60 and forward...

SURPRISE!!

Hugs all around... Grace with me here.

Honey Hugs and pictures taking pictures.

Chocolate cake! And ICE CREAM!

Grace "riding" Sally piggy-back.

Me and my girls: Joy, Ruth, Me, Alice, Charity

The HUGHES SIX.  FR: Ruth, Joy, Alice, Charity

Al and I behind them.

Sally puts ice cream on Savannah's nose...

... and Jesse hides behind a balloon.

Turning sixty was no big deal until the surprise event! Before the Wednesday night service, the girls brought me lovely gifts: yellow roses, pink azaleas, a Vera Bradley handbag and Cookie Lee jewelry.  Then the crowd quickly disappeared while I was "detained".  I followed the last of the crowd and found everyone "hiding" in the fellowship hall. 

What a sweet family and church family God has blessed me with! Thank you everyone!

Sorry I had to miss it. I have started doing care giving in the evenings at the same place that I clean during the day. Looks like you had a fun night.
