This weekend we are celebrating the 90th birthday of El Jefe's father, "Dutch". It has turned into a big family reunion as folks come from all over Texas and even Florida for the big bash.
Everyone's been asking, "Is it a surprise party?" Well, probably! Dutch doesn't have much short term memory left these days, so although he's been told about it many times--the party is likely to be a surprise!
Dutch lives with El Jefe's sister and her husband nearby. He has slowed down and needs assistance but we are blessed to have two wonderful women as his practical nurses and companions. Dutch has always enjoyed being with people, so he should have a good time.
Saturday afternoon the big event is Chez Grace--with barbeque and all the fixin's and, of course, the famous Texas Chocolate Sheetcake and birthday cake from Moeller's bakery in Houston. Festivities commence at 5 pm so we won't wear out the birthday boy.
My guests will be leaving Sunday--so I'll check back in after the weekend.
