Grandma Linda's Birthday!

Today we had the opportunity of throwing a birthday party for Grandma Linda (Loren's mom). It didn't turn out to be a surprise like we had hoped but it was still a lot of fun to celebrate her special day and she had the majority of her kids there! We had a nice dinner of sloppy joes, mandarin orange salad, pasta salad, chips, and of course cake and ice cream.

After dinner we digested our meal over a rousing game of Apples to Apples. The birthday girl won!!! Grandma is a HOOT to play Apples to Apples with. If you are familiar with the rules then this next part will make sense. The green card said "EXPLOSIVE" and grandma put in the card that said "underwear." It was very funny, especially coming from grandma! Another green card said "Appetizing" and grandma didn't read the definition on her red card and so she just put in the card that said "whips." She was thinking like a milk shake or smoothing type of "whip." But upon looking closer at the card, we realized it was not a food whip...more along the lines of leather whips. Great fun! She is filled with these witty cards. We all had a great laugh!! Anyway enjoy our pictures!

-Grandma Linda doesn't like store bought cakes so Sydney helped me pick out candy to decorate a homemade cake. We went with an Easter theme. (If you couldn't tell)

-Sydney, Loren, Linda and Morgan--Loren sure loves his mom and the girls adore Grammy Linda!!
