Party Weekend!!

Ruth's birthday is the 13th and her big surprise party was on the 17th. I picked up Ruth, Ci, Tanya and Sid Saturday morning and we drove to Lordsburg, New Mexico. Ruth kept asking us all the way there what we were going for. We told her we were picking up her sister Myrtle. Ruth thought that was a long way to go and why couldn't someone else bring her back to Phoenix. We dropped her off at her sister June's and the rest of us went to the church to decorate. June told her they were going to the
church for a game night so she had to get dressed up. Ruth just wanted to stay at the house but they talked her into going. She was really surprised when she walked in the door and everyone started singing Happy Birthday.
All of her brothers and sisters were there.
This is the youngest of the bunch, Roy, his
wife Sunny and a great granddaughter.
My sister, Ci, Sunny and Tanya's son Sid

The back drop is a quilt made by Ruth's
Grandmother Hatch. One of her cousins
brought it to show everyone. From left

Vanita, and Sunny. In front are Ruth and
Myrtle. Ruth had a great time visiting with
the over 100 guests that came to wish her
well. She said, "This was so much fun I think
I will stick around and have another one next
year. We drove home Sunday morning.
The Glendale Stake is doing Youth Olympics.
Tanner got 1st place for making PJs for Adalyn.

Sunday was Diana's birthday! The family got
together at Darla's for dinner and birthday cake.
Her favorite is Lincoln Log. I made two just in case.
Princess Diana had to blow 3 times to
get all the candles out.
