The Big Party - Day 1

It's been a busy day but a happy one. The boys and I had our usual play day. Judy was here just after 5 PM. Harry made a big beef pot pie and curried fruit for dinner. All the kids were here. The only thing missing was our little granddaughter and her dad. I think I told you that Judy is able to spend the weekend with us while she's in a two week training class being held in Atlanta.

I'll post more pictures when things are calmer - rest assured we are taking many. You have all seen pics of the local kids and grand kids - I wanted to post a picture of our grown up little girl. Here she is:
There was a Lego building party tonight. At least two moms were deep into the action. If you don't believe it just look how intent on the project they are.

Yep, that's my steam cleaner in the background. Ya just never know when ya might need it.

Our oldest son, Joe, stopped in to say hello and visit for a bit before he left for his evening plans. You know how single guys are - I just don't ask.
The boys were being best buds.
Baby Hooper and Dad were watching the action
Mommy was watching, too.

Hmmm . . I must have missed the joke. Looks like it was a good one. (You already know Mary)
Just enjoying the time with family. This is Keith.Harry and I are just about the luckiest two old farts around. Just think tomorrow is the real party. It is past midnight - gotta get to bed.

I hope each and every one of you is as happy as we are tonight.

Your daughter is just beautiful, but then so is your whole family. I love the ones of the boys hugging but then little boys are a little special to me.
But so are little granddaughters, lol.
Wanted to tell you how much it meant to me for you to take time out of your lovely family time to come check on me. Meant a bunch and made me smile, thank you.
Happy SUNday!

What a completely beautiful family you have Mary. Your daughter is of course, just like the rest of you...beautiful with a most genuine smile, but why not? They have you for a mom.

I hope you are worn out from too much party tonight, too much love, too much fun.

Happy Sunday!
