Jump!



 "Look I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that
if you're alive and you've got arms and legs, you've got to jump around
a lot, for life is the very opposite of death,
and therefore you must at very least, think noisy
and colorfully, or you're not alive." -Mel Brooks

Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you're alive you've got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at very least think noisy and colorfully, or you're not alive. Mel Brooks

Happy Birthday Marilyn

On Saturday we attended a very special 70th birthday party for my childhood friend Marilyn. 



My friend Mary and I have known Marilyn since we were kids.  We attended Malabar elementary school, Belevedere Junior High and Roosevelt High school together.  Here we are at a Halloween slumber party when we were about 12 years old.

 

And here we are today at Marilyn's party 

 Wonderful to have such a long and loving friendship for over 60+ years.

The party was held at Marilyn's daughter Denise and son in law Chris's  home.   


 
 Marilyn comes from a very large and close knit family.  Lots of family members in attendance spanning ages 95 years to newborns.

























 There was an artist who was drawing caricatures of all the guests.  That was a lot of fun!




 A great night of reminiscing with wonderful lifelong friends.

Marilyn, " Happy 70th Birthday"  to someone forever young and beautiful!

A Happy Family Easter 2017

We were able to facetime with our grand-daughter Sofia on  Easter morning before she and her mom and dad left for an Easter egg hunt party at a friend's country home.  Sofia continues to make us laugh and to marvel at how quickly she is changing and growing.    Technology helps bridge the miles. 
Happy Easter to our little   22 month old Easter bunny!


Locally our family gathered for our annual Easter celebration at my brother  Randy's home.



 Thanks to Barb and Randy for once again hosting a lovely get together.
