This weekend we celebrated my Grandma Wangen's 75th birthday. My whole family was there minus two cousins along with lots of friends. It was such a nice time, and what a well deserved celebration for a extraordinary women. She is the most accepting, fair, person I know. She is the calmest, easy going Grandma I've ever met.  And never, ever say you are bored around her because she will quickly put you to work. I learned that early in life.  I'm so thankful for her and the legacy of family and faith she has passed on to us. 

As part of the celebration my cousin Cassie put together this great slide show DVD. It was so fun to watch and when we looked at all those old pictures the thought that kept coming to my mind was family. It sound like such a cliche' but it is a legacy of family you can just feel and that words really don't do justice. Thank you Grandma for everything you've taught me and for just being you. I love you!

Your grandma is a sweet lady! I swear she hasn't changed in looks in the 30 years I've known her! It's great that we have such times of celebration to remember how important family is and the legacy people have shaped for us!!
