Birthdays

The end of January and beginning of February is chalk full of birthdays!  It definitely brings cheer to the dreary winter months.  
Sean & Emily flew back from Arizona/Utah (I like to call it Utazona) for Georgia's funeral and it just so happened to be Em's birthday.  So even though it was a tough weekend it was great that we all got to be together for her big day.  Emily requested to have lunch at one of her favorite places to eat as a child, Brookville Hotel in Abilene, Kansas (formerly in Brookville, KS).  I think I was the only one who had never eaten there before and I was excited!
The birthday girl sat at the head of the table.  (Sorry this picture is so dark! I tried to edit it but it wouldn't save.)

She got lots of fun jewelry and gifts.



The food was absolutely amazing.  It was all homestyle cooked food.  I can still taste it... mmmm.... It reminded me a lot of when we went to Stroud's here in KC for Ryan's birthday.

Susan & Papa
I love the wallpaper behind them!

The whole gang but a blurry picture. :(  

Sean's parents were even able to join us!

Sally, Emily, Sean, Ryan, Susan, Harlan & Papa
It was actually Harlan's birthday a few days after Emily's.  Sally & Susan surprised him with a birthday party in their home town that we unfortunately couldn't attend.   I hear he had a blast.  :)

Here is Papa & Susan remembering Mimi (Papa's wife & Susan's mom) would have been 85.  Mimi & Emily shared a birthday.

The siblings

It was also Papa's birthday today!!  He would tell you he's in his 84th year and 9th decade (so he's 83).  This was a picture I snapped of him on our way home.  Even after that ginormous lunch at Brookville, Papa requested to stop off for Freddy's ice cream.  You gotta love Papa!
