October: Celebrations

My parents celebrate for a whole week in October.  It was their 61st Anniversary last Friday.  They celebrated it by helping my sister bale hay.

Mom and Dad 61 st anniversary

Dad and Mom October 09, 2011

Dad was 85 yesterday.  He still plans to live to be 100.   He laughs at me and says “You will be 75 then.”  I always reply, “Dad you can go on without me.”

Dads birthday 2011

These beautiful/handsome youngins are all of my other baby brothers grand's. The four oldest are all in first grade this year.  Miss Brooke (she is two) just did not want to sit with the rest of the kids.  Miss Aubrey( she is three) down front in the pink top and pigtails..was not real happy either.  She is recovering from recent surgeries..a tonsillectomy in August and pallet repair surgery just three weeks ago.  So far she has endured five surgeries for a double cleft pallet.  Now she can say words that begin with P and B.. in a few weeks she will go back to preschool.

My Moms birthday rounds out the week..she will be 82 on Thursday.  Mom made cakes with rice flour because Dad cannot have gluten.  They were delicious:)

  2. Beautiful and precious photos. Happy Wishes to your parents. I hope little Brooke feels better soon - the surgeries must be very difficult for someone so young and active.

  15. Your parents really know how to celebrate! Baling hay and gathering with the family. That's probably why they look so good, too - hard work and lots of love.

  17. Ask your mom where she gets her gluten free recipes. Hubby and I have been wheat free, gluten free for over a month. I am still looking for recipes.

  18. What fun, fun, fun! I hope you charish your parents, oh, I know you do, but I just want you to add just a pinch more cherish just for me. How long has your dad not been able to eat wheat? Bet has made wheat free rye crackers, corn bread and today chocolate zucchini cake! Okay Bet and I ate a whole half of the recipe! She is off dairy, wheat, peanuts, and potatoes! I don't think any of them are the problem but it sure is making us add a lot of different flours into our diet, which we have kept meaning to.
