I've finally had a chance to download and go through the images I took on My Honey's birthday. Above is the picture we took before our son, his family, and a friend came for dinner. Notice the calm, relaxed look on the Birthday Guy's face. ;)
This lovely centerpiece was sent from My Honey's family in Norway. We displayed it on one of my Mother's plates and I built the dinner table design around it. You'll note the table cloth changes during the day for dinner, dessert....
It's time to send the Birthday Guy out to grill the filets. Oops, I missed pictures of that. :(
This is the picture he took of grandson Alex. :) I just love these shots!
Aside: That tall ship model on the top of the television is the Christian Radich. The real one is a Norwegian training ship and the Birthday Guy's first ship way back in 1967. The model was an anniversary gift from me to him a few years ago.
Left side of table: me (talking, of course), Aunt Carol, David (who is always ready for a photo shot).
Right side of table: daughter-in-law Crystal (standing), daughter Catherine, granddaughter Anna, son Don.
Look carefully to see Penny entering the room on the far, far left. She is bringing us a toy. ;)
The grilling Birthday Guy is now on his third shirt of the day, this time matching David's shirt. ;) That's the third table cloth of the day, too.
What a marvelous day! We had a grand time, but we hope Birthday Guy Kjell had the best time of all.
We love you, Honey, Dad, Grandpa, Birthday Guy, Kjell!
