The Googegs - Strangers in the World

The Googegs - Strangers in the World

Sunday, November 14, 2010


Gas cost $.31; bread $.21. Australia joined the Vietnam war and Malcolm X was shot in New York. Lyndon B. Johnson announced the new medicare program and on November 13, I was born.

Forty-five years later 6 kids baked and crafted like mad, while their Dad took me to Red Lobster. One of the best birthdays I have ever had.

Good thing they creatively put 45 on my cake. All those candles would have created a smoke screen.

They had a Bible open to one of my favorite verses: Hebrew 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. The kids had all made me gifts.

And baking! WOW.

More presents - even a map for a treasure hunt.

Some goofy presentations.

Sometimes - he can be a little ornery.

Everyone got active and these two caught some air.

I gotta tell ya, ALL boys end up in a wrestling match -- it's just how it is.

Poor Dexter, he really hates the sound of popping balloons.

Jerome really put effort into playing the guitar.

Braydon showed us how it is really done.

Everyone had a lot of fun.

Thank you family -- it was a beautiful day!
