26 December 2007

I'll start by saying how happy I am to be at home today. In my pajamas and robe in the middle of the day. It's raining and dark outside, but nice and bright here in my family room. I've had banana cream pie and apple pie for breakfast and lunch, but not too much. I opened all my gifts from my clients while listening to a John Mayer CD. I had a nice, long phone conversation with my sister Ilene in GA. I've been home alone until 10 minutes ago when Emily's dad brought her back home. I don't plan on getting dressed or doing one thing around the house. I think I'll write my thank you notes for all the gifts I received because I'll enjoy that. I'll catch up on the newspapers. Not so lofty plans.

Here's some pictures from my father's birthday party....

The table is pushed back and dessert is displayed.


A close up.


Appetizers anyone?


JD's first time at a family gathering.


Time to eat!


Happy Birthday. Make a wish!


Me and the folks.


My brother's kids with Grandpa.


Guess who?


My nephew and his girlfriend. What a cute pair.


The only ones to carry on the family name.


My mom cracking up. She does that a lot.


My sister Lisa's boys.


My brother, me, father, and sister.


My brother Steve and his family.


My parents with six of their grands. The other five live out of state and were missed.



A great time was had by all. I think this day meant the world to my father.

Well, Em's been waiting for me to finish up here so I can play the Wii for the first time. First I have to pick up JD. Yes, in my pajamas. Later!
