We did it, we did it.

We had our wonderful Easter celebration on Saturday. Most celebrate on Sunday, but with conflicting schedules with our 3 adult kids, we tend to be a little different. That way they can be with their gf/bf's families 
which makes everyone happy campers.
 Cousins Grant, Lenny, Kenny, my sis and hubby.
 Best Brother-in-law Bill, moi, cousin Jennifer.
 All that hard work looks so pretty.
 This one landed me a little "job". My cousin Kenny caters, and asked me to create a dessert table for a Bar Mitzvah next month. Interesting.
 Little NeeNee with her new "wabbit" from Sister Lolotte. Pink of course.
 My son Colt (18), and sis Deb. 
Sweet boy. Sweeter Aunty.
 Sister Lolotte (90), mom (92), 
Aunty (91) the birthday girl.
My daughter Brittany (22), and beau David .
She sang "Amazing Grace". 
What a voice.
 I dolled Sister up. So precious.
 Cousin Len, moi, cousin Lenny & cousin Nicole.
 Hubby Randy with our daughter Brittany.
 Son Riley (20), and mom (92).
 Host and Hostess, and little NeeNee
Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
We love you.
 Yummy colourful cosmos. 
A little too many of these perhaps?
 David, who is celebrating his birthday on Monday, and Brittany.
 Cousin Len, moi again and Lenny.
 Did I say I LOVE my cousins?
 Grandma (92) with granddaughter Brittany (22)
Only 70 years apart!!
 Two birthday cakes, Deb's famous cheesecake and fresh fruit.
 What's so funny Randy?
 Isn't this the cutest water bottle? 
 Little Louis all tuckered out.
 Party animal.
 Marshmallow on a stick. They were a hit.

 Cousin Kenny, Riley, and cousin Nicole.
 More sweetness.
Here's hoping you are enjoying a lovely family Easter dinner today with your loved ones.

Dear Claudie, I just caught up with your last three posts. Now I will go to bed and dream of lovely Easter photos and wonderful Easter marshmallow sweetness. I adore your family photos so much. Happiness abounds with a beautiful family who love each other. This is a very special blessing. The pets are all so cute as well as the stuffed ones. Your decorations made with love are awesome. Tell me, what will you do for your new job??? Big smile. Whatever it is I know it will be very special.

I called CC again but I haven't heard from her yet. I am making my reservations tomorrow. Yippee!
Goodnight my sweet friend.
Love and big hugs xoxoxo, Jeanne

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Claudie, mom ami, did it sound weird in French??? Just wondering! LOL! I don't know if my friend Patricia uses the translator or if she just reads in English.

I can't imagine how we all translate in Chinese. LOL! Maybe that's why we don't have any Chinese followers??? ;-)

Love you...


Sheila :-)
