Family, Family, Family!!

This last week a whole bunch of Iobsts came to Denver! My mother-in-law, JoJo Iobst, came to celebrate her 70th birthday. Joining the fun was her sister, Nan, my three beautiful stepdaughters, Marriah, Sarah and Hannah, and Marriah's boyfriend, Schno (pronounced Snow - he said he had hippy parents :0) ) and of course the three of us.
We laughed and ate and celebrated. We played games and visited and loved on one another, especially the patriarch of our family - JoJo. A sweeter woman never lived. :0)

So I am exhausted and happy. Relieved it's over and sad they left.

Here are some pics of the Iobst gang!

This was taken in front of the Flying W Ranch in Colorado Springs. We went one night for some western barbeque and music.

My three lovely stepdaughters, Hannah, Sarah and Marriah! They are each wearing heart necklaces JoJo gave them on HER birthday. :0) She is so kind.

Of course, our dog Scooby was a huge hit! This is Nan and JoJo and the dog! :0)

When JoJo was leaving she told us it was the best birthday ever in 70 years. Wow, thank you Jesus.

Memories of this 70th birthday will remain in hearts and minds. I pray that you will celebrate your mother-in-law's 80th and 90th, hey why not go for 100th.
