Family Ties

The perfect ending to a FANTASTIC weekend...
dinner with my sister Gina and our mom and dad.
We were not celebrating anything in particular... Our toast was "To life and its great surprises!"
And I was, once again, reminded of what a blessing it is to have my family around the corner.
Gina and Kelly Clarkson and I had a bit of a dance fest after dinner...
But Allison has warned me to never post pictures of me dancing again.
The photos taken of us tonight reminded me of why.
And of course we had an incredible meal! Manicotti and salad and lots of bread...
I baked some cookies and my mom brought this gorgeous chocolate cake.
I ate a sliver with a good Chianti...
(I couldn't resist that one)

Those heart-shaped cookies look yummy.

Good decision to forgo dance photos.

I'm very disappointed you didn't post the dance pics...those 15 or 20 shots I took of you and Gina dancing were all 'adorable'...except for the one...OK nevermind!
