paper chains and bunting, pretty flower arrangements, and old photos of Mom (thanks to a little help from my grandparents). We put on some Beatles tunes (Mom's favorite band growing up), and we were ready for a party!
The Homesick Texan's new cookbook) and Grilled Corn with Chili Lime Butter. I also made a pitcher of Watermelon Limeade and a pitcher of sweet tea (word to the wise - don't ever invite my family over for a meal if you aren't prepared to make sweet tea).
So with our first family event now a fond memory, here's looking forward to many more happy celebrations under our little roof!
