Do big sisters always get to drive?
…..guess they do!

I was just meandering through some photos I had scanned a while back.
Seeing Diana and Tina made me think of our trip to GA for Kendyl’s birthday. 🙂

Happy Easter!

Boy! We didn’t have much time between St. Paddy’s day and Glorious Easter.

Easter Eve we invited Gram and the Wallbillichs to stay over, just in case the Easter Bunny stopped by. 🙂

We had 17 for dinner. (18 if you count Jack)





Thank you all for joining us on such a beautiful spring day.
Happy Easter.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day !

At the after Christmas sales, Christine bought a “Santa” pan for me. It is the type that Santa is sitting up.
She got all fired up that I should make a Leprechaun cake for St. Patrick’s Day. (note a raised eyebrow on me as I say that!)

So! I baked a Dunkin Hines chocolate cake and Christine and I dove in! I wish we had asked Bill to get a photo when we were 1/2 of the way into this project. ( It is hard to work when you are laughing that hard)
There was leaning and finally Santa-Leprechaun pitched forward. Gram arrived in a nick of time (no pun intended) and applied ‘gold’ from ‘the pot of gold’ to the base of Santa-Leprechaun.
To which he responded by tipping back!
We settled him down for a long winter’s nap and finished him up.
Topped him off with a proper hat.
Lots of laughter and well, he doesn’t look half bad! Chris says it is the beard, but I think it is the hat that gives him that Leprechaun look.
I definitely need to work on my technique with the green coat frosting!
Jack couldn’t believe his eyes!
(What every good post needs is a photo of Jack. :))

The “March Birthdays”

Monday, March 10th, 2008

This is a special year for the celebration of the “March Birthdays”. Julie celebrated her 30th !
We surprised her on Friday the 7th.Jules was surrounded by loving family and friends. 🙂And was helped with blowing out the candles by Will, ever eager to help out with cake. 🙂
On Saturday we pulled together another party for the “March Birthdays” proper.
Chowder, clam cakes, steamers and lobster were the main attractions for dinner…well for the afternoon of munching. 🙂 Tina has a fabulous recipe for chowder that was once again a big hit.
Bev, Dave and Great Gram arrived for the festivities.Julie appreciated her new step ladder.Will loved his new Knight Armor.And we all enjoyed the grand kids. 🙂

Wow!

Sleeping with the pack.“If Moses supposes his toesies are posies then Moses supposes erroneously.
For no body’s toesies are posies as Moses supposes his toesies to be.”
