Our family weekend of partying went off without a hitch. Well, I say without a hitch. We are super worried about Christine again. She is back in the hospital where she has spent the better part of 2007. Of course, Baby Sam and Matt couldn't come and leave her! We missed them terribly but Jack was here to represent them. He sang a solo "Happy Birthday" over the PA and we are thinking American Idol needs to lower the age limit. Jordan, JorJor, was not able to come either because she is a star soccer for a major university and had a game. The first family grandson in law was unable to take another day off after our beach trip so we missed him too! Other than that all the grandchildren and great grandchildren were present to wish Nana and Poppi and Happy 65th anniversary and Poppi a happy 85th birthday. Church family surrounded our own family in a little celebration that was most enjoyable. It was pretty low key considering I could have rented the town hall and declared it a local holiday!
Of course I was grinning from ear to ear because I had an arm full ( literally ) of my babies all day. Let me just say, it doesn't get any better than that. Good friends, good food, good health, lots and lots of babies everywhere. This is all the result of my sisters and I. There are only 3 of us! And these are our children and grandchildren . Someone said that our daddy must have told us to go forth and multiply. And we did.
