Happy St. Patrick's Day

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
From our home to yours -
Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Mardi Gras Celebration

Each year we celebrate Mardi Gras, usually the Saturday before "Fat Tuesday".  This year was no exception.  We celebrated last Saturday. 

We love to be surrounded by those that we love to enjoy good food, wonderful drink, and music from our beloved New Orleans.
Our friend, Robin, contributed a delicious bouillabaisse to the meal.  Here "Chef Robin" is being silly and giving his fabulous creation a little taste.

Happy Mardi Gras everyone! 
Laissez les bon temps rouler... That means - Let the Good Times Roll!

Adoption Day - 2011

16 years ago today the heavens aligned and this beautiful boy joined our family.
Each year we celebrate this special occasion at a restaurant of John's choice.  He usually chooses Rudy's - Home of the delicious "baseball cut" sirloin steak!
Hmmm.. when did the son get as tall as the father???
Nah - not taller than Mom.  I was just too lazy to stand up from the dinner table.  Ha ha!
Richard makes a toast to our beautiful boy and that special Adoption Day in 1995.
And I'm just a very happy Mommy.
The day this child came into my life was one of the best days of my life.  I don't know how I ever survived without him.  He has always been - and will always be - the light of my life.  I love you John - Together forever - a family we will always be!
