Family, Fun and some flowers!

It wasn't all work this weekend. We decided at the last minute to have everyone over for a cookout on Sunday afternoon.
All the kids were home.
The nieces were over along with their parents. This niece thought by looking away she could avoid my camera. Silly Allison:>)
There was lots of laughter, food and fun...this is wonderful niece Juju with Victoria.
And this sweet dumpling. Oh the cheeks, couldn't you just eat him up?
And Juju made these beautiful crochet flowers for my birthday! The photos don't even begin to show how pretty these are! The handmade cards are wonderful too. Thank you Allison and Juju!
I feel a project coming on with these:>) Stay tuned!

  11. Hi Kathy,

    What a fun and special day with your beautiful daughters and family. Gracious - what an adorable baby and fun gifts.
    Have a lovely week.

  12. I have to agree with the majority, Kathy. Your daughters are beautiful young women and that baby is gorgeautiful!! Is there a chance that an adoring Nana could get that pix in a printable form? I cannot get it to print from the blog. Don't you just love Juliann's flowers? I myself have an orchid, she said modestly! Love to all. LAS
