"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

50's Sock Hop Birthday Bash!

For Mom's birthday, Jamie and I wanted to do something fun for her. Our Mom is the greatest, and the best Nana too, and we couldn't wait to put together a little family (sadly, minus 2 important members Jacob and Brooke!) surprise party for her! Jamie, and her creative self, came up with a 50's "Sock Hop" theme! You could say, we went a little crazy! While my parents were away for the weekend, we decorated their house with 50's themed wall hangings, and set up a soda fountain/ice cream sundaes station. We thought it would be fun too to show up in 50's costumes, including the kids! Jamie made Hannah a poodle skirt, and I got the boys white t-shirts, and slicked back Carson's hair, he was so into it!
Tanner and Hannah posing in their 50's costumes! Rolling up my jeans, and throwing a scarf in my hair was enough of a costume for me, but Matt took it to the extreme with his "Nerd from the 50's" outfit. I was laughing so hard when he came out of the bedroom with his costume on, complete with nerdy glasses, and pens in his shirt pocket. He was quite the nerd alright! :) Jamie, Will, and Hannah had awesome costumes too! My sweet Hannah Grace! All of us decked out! Nana and her precious grandkids! After some fun photos, we headed inside to begin making our diner food for dinner! Carson and Hannah sipped on their soda fountain drinks (aka water!). Diner food - yum! Hamburgers, Chili dogs, onion rings, french fries, and baked beans: Our root beer floats and ice cream sundaes were a big hit too. We had lots of ice cream toppings and the kids especially liked this part of Nana's birthday party.

We love you Mom and hope you had so much fun at your Sock Hop Birthday Bash! Happy Birthday!
