To kick off the celebration, Saturday evening we ate dinner at our favorite restaurant, Ruth's Chris! We've had many a celebratory meals there together, so it was the perfect place. We even requested our favorite waiter, Curtis.
His wife hand picked these beautiful flowers from their personal garden to be at our table for the occassion!
Husband and I love Ruth's Chris :) yuuummm....I could eat there everyday. Can I play the pregnancy card to request a filet for dinner every night??? OK, how about at least after I give birth? :)
My mom came up with this fantastic idea for an anniversary gift...a few months back, she sent letters to over 60 of her parents friends, telling them that their anniversary was approaching and that she would be making a book of letters from all of their dear friends. She got an overwhelming response of replys, and was able to gift them this very special and memorable book!
We all had a fabulous evening looking through the letters of response and reading their thoughtful words and favorite memories of my grandparents. It was one of the best gifts I've ever seen!
And finally, on a baby note, Lil' Pumpkin is a BOY! (check out Friday's post if you haven't already read it). My sis and her husband gifted Punk' with these super cute outfits...
When my grandmother was pregnant with my mom, she bought this beautiful receiving blanket at L.S. Ayers (when it existed back then!) and brought her home in it. Well, it was handed down to my mom when she had all three of us girls, and was gifted to us to use when we bring Lil' Pumpkin home from the hospital! It will continue to be passed around to each of us girls as we produce them more grandchildren :) What an excellent family tradition! Kind of a wedding "something borrowed" thing!
