Last Saturday we celebrated a combination of birthdays at my daughter and son-in-law's home. It's a warm and cozy place to be. Cristal has different coloured plates, red, yellow and tan, and loves to combine them in different ways. The table looked so cheery I had to take a photo.
She used different napkins (including the ones I made for her) as placemats. This printed one is from a set I bought in Avignon.
After dinner and presents we connected the computer to the television and each shared some summer pictures. Cristal and Gerry went to Paris, Holland and London, Travis and Katie to Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Island, Ashley to Estonia, Finland and Sweden, and Tim and I spent the summer sailing around the islands here.
All those countries makes us seem really well-traveled - but these were big trips for the kids and likely not to be repeated any time soon...although we all have dreams.
