family

My trip to New Hampshire is coming to an end. We are hitting the road today. This has been the most fun trip home for me, since the move to North Carolina. It's probably the most time I have spent with my sister since we were kids. As I have mentioned before we share a birthday. This year we celebrated two weekends in a row. This past Saturday, my parents, along with my brother and sister-in-law came to Wolfeboro for a family dinner.
We are a loud, noisy, French Canadian, family that is always talking over each others conversations... I think Jeff may be ready for some peace and quiet in Seagrove...
My great niece putting pony tails in my mother's hair... I don't think she would have let me do that when I was a kid. As you can see, Memere wasn't happy about me taking a photo and she would be mortified if she knew it was posted on my blog!

We actually were a small crowd this year, none of our kids could make it for dinner, although some of Anita's came later when they got out of work. The only missing sibling was my brother who lives in Alaska.

quick... blow out the candles before the house burns down

 
... and I opted to dye the dog black instead orange :-o

  2. Big family things are so weird for me. I'm an only child, so our house was always pretty quet, Gerry has a huge family and I always end up in the corner of a quiet room somewhere. It's overwhelming!
    Glad you survived the "storm of the century" !
    Happy birthday

  4. That looks like fun for you but being from a small family while having a huge extended family I can sympathize with Jeff right now. It may be fun to be with the crowd but it's also nice to balance that with the peace of solitude. The cake looks great.
