Well, that's done!

The big "50" celebration is done, and life can get back to normal... thank goodness! 8-)
On Saturday it was my parent's actual anniversary day. We had a family day...
In this photo, after Mass, in private, my parents vowed their continued commitment to each other, and received a blessing...
After that we all came to our house for a BBQ. DH bbqing beef and chicken burgers... Mmmm......
Time to eat! 8-)
Raining outside, thus it was an indoor meal...
Wouldn't you know it, the only photo of me, and I was caught with my mouth full... Darn kids!
Mom and Dad cutting their cake for dessert...
The fur-girls were bombarded with attention... except while we were eating...
Sunday was the "big" celebration with extended family and friends...

This is it, our family here...
We took advantage of us all decked out to take a few family photos...

Our table at the feast... It was a lovely meal... Buffet style...
The kids table... They were sitting with my cousin and her hubby, but they stepped out for some "fresh air"... 8-)
DD2 and I had spent a few weeks scanning photos, and DD1 took them and made a wonderful slide-show presentation of them. It was a joy to watch! 8-)

All in all it was a great weekend....

Off to do the laundry now...
Happy stitchings! 8-)
