Grandma's 80th birthday party-Mitton Adventure's part 2!

The next stop on our trip was Toronto. The main reason on which we took this journey was to help celebrate and honor a wonderful lady's eightieth birthday...she also happens to be our Grandma:)
Living so far away, our family did not directly help plan much of the party. A good deal of credit for the planning goes to some wonderful aunts, who really went all out to make it a memorable occasion!
The delicious cake!

Some of the treats...notice the picture of the wall? This is a picture of grandma when she was a bit younger.

Some of the decorations.(Aunt Lesley did such a good job making things look dainty and pretty, besides doing quite a few other things. The party would not have been the same without her!!)

Rachel, Sarah (a cousin), Grandma, and Aunty Kim

Uncle Larry, Grandma, and Crystal(a cousin)

Cutting the Cake:)

Grandpa and Alex,(a cousin), playing ping-pong. Grandpa won!! Grandpa has truly been a wonderful husband to Grandma: loving, kind, considerate, gentle and caring!

All the cousins but 4(not including those who have married into the family). "We are all here because of you, Grandma and Grandpa:)"
Ok: a bit more normal! We sure love you Grandma and Grandpa!!

When I think of Grandma, I think of someone who is funny, cheerful, and who loves to serve others.
This passage of Scripture comes to mind.
Romans 12:9-13
9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

 "The Virtuous Woman"

 A virtuous woman is one of a kind
The Bible says she is hard to find.
Her price is far above rubies, which are rare,
She must be handled with extreme care.

Her husband knows she’s a precious gem indeed,
He knows that she is willing to please.
Her children treat her with honor and respect,
They know that she always does her best.

A virtuous woman does all that she can,
She’s always there and stands by her man.
Though she’s humble and meek, she takes no mess,
You can count on her to pass the test.

You will know her when she passes you by,
For she always holds her head up high.
She’s courageous and strong, a dignified lady she is,
You will never know that she has shed many tears.

A lady of class and elegance too,
She will let you know what you will need to do,
To come up to her standard, which is very high.
For she is headed for her home in the sky.

So to the virtuous women of today,
Always remember the part that you play.
Just be Christ like, for He is the one,
Who gave His only begotten Son.

Happy Birthday Grandma!!
