a & p's 27th

friday night, we celebrated my aunt and uncle's 27th anniversary! we ate dinner at a really swanky steakhouse called diamondback's. i had the best herb roasted chicken and au gratin potatoes (wasn't feeling like a steak that night)
mike had the stuffed shrimp which he said were fantastic.
after dinner, we went to my grandparents' house for presents and cake. yum! here are aaron and peggy with their cake. and my grandmother had homemade caramel candy (she makes the best ever), coffee, tea, punch, and another cake. can you tell we all love to eat?!here i am with my other aunt vicki and cousin savanah

opening their presents

and my sweet grandaddy (who we just found out has bone cancer). he is one of the kindest, most positive people ever. we thought we would have to say goodbye to him 10 years ago after a severe accident caused him to need brain surgery, which caused poisoning of his stomach lining, and caused him to lose kidney function and the ability to swallow. he has made such a recovery over the last several years, but his speech was almost totally affected. but even today if you ask him how he is, he always says "doing good." i know our family feels so blessed to have had him with us these last 10 years. we love you grandaddy!

on a different subject, i had a gift card to PoshTots and used it to buy sadie's bouncer and this cutie diaper bag! and it was on great is that?!
