Happy Father's Day and Happy Birthday party

I have to interrupt my postings from our vacation to say Happy Father's day to my father-in-law and Happy Birthday to my mother-in-law. We decided we needed to have the family over to our house to celebrate today. So we decided to have little snackie foods and then I made a cake(me and Duncan Hines that is). I was up at 6:00 a.m. today to get this done so I could go to church. I am happy to report I did make it to church.

The snackies we had were simple. Tortilla roll-up sandwiches with turkey, ham, cream cheese, a dollop of ranch dressing, chopped black olives and green chilles. Then we had fresh tomatoes from our garden with basil drizzled in balsamic vinegrette dressing. I sliced a couple of cucumbers from the garden and had ranch dip with those. Then just chips and dip. One of our sister-in-laws made a great bean/cheese dip.

My father and mother-in-law are wonderful people and have always treated me especially nice. I remember the night I married David, my father-in-law told me he hadn't lost a son but gained a new daughter. I thought that was so sweet.

Looks like you guys had a wonderful time together today. I still get totally confused about who is who in Davids' family.
