the perfect excuse to get together and go to chicken mary's for dinner == janie and dennis had birthdays. as you can see from the bunch assembled, we had a great time and got to spend some good quality time together. during dinner, i was at the far end of the table from janie and dennis, so i didn't get to talk w/ them very much but did get the chance to say happy birthday and give hugs.
just in case you might not recognize people or know certain ones --
back row = jill campbell, dennis thomas, jeff friel, justin thomas, jerry friel (my hubby), regina thomas, jacob friel, chuck thomas.
middle row = evelyn friel, janie thomas and jessica thomas.
front row = raven warren, summer warren, and riahna warren (my granddaughters and daughter).
