Our Wonderful Family Reunion......PERFECT!

The Gals relaxing on the Loggia...........


TABLE set for the first night's dinner PARTY!!



On the front steps of our childhood home.....the 5 sisters... Myself with 3 of the sisters with our Brother.........









WELL, my big weekend is OVER and I think it was a GREAT success! All of my SWEET family were here and we had a GREAT time together! We LAUGHED, we ATE, we WATCHED FOOTBALL, and most important of all, WE SHOPPED!!! I decided for the first night they were here to have an elegant dinner in the diningroom with fine china and the whole bit. I cooked our mother's favorite meal which was Roast Beef, Green Beans, Slaw, Scalloped Potatoes and Yeast Rolls with plenty of real butter! We had the best time sitting around the table and talking and laughing. It was a good start to a BIG weekend!










Saturday for the GAME , my husband, Mackey , got the best RIBS in town and we had those with more Slaw and STUFFED EGGS! Delish!










My sisters were sweet to bring some lovely desserts......Ann, brought a delicious Butter Pecan Cake....so yummy!......Sue, brought some wonderful homemade cookies that were to die for! Jeanne, brought a delicious Kahlua brownie pie with chocolate covered strawberries......yummy, yum!.............Jeanne also brought marinated shrimp that was so divine! We had plenty of wine and that kept us in good SPIRITS!










On Friday, my brother, Lane , came and chauffeured us around Gadsden in his mini van. What a treat! We went to our childhood home and had our picture made on the front steps......very sentimental! We toured downtown and other spots of interest that we remembered from our childhood days. FUN, FUN!










I think EVERYONE took home some great souvenirs of our SHOPPING and got things they love. ALL in ALL, everyone seem to have a great time together !










HOLD YOUR FAMILY CLOSE WITH BOTH HANDS!!! and I plan to!..................Have a great week all and GOD BLESS!!

What an attractive family. You all got more than your fair share of the 'good looking' gene. And your home is beautiful, as ever. Did someone say stuffed eggs? Butter Pecan Pie? Oh, now, I really wish I'd been there!!

I'm glad you all had such a terrific time. You are right...hold family close with both hands....
