Saturday and a party

It's Saturday afternoon. I just finished making an Ambrosia Fruit Salad. It has lots of cut up fruit, sweetened, shredded coconut, marshmallows, and sour cream. Very yummy. It was my contribution to a dinner tonight that we are giving my parents for their 60th wedding anniversary.

We had their 50th here at our house, and this time my brother, his family, my nephew, and his mom are doing all the work. Slide show of family photos, decorations, and the works. There will be a barbecue of tri-tip beef and chicken, beans, potato salad, green salad, and who knows what else. It will be delicious and I will return home so full and bloated. What a shame. It will be wonderful and miserable at the same time.

And don't forget the cake. My nephew got them one of those photo cakes. It will have a photo of mom and dad on the cake.

My hubby and I went in with my nephew and got them a new slim line tv. The 50th we also combined money and got them a smaller tv. This one is a lot better. They spend most of their spare time watching tv so it's a perfect gift.

I am not sitting in front of the computer and a fan trying to get dried off. I had my shower earlier but because of the heat, I feel like I just had another. I'm sure my hair will be just a beauty after the fan finishes with it.

Since no art today, I will see if mom and dad will let me post a photo of them tomorrow. If not, a photo of the decorations.
