I am finally able to share some of the things that happened before Thanksgiving. I know I shared a bit about my father-in-law's 80th birthday party, but I thought you might enjoy some of the videos. Don was completely surprised. He thought he was attending a kid performance at our church. He walked into a room with 100 people from every walk of his life - church, hospital volunteer, and family and friends.
There was BBQ - chicken, pulled pork, and ribs - and all the fixings along with plenty of iced tea. That food just seemed perfect for a man who is so pleasant and easy-going. Dave arranged for a women's accapella quartet to come and serenade Don as part of the evening's entertainment. Their name was Soundworks and they were awesome. In the following video the quartet calls Don up to be with them. Don, with his wicked sense of humor, decides to ham it up by hobbling up there like an old man. Funny thing is that he moves better than most 40 year olds. This is the video of "Ain't he sweet" where they fight over Don:
More videos can be found here from the party.
