Bert is 50!

Bert turned 50 last weekend and we had a big party for him! It was such a blessing to celebrate with our favorite friends and family.  We had so much fun that I did not take any pictures.  These were all pictures taken by others and sent to me.  So thankful for that, but we don't have any pictures of some of our friends that celebrated with us. As I get more, I will add them so we always remember who celebrated Bert's big 5-0 with him!
So thankful to have amazing friends who travel hours to celebrate with us and let me put them to work setting up!

My bestie and my best man!

This is right before Chris bought Bert his first shot of the night.

50 candles is like having a bonfire!

The celebration wouldn't be complete without embarrassing the birthday boy!

These future Volunteers were so proud of their boys for winning their bowl game!
E loves Reese so much!
Just in time for our new insurance to kick in, Caroline took a fall and busted open her chin.  6 stitches in the exact same spot as her sister.

We had tornado warnings one night so we had a family slumber party in the basement.  The girls thought is was so fun.  They can't wait until storms come through again. Ha!
Caroline and Ian love each other!  They sat there talking like this for about 5 minutes.  Caroline rubbed Ian's head the entire time.  So sweet.
Grandma sent Christmas presents!

All smiles in her new outfit from Grandma on the first day back to school.
