Fil's last day

Spread the love

Today is my Father-in-law’s last day of work.  After today he will officially be retired.  I think he’s a little excited.  So hubby and his sister decided to throw him a surprise retirement party Sunday.

I volunteered to make the cake.

Things have been crazy busy around our house; hubs & his sis decided on finger style foods & dips so my lovely mother came to our rescue and volunteered to make our food contribution.  Have I told you how much I love my mother.  She told us to worry about the house/lawn & the cake and she’d do the rest!

Our foods included:
Mozzarella Cheese Dip
Linda Evans Artichoke Dip
Hot Corn Dip
Jalapeno Bread
Deviled eggs
Cowboy Caviar

My Sister in law brought:
cream cheese/cheese wrapped in ham slices
pickle, cheese & Sausage

And there were a few other things too.

And I guess, there were only 2 retirement cards at Walmart.  Pretty much everyone got him the same card.  The other card was bought at the Hallmark store and it was the other one Walmart had :).

Here’s the necklace my Tbug made him.  She made his name upside down….  It’s cute and funny.

And she made him a book.

The other card.

The kids were outside playing on the tractor tire.

So anyway now we can all be jealous that he’s retired.  Happy Retirement Day!

  1. Congratulations to him!
    Food sounds great, gooey and delish.
    My father's retirement is looming and I worry he will be bored – doesn't have many hobbies besides golf.
    Thanks for stopping by to enter my giveaway 🙂

  2. I saw your cake on instagram (I think). Way to go!!! Having both of my parents retired has been awesome! They are available to help me out whenever I want!

    It looks like he had a great day! Thanks for linking up!
