IT WAS WONDERFUL!!!
VERY hot & humid but the rains held off and everyone had a great time! We were all working feverishly to get everything done in time and the chicken took a little longer than first anticipated but that's okay, because everyone said it was "the best chicken they had ever tasted!"
There just wasn't enough time to get everything done and snap photos too but I did catch a few for Mo's scrapbook.
Morgan & her dad went to both ends of the road posting signs & balloons to help people find their way. Living out in the country ... the GPS doesn't always find the road so they tried to help by posting indicators! AND .. I'm happy to say... even though it took some folks an EXTENDED amount of time, they did find the party and had a great time.
I didn't get a photo of ALL the food (pasta/meatballs, scallop potatoes/ham, fruit salad, taco bar, tossed salad, orzo salad, cupcakes, cookies, homemade strudel) and of course these delicious sausage stuffed chickens ... cooked over this open rotisserie!
MORGAN'S BIG SURPRISE!
CJ is HERE!!
For those of you who follow my blog ... you will know that Morgan's boyfriend, CJ had a very serious car crash back in March that nearly took his life!! We are thrilled to say that he is improving with every given day. He is still in a rehab center and hasn't been permitted to put any weight on his legs yet (broke his pelvis in 4 places - along with several other broken bones) but he is working really hard toward that goal and is actually ahead of schedule!
Several of us knew his Dad had rented a wheelchair accessible van in order to transport CJ to the party ... but Morgan didn't know! SHE CRIED & CRIED to see him there! The best present ever!
We had friends & family of all ages, and from ALL OVER come to share in Morgan's special day! Here are a few of her friends ...
... and here is some of the older generation family members. These two lovely ladies are MY mother's sister's (Aunt Glory-left-age 84 and Aunt Ruth on the right - age 91) ... we were so glad they were able to come and share the day!
Besides eating, sitting around socializing & drinking lots of water to try and stay hydrated in this heat & humidity ... there was fun to be had! Here is Mo's brother Jon showing off some of his trampoline skills ... there was also volleyball/badminton ... and of course the little ones loved being able to pet the horses. Yes, they have two horses (Romeo & Meg) ... sorry no photo, couldn't watch the kids around the horse & take a photo too!
Even though she was HOT, TIRED & STICKY ... I think this was a day that Morgan will always remember and cherish!
CONGRATULATIONS OUR SWEET MORGAN!
WE LOVE YOU!!
