tell by the love in their eyes that they adore you & Mr. Sweet.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful photos & I look forward to the soup recipe, too.

Did I tell you we added our leftover Easter ham to that potato soup that you recommended? YUMMO!! Gave it an extra something that was great. I'll do that again, for sure.

Hugs,
