We were privileged to attend Brittany's Jr. Violin Recital. It was Beautiful and Jesus really helped her. Her reception was beautiful and yummy!

~GG'S 95th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!!!~
And Sunday night our family was to have a missionary service at the Friendsville Bible Methodist church.
~These are pics that Sarah took on the way down to TN.~
Abigail had been into a sand box full of water...and had ruined her clothes, so she was wearing Gramp's T-shirt. :-0 ~
She is a DEAR GODLY lady who loves JESUS and Pop Pop, and all of us ...her family, and everyone she knows with all of her heart!~
My Daddy Edgar A. Bryan... wrote this about GG's 95th birthday gathering...
"Just returned from celebrating Moma Stel’s (Martha’s mom) 95th Birthday - April 29. Can’t prove it but suspicion she set a record. She had 3 of her 3 children there and all 3 mates. She had 10 of her 10 grandchildren there and 6 of their mates - other 4 are alive but didn’t make it. She had 3 of 3 Roush g.g. (great-grandchildren), 2 of 3 Vernon g.g., 2 of 2 Hunt g.g., 3 of 4 Sams g.g. 3 of 3 Fulton g.g., 6 of 6 E.A.Bryan g.g., 2 of 2 L.S.Bryan g.g., 4 of 4 Hausman g.g., and 6 of 6 Dickinson g.g. Her only great, great-grand, Carson made it - sorry his mom couldn’t. (The above represents 16 weddings and 0 divorces - Praise the Lord.) There were 5 niece/nephews from her siblings, & 14 from her husband’s siblings. Friends, old & new, and church connections filled the number to at least 110. - eab, 5/3/17"

~Happy 95th Birthday Sis Scarbrough...on the church sign.~
My nephew videoed it...so this is a pic taken from that video. It was hilarious. Vonnie lost her flip flop in the middle of crossing the creek, and Andrew and Phillip tried to rescue it but Grant succeeded.~

~The Moma Bear and her 2 little cubs crossed the road in front of
Heidi, Katie, Kimberly, Sarah and Mary's car.~
~In the Cove ...Heidi let Mary sit on her lap and "drive" a little. :-) ~
Isn't this an adorable picture of them?
~It is in Washington DC ... but looks like Avonlea. :-) ~
THANK YOU, DEAR JESUS, FOR ALLOWING GG TO LIVE TO BE 95...

AND FOR ALLOWING ALL OF US TO GO TO HER BIRTHDAY GATHERING!!
