Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, The last of life, for which the first was made: Our times are in His hand Who saith "A whole I planned, Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid!" - From "Rabbi Ben Ezra" by Robert Browning

Happy 12th Birthday Ian!

In older posts I've talked about my husband's son, John IV, his wife, Deborah, and their children. Yesterday, there was a party to celebrate our oldest grandson's 12th birthday. I can't call him a boy anymore. He's now a young man, and we had a great time celebrating that fact! Family and friends gathered at the Alderfam home of John IV and Deborah for the epic event. Cake and ice cream, games and fun, and of course, presents! Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the party. Hope you enjoy them!

Ian decorated his own cake, and chose a Middle Earth them. He used a map from one of Tolkein's books to go by. The figures are characters from The Lord of the Rings

Youngest brother, Andrew

Younger brother Isaac.

Sister, Emily

  1. This is sort of what happened that ominous July 4th in 2009! This time I didn't try to hold on too tight to the order of the pictures. I let them go where they wanted to. Then, the captions identifying the family didn't line up. Well, better this semi-jumble than nothing at all!
