It was off Friday to Miller's Grocery in Christiana to celebrate "ole" Ern's 69th birthday which was topped off with his favorite milkshake from Culvers! Treating him and Rita was daughter, Megan Davis.
That night, it was off to Demo's in Lebanon with Paul and Connie Leyhew, Jimmy Mingle and Millie King for a supper celebration which ended with a ferocious Rook game or 2 o 3 back at Jimbo's.
Prosperity Baptist Church held their annual children's Easter Egg Hunt Saturday.
There was another birthday celebration and it was a surprise for Kizzie Lou Vance who turned a young 88 on the 28th. The celebration was hosted Saturday by her daughter, Janice and Charles Ritchey, grandchildren and great grandchildren. The event took place in the Auburn Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. There was a host of friends to include Wallace Hancock, Earl West and Dot West who were fellow high school graduates and Fanny Bell "Lizzy" (Pitts) Campbell who was a 3rd grade classmate that came by to wish her a happy birthday.
That afternoon all of our family was in Morrison at The Spot where we helped Rylon Morrison celebrate his 7th birthday. A fun filled time with the kiddos who spent most of their time playing in the inflatables.
Ruth and Marvin Davenport's Saturday guests were Mitchell, Veronica, Caleb and Kelsey Davenport of Hoover, AL.
Easter weekend was celebrated in Searcy, AR for Roger and Shirley Turney and Todd, Susan and Mackenzie Turney with Jordan and Lauren Turney.
Easter Sunday began with a Sunrise Service at Auburn Baptist Church where there was an estimated 200 who attended the early morning service. Prosperity Baptist choir performed "The Three Nails" and "Champion of Love" which was followed by a message from Bro. Bobby Nichols of Shiloh Baptist. Following the service, the crowd enjoyed the delicious breakfast prepared by the host church.
After regular church services, there were a lot of Easter eggs to be found. Allison and Waylon Francis, Londyn and Brooklyn Francis and Camila and Lucas Sandes found basketfuls in Bobby and Brenda Francis' yard.
The Francises emptied their baskets so they could fill them back up in Ernest and Rita Davis' yard.
The bunny left lots of eggs in the yard of Jimmy (Daddy Jim) Mingle's and the hunt was on following lunch for Easton Harrell, Oakley Fisher, and Dawson and Christian McCrary.
Jim and Donna Sherrell hosted their Easter feast. Joining them were Robbie Owen, Jim Sherrell, Clay Sherrell, Brian James and Candace Meyers. Robbie said she found the golden egg!!
All of our brood plus Jewell Dale and Brian of Tunnel Hill, GA, gathered in at Tim and DeAnna Reeds for a delicious meal. There wasn't an egg hunt but a "drone" hunt - yep that's right. Dustin Patrick brought his drone. However, it got lost in the clouds and went down in a field which required a couple of hours to find.
