This past weekend was my Daddy’s 70th birthday. Thanksmy sister, Misty Houghton Levasseur & my brother and sister in law Erik & Holly Houghton for handling all the preparations for food, invitations, etc. They went above and beyond and did a fabulous job with everything. A special thanks to Tim Frank for making the most awesome photo tree centerpieces for the tables. A special thanks to Holly’s sister, Valerie Hall for getting the tables/chairs and for helping Holly with food and serving at Daddy’s birthday. We all had a great time and we were able to see family and friends some that I hadn’t seen in 25 years! It was a very special day and the only sad thing was that Doug wasn’t able to be there also but he did call and talk to Daddy during the party. My nieces Melissa and Kylie helping with food before the guests arrived. Melissa is my brother Eriks oldest daughter and Kylie is my sister Misty’s oldest girl.
Longtime family friends the Allen’s. Mom, Larry, me, Janet Allen. Mr. Larry is the one who got me to finish high school. Miss Janet and mom were part of a group who started a preschool at the CSCUMC in Cape St. Claire when Damon & Todd Allen were little. They are more like extended family than friends. Dad & Mr. Larry are always up to something when they get together 🙂
The Rawlings’: Mom, Mr. Fred, Daddy & Miss Jan. Daddy & Mr. Fred grew up together and lived around the corner from each other in Annapolis. I haven’t seen Miss Jan in over 20 years. I used to see Mr. Fred when I was working at Colonial Florist before we moved to Georgia but that’s been over 12 years!! It was soo good to see them again!!
The Levassuer family gave Daddy sky lanterns to Daddy for his birthday. I wasn’t able to get good pics in the sky of them I haven’t figured out how to work all the functions on the camera. But the show was nice and only one wound up in the tree but I had already put the camera away when it happened.
