As I mentioned in yesterday's post, last night I headed home to attend my Grandpa's awards banquet for the Indiana Dental Association. This is the second year in a row we have attended this event for his acceptance of an award.
This year he received the American College of Dentists Ethics Award. If you have super vision, you can read about it in this picture...
This is a picture of my Grandpa after he received his award and gave an exceptional acceptance speech. He had so many kind things to say about others and did a phemonimal job without using any notes! We are all so very proud of him!!!
After the award ceremony, we all went down for the dinner. They had a huge buffet with roast beef, chicken, fish, and our most favorite...mashed potatoes served in martini glasses. It's like a Mashed Potatoe Sundae bar!
The three girls! We all love our husbands/fiance, but it was so fun to have just the three of us girls together again without any boys :)
I have about 10 pictures of my sisters and I acting goofy, but to hang onto some dignity, I'm only posting one. For some reason, we felt that this was an appropriate time to take each others pictures on our cell phones for when that person calls.
We had a fabulous evening! What an honor it was to get to share in the celebration of my grandfather and his accomplishments. We were so glad to get to be a part of this special evening with him, and are so very proud of his hard work and dedication to dentistry, teaching, and all of his coworkers and patients over the years!
On a final note, my sister (who is an art guru) made me this pumpkin stamp! She used it on the homemade Mother's Day Card and gifted me the actual stamp she carved herself! We have been calling our baby Lil' Pumpkin since my Dad used to call me "punk" (short for pumpkin) and also because our baby is due in October. So that is why she created this Mother and Baby Pumpkin stamp! Thanks, Gebbs!
