Family Celebrations

I got back home last night from Nevada.   We sure have had a busy month with all of us going here and there and back  again.   I had a restful, quiet  day today, which felt very  nice and I  am enjoying sitting here catching up on a little blogging.  I thought I would post  some pictures from our trip.  As I mentioned in the previous post, we celebrated Thanksgiving, and then went to my brother Dave's wedding.  Steve and I also celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary.

This is my brother Dave and his fiancé Elvia on Thanksgiving.

This is my brother Dave and his bride Elvia two days later.  Aren't they sweet?

It was a very precious wedding ceremony at the church, and a lovely reception afterwards.

These little treats were  too pretty to pass up a picture.  As you can see, yellow was the theme color.  I felt a longing to start painting in yellow after I took these pictures...  my fingers are itching.

These are my nieces Rachel and Jessica; and aren't they beautiful?

 Luke with his cousins,

 ...and his grandfather (my Dad).

Jessica, Anthony and Rachel 

 My gorgeous hubby of 33 years  and Eddie

 Mom and I

 Steve and I celebrating 33 years.

 Dad and Kathy (I love Dad's smile... he's so cute).

There are those yummy cookies again 

Steve and Dad (they are starting to look just a tiny bit tired by this time, don't you think?).

 Luke with his Grandma

 The food was wonderful

A new family.  Congratulations you guys.

Jessica and Luke and a friend went hiking up the mountain to catch up with the moon.

They had some fun capturing it.

Jessica said "we took the moon.... but we put it back".  She said "it tastes like the middle of an Oreo Cookie...really"  She makes me laugh.  Thanks for letting me snag your pictures Jessica.

Here are a few pictures at my Mom's house;  I wanted to show you a little bit of her pretty home.
Mom was blessed a couple of years ago with an opportunity to buy a new (at least new to her) home.
She has had fun decorating it.

 She always has pretty flowers in her house.... and I think I have inherited the love of flowers and pretty things from her.
The wall behind this Buffet Table is awaiting a painting that I have started, but haven't finished.  It is a huge canvas of tulips.

This one came out a little blurry, but I liked her lovely fireplace.

Mom got most of her furniture at a used furniture store.  She has found some amazing pieces and lamps and accessories at very low prices.  This couch was a one of a kind that she found there... and not only does it look beautiful, but is so comfortable... and made a great bed for Eddie.

Thanks for enjoying with us.  Have a great week everyone.
