Faces I Love

The celebrations
have continued here
with surprise visits here
and Becky and I going to visit friends.
It's been a wonderful week seeing
those I love.

Here are a few snapshots
to finish up my

Love these faces.

Max couldn't wait for his gifts!

Sneaking some pictures through the kitchen window
of my kids doing a few chores.

Becky was done with my spy camera.

My beautiful sister, Valerie
and her wonderful husband, Jim.
Valerie had a liver transplant 2 years ago.  Amen!
Jim just turned 64 in November so Valerie
got him his T-Shirt.  It says:
"Will you still need me,
will you still feed me,
when I'm 64?"
Cute, huh?

My darling sister in law, Dianne
and my great brother, Terry.
She's trying to hide her braces. =)

It was the best of times.
Tomorrow, I have a hot date.
Two actually!
Don't tell anyone.
Their names are:
and Dryer!

You have a lovely family, and your sister is my wonderful friend.

I have laughed at the lat part of the post like a dummy. To cute. Love the names of your dates.

Your family is beautiful. Your sister looks really great. Loe the shirt your brother in law is wearing. How funny, that your sister in law has braces. I have been debating to get them for one tooth I have that has moved (yes only one) and feel I am going to look weird with them. But after seeing your sister in law I am definitely going to consider them.

Happy New Year. Have fun on your dates.
