Last weekend we had the pleasure of getting the whole family together for my grandparent’s 80th birthdays. They are 4 months apart and so we decided to throw them a party in between their big birthdays. They are the most incredible people I know. At 80 years old, my grandmother still sews quilts and dresses and pants for kids in Panama and my grandfather serves in the most unbelievable way. He is stronger and in way better shape than I will ever be in. My cousins were all sitting around joking about how strong he is and how he can run circles around all of us. He takes food to the sick. He sits with people who are struggling and he comes over to my parent’s house often asking if he can fix anything or do yard work or help us with anything. Shouldn’t it be the other way around? They are truly incredible people.
Is my cousin not the most precious thing pregnant with her twin babies! I can’t wait to meet them!
I was so excited to have the opportunity to celebrate both of them because they do so much for us. They took my entire family on that cruise back in August, and they used to take us on big trips often when we were all younger (before the 10 grandkids started having children). We created so many memories with them and continue to do so. They have precious hearts and silly sense of humors and really fun personalities.
Here is a video that my sister and cousin put together for them. Please don’t hate on our Alabama southern accents. haha
