Wonder if it's true.......



...that laughing is like jogging on the insides??

If it is, we've just jogged a marathon.

Had the "kids" over for Mother-in-law's birthday celebration. Jenny & Brooks, our "adopted" kids that live next door..and the newlyweds, Jeff & Rachael. Along with Robert, Colette, Randy, Evelyn and I, we had a full house..



It starts out innocently enough...just relaxing after a long Monday back to work and a long day of shopping and visiting.....







Even the pups are relaxed after a long week of new people & new scents.. much of what we love about company is not their cuppa tea... Although I don't mean to imply we "smell" our guests...

Dinner plans made (Johnnie Corrino's - the birthday girl's pick) Mmmmm...Italian food....bring on the Balsamic vinegar and crayons! Oh, and the warm brownie sundae...with 7 spoons...




Grandma Evelyn gets a diamond butterfly necklace from Jeff & Rachael...way to score points there kiddos..








Is that one proud Grandma or what??

We all laughed until we hurt - each one telling another story that was funnier than the last. You know, the kind you "havta be there" to really appreciate??

"Rememberies" I like to call them.....what was your favorite birthday, best gifts....then "telling" stories on each other, the grandkids, when we were kids and when our kids were kids..
Yeah, the usual...the time-worn stories that will undoubtedly be told over and over again and again through the years, only to be laughed at just as hard (even when the stories get, um, let's say....embelished...)
















Say good night, Mr. B....and Lulu the Princess Warrior...

You have the best times with your wonderful family..I just love reading about your 'doings'. The 'newlyweds' certainly look happy; with you and Randy as role models, I'm sure they'll stay happy forever! Glad to see the pups in your pictures, of course (you know me). Love ya.
