though dorie's birthday was thursday, the whole famn damily congregated saturday for the big celebration. here you see all 33 of us... kids, grandkids, and great grandkids together. over 100 people shared in the festivities, and dorie talked to every one of them... she kept saying, "i didn't intend to get this old!"
i love this pic of dorie with me, stephen, mom and pierce. clearly, we were having a good time. (this may be pierce's first appearance on the blog... he's also my little bro... and also not so little.) poor dorie was tuckered out by the end of the party!
