This past Nov. 5th was my Dad's 80th birthday so I flew out to Ontario to join the celebration. I arrived on a Friday and the following day we helped set up the JCS gym for a catered dinner. We had a beautiful time together - although we were missing my sister's family from Indonesia and mine back in Lynden. We had a photo booth set up where people had to set up a pose for each month based on when their birthday was. The plan is to design a calendar with these photos (and scanned in missing people) on each months page.
The following Sunday we served cake (& coffee) to the congregation after the first service. My parents have been in the same congregation all of their married life & it's a large church. It was lots of fun talking to people I had not seen in years. The following day my parents had family and friends over for morning coffee & I got to catch up with many relatives. So glad I decided to fly out and so thankful that God has blessed Dad with so many years! More great memories!
