Dad's Birthday Party

Well the weekend is over and it went by very quickly. Mom and I surprised my dad Friday night for his birthday. Sat. we spent preparing for the birthday party we were having for him that night. We had about 20 people and my brother fried catfish, fries, and home made onion rings in the turkey frier. We had an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen which is a real treat for us, because the closest DQ is over an hour away.
Sunday Paul stained my parents deck and my family went to church. We helped with the church clean up. In the afternoon Paul, his mom, my parents, and I cleaned the hall where the reception will be held. I figured if we did it the weekend before, we wouldn't have to do all the work the day before the wedding. So I was really exhausted, but better this weekend than next. Today I slept in (8AM) and now mom and I are going to decorate at the hall and church today. We'll have more to do on Friday after we get things set up, but we're going to do it in stages so we're not so exhausted on Friday.
I'll post pictures after the ceremony, hopefully we'll have lots to share.
