Celebrating Wilson Ramirez' Birthday

July 29, 2018

We celebrated Wilson Ramirez' birthday today! Wilson and Nancy, John and Jass Ortiz, Jaime Beer and Jacob Lentz (our grandson) joined us today.

Yvonne always tries to make a person's favorite meal for their birthday. After checking around, Yvonne found out for Wilson that was cheeseburgers and vanilla shakes. So that's what she made!

Jaime actually made the milk shakes...they were goooood!

Jacob, who is 8 years old, knew it was a "party" so he pulled out a lot of our board games and set them up all over the house for people to play. It was so cute! What a GREAT kid!!!

Jass played Jenga with Jacob while Yvonne was making the hamburgers.

Nancy and Wilson

We all sat down at the table...and trust me, the hamburgers didn't last long!

Sometimes I get tired of never being in pictures. So I had John take a picture of me trying to get my mouth around my hamburger. It was tough, but I got it done! :)

After dinner we watched the video of Nick Vujicic's testimony. He is the man born without arms and legs, but is so inspirational in the lives of so many others sharing his faith in Jesus Christ who gives him hope and purpose for his life! Awesome testimony!

After the video we prayed together and then Jass played tic tac toe and checkers with Jacob. John and I played our own game of checkers. Then after everyone left Jacob and I played checkers.

What a really fun afternoon!
