rich like melted malted...


for lack of a better title I borrowed from "throw mama from the train" thanks Mama!

ahhhh the weekend was exhausting but ohhhhh so rich!

My son is home from Iraq, most of our family gathered to welcome him home and to honor him accordingly as well as all the other veterans who took time to show up that day...a lot of talking and visiting...a little bit of joyous tears, many many stories being told and oh the beautiful SONGS that were sung!

My two daughters (yes, one of them is adopted) dressed in their finest...



Ummm I wonder when I told her she could have my beaded hair ties?
Silly Bella Donna thinks she can drive...

Even the dogs enjoyed the day!!!!

Glad you had fun...

Speaking of adopted daughter...my good friend is Native American...her grandmother passed and I went to the funeral...my friends mother insisted on me standing with the family...people were coming over and giving me their condolenses...I didn't want to be rude and correct them so I said Thank you...but when they walked away you can see them whispering...like "Whose the red head" So I became the "Adopted red headed step sister" I don't know why that picture and your comment made me thing of that...LOL!

I am so glad your son is home!

It sounds like it was great welcome home and an occasion for everyone to get together and have a good time. The only photo missing is of the food—there must have been food!

You say that Bella Donna thinks she can drive: how do you know she can't?
