There were some very distinguished guests who came, such as Sister Mary Norman, Brother and Sister Green, Brother Steven and Sister Rebekah Smith. We were very delighted with all who came and who celebrate with us…the Steinkes, the Yarboroughs, and many other families. It was a very enjoyable evening, including some songs (MC was Uncle Russell Wallace), slide shows, stories by people, Coffee, and gourmet cheesecake with a raspberry sauce and fresh raspberries, and tiramisu dusted with chocolate shavings. The desserts were absolutely beautiful, and very delicious!
After the festivities had ended, Serenity (who was playing babysitter and keeping Lydia quite entertained) had found a tiny rocking chair that had been Grandpa Peterson’s when he was quite small, and while everyone was busy re-arranging the replaced furniture, cleaning up the kitchen, and removing the projector screen, she was keeping Lydia busy by sitting her in the rocker and rocking her back and forth. It was so cute, and so Aunt Elisabeth and I both snapped pictures of it.
When they brought the piano back in, Serenity sat down at the piano with Lydia and was letting Lydia bang away while she played.
It was quite cute, and as up until that time, Lydia hadn’t really shown too much interest in the piano. She probably wasn’t ready for all of the noise that it made. Now she quite enjoys noise. I just hope Lydia enjoys music as much as Jordan and I do.
After getting home late, it was good to sleep in the next morning (I think we got home somewhere around midnight or so.) We enjoyed ourselves, and all of the leftovers (though I’ve yet to know who truly ended up with the rest of that cheesecake! Wow…good thing I snagged the recipe! :D) Happy 60th Anniversary Grandma and Grandpa Peterson!
