Hello.  The long-absent blogger has returned.  (I must confess that we are finished watching all of LOST, so that won’t be keeping me busy at nights anymore.)  We have also been extremely occupied with “celebration season” around here.  We have had a total of six special occasions at our house in the last two weeks.  We clean house, cook food, serve food, celebrate, and repeat.

The first celebration was Theo's 2nd birthday!  Felicity planned a really fun party (hosted at our house) with a Noah’s ark theme!  Colette made the cake, and all the animals came!

She planned a menu with foods in every color of the rainbow and animal crackers too.

Present opening fun with Aunt Colette!  She gave him an adorable red car.  Vroom, vroom!

A big two-year old!

The next celebration was our actual 25th wedding anniversary.  We celebrated at home as a family, and our kids cooked us a delicious dinner.

Next was the pre-Easter breakfast from my last posting.

Then there was Easter Sunday!  We used the antique lace tablecloth, the new Limoges(!), and even the antique crystal salt cellars and sterling pepper shakers.

Colette made Lemon-Raspberry Coconut Cake for dessert.  Yum!

Moving on to the next life celebration…Felicity’s birthday!  Sadly, the only picture I took of her all night was with her cell phone, so I don’t have it to share.  But she liked the pasta wrapping paper on her present, being a self-confessed “pastavore”.

And last night, we enjoyed having an overnight visit from some friends from California.

Pardon me while I collapse from fun!
