Happy Father's Day Honoring Gary

Tonight, the Saturday before Father's Day, our family had a Father's Day dinner in our home honoring Gary. Aaron worked a 12 hour shift today and other extended events made for a busy Father's Day weekend. Dinner was a simple menu of New Orleans Creole Chicken Sausage Gumbo made with some of Samantha's Dad's home grown okra. Served with steamed rice and fresh wheat french bread and butter. I also made a Martha Stewart recipe, Chocolate Brownies, hot out of the oven with Blue Bell vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, whipped cream and a stemmed cherry. We were not counting calories tonight!

Gary has been a wonderful Father to our children. He deeply loves his children. His wisdom and guidance and Godly example truly makes him a great leader and "Dad".

We are happy to have a soon to be, daughter-in-law, Samantha Jackson, mother of our new little Abbey, also present at the dinner party tonight.
