Happy 1st Birthday Wade

Our wonderful next door neighbor's Tiffany and Doug's youngest son Wade turned "1". 

 We celebrated his birthday along with many of Wade's family and friends on Saturday December 9th.

The "Monster Bash" was a huge success thanks to his mom's creative decorations. It was so-ooo cute!


 Wade's Uncle Tucker made a special trip to the party with his firetruck!

 All the kids were thrilled!

 Thanks so much for inviting us to your party Wade.  We love living next door to you and watching you and your big brother Nolan grow up!

wine and yellow candles, 
O this is celebration enough

A Family Reunion in Sacramento December 2, 2017

 My brother Randy, my sister Jocelyn and I  had long wanted to have a family reunion with my 96 year old auntie Mickey who lives in Sacramento. She is the wife of my dad's late brother George. We were able to make this reunion happen this past weekend.

    We all met at noon at my cousin Richard's home.  It was the first time I met his wife Maureen and their son Ryan.  

 Cousin Karen and her husband Steve

 Looking over Auntie Mickey's family tree she has been working on for years.

The cousins had prepared lots of yummy food for our lunch

 We had so much to talk about and share

 Later we watched some family videos cousin Richard and Karen had made for Auntie Mickey and Uncle George's 50th wedding anniversary.

 Ryan gave a congratulatory speech to his grandparents while impersonating Ross Perot. Hilarious.

 lots of wonderful memories

In the evening Auntie Mickey's grand-daughter Hilary arrived with her two daughters.

 Here is auntie Mickey with her grand-daughter Hilary (top row standing in the middle) and all but one of Mickey's great grandchildren.

 Time for dinner

 and dessert...

 Hilary and her daughters made peach cobbler, chocolate cookies, sticky toffee pudding with whipped cream yummy!

 What a special reunion this was.  We hope it won't be too long before we can do it all again.
Love you Auntie Mickey!
