40th Anniversary Photos

Judy and George celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary on September 19, 2010. We had a little party for them last Saturday. They requested family only for this casual party, well + one dear friend. We were missing a few key family members, however, we partied on anyway.

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!

We started the party at a nice decent 2:00pm in the afternoon...

The gorgeous flowers were from More and More Flowers, thanks to a Facebook high school reconnection:

We also enjoyed delicious appetizers from Eat Your Heart Out Catering:

Mini Roast Beef and Horseradish Sandwiches

Crab Gougeres

Stuffed New Potatoes with Sour Cream, Olives & Sundried Tomatoes

Shrimp in Phyllo

Oregon Pear & Gorgonzola Bruschetta

The two-tiered Beaverton Bakery Cake was so pretty (and delicious)!

Some of the guests (Jeannie & Tawnjia) brought their really really cute disney purses. They got them this past summer at Disneyland. I want one!

The weather was perfect and the deck turned in to the most popular spot:


Danny, Uncle Bob, Norm, Dad & Tawnjia

Kathleen & Jeannie

Cake Time!:

Sammy gets the first piece?

Our present was a watercolor painting of Riley painted by a local Salem artist.

Actually, Riley wasn't feeling all that well that day:

 Chris and Akiko got Mom and Dad a gorgeous Ruby colored bowl from Tiffany:
(we actually put some rose petals in it, but shhhh, don't tell Chris)

A book from Aunt Sharon & Uncle Bob:

I took group photos as the guests left... of course Sammy was the first to head out. Why am I not surprised!

Actually this is my favorite photo, but my camera started going haywire with the lighting and focus so the quality isn't great, but I still love it. I should have taken the photos outside, but hey, hindsight is always 20/20.

(oh no, I think I was fiddling around with my camera too long, everyone except Kathleen looks like they are getting a little frustrated)

I had to kick on the flash, Norm & Peter (Peter always has an interesting expression)

Michael and I closed out the joint at about 9:30pm, no pictures of me, of course--just the way I like it :)!

Kari, until I read the caption I thought you had put potato chips in that bowl! (And thank you for picking it up for us, by the way.) Looking at all those canap├ęs and the cake made me hungry.

Oh my gosh, this is a milestone... you posted a comment on my blog. How exciting! When I went back and looked at the photo, I realize it does look like potato chips :). The party was fun and it was a beautiful day.
