Finally some scenes from the party last Saturday to celebrate Jason's 40th birthday....I still have no idea how that happened when I am still in my 20's....oh well!
Flowers from LM's neighbor's garden to decorate the table....the garage was perfect for setting up the food table.
Alison and Teddy....
Alison cooked great hamburgers and many other delicious foods
Sara and Samantha.....she was in a very shy mood that day....this too shall pass. She's a mini-me at that age, poor girl.
LM intently listens to all the family chatter, and Kristi thoroughly enjoyed her day, and looked so pretty in her matching turquoise outfit!
Two of my dear brothers....Sam and Ev
Teddy was enthralled by the balloons and thought no one was watching...
check out the foot as he contemplates his moves.
Nana and Teddy!
I love my brothers! Hate that awful orange fleece but it really got cool!
Cousins on the wall...Nate, Martin and Danny
They had a lot of fun skateboarding on Jason's precipitous driveway. Note the skateboard casualty. I believe Martin owes Nate a new board.
LM and Teddy at the wall....
Teddy and some friends with technology! He loves cell phones!
Trish shares a cuddle with Teddy
As we were getting ready to leave, Teddy was determined to squeeze himself between my car and his Daddy's car....quite the unsuccessful struggle!
It really was a lovely day, and I think you can guess that the little ones were the stars for the day.
Meanwhile, things are very busy at used to be Chez Ms G. Jeff and Laurie's wedding is Saturday (weather is perfect), the dressmaker is in the hospital so I've had to alter my dress myself (read, make it smaller!), and I am knee deep in another quilt project with a very tight deadline. This quilt is sort of a reprise of the wedding quilt I made for Jeff.
Thinking of everyone out there!
