A lovely Family Day

We had only been home from our trip a few days when we were graced with a short but sweet visit from daughter, Anne. She came up from FL for just a few days while her husband David was joining some friends on their annual climb of Mt Washington in NH.
We picked her up on Saturday evening and son, Jason joined us for a delicious seafood dinner.
On Sunday, we all spent the day together at Jason and Alison's, and Teddy was so excited to share all his toys with us.....he loves the Etch-a-Sketch. I remember when his Daddy did, too.
We had a little preview of Samantha and Teddy's Halloween costumes...Samantha loved her cat ears. Teddy not quite changed yet, having a story and taking a cellphone call with a very special visitor (a photo coming up).
There he is, the cutest little chicken ever!
I love this shot....he was getting very tired, but not so much that he couldn't clutch on to LM's cell phone, waiting for a funny.
Mom and Teddy.....lots of fun.
The rear view of the outfit was so cute and poufy.
After a little nap, Teddy was ready to join us at the beautiful table for a lovely meal, prepared by Anne and Alison.
Our very special guest was Anne's best friend from grammar school, Donna. She was always a special favorite of mine and we were just delighted to have us with her on our "family day."
Sara and Samantha get ready to have dinner.

Before the little ones "went south" we made an effort to get some family photos in the front yard. My BFF stopped by, too. That is Sue in the orange sweater talking with Teddy & Samantha. Don't I look just like Lurch from the Adams' Family with my horrid haircut. What a disaster.

Our generous hosts!
Later in the evening when all the "girls" were visiting, LM took the following pictures. He got some sweet shots....T handing LM his phone.
Anne's husband David arrived late in the day and it was such fun to have a little time with him.
Along with David came my grandson, Matt, and his mom, Missy who was just so kind to bring everyone down.
Nap time???
Samantha and Teddy really had fun playing and sharing very nicely.

I think this is one of my most favorite pictures of the day. Sweet cousins.All, too soon, it was time to say good-bye. Such a lovely day, and having all my children and so many grandchildren together made it all perfect.
