The party

Thank you for all the wishes on my mother. She definitely has dementia and they are doing more neurological tests on her.

The party was a huge success. I'll post a couple of pictures below for everyone to see (everyone had a great time).

I really wanted to start my TR this weekend, but I have an entire house to clean after having 60 people here yesterday so please bear with me.

Okay...party time:



Mark and his longtime friend, Ashley (who is marrying one of his very good friends):



Andrew's Godmother and my co-worker and very good friend, Mary and her husband Ken



Alisha and some of her bridesmaids



Mark and Alisha



Alisha's family (minus her brother who could not come as he was away with his girlfriend for her birthday and proposing to her)



Opening presents:



With Alisha's Great Aunt and Uncle:



My wonderful family:



With Mark's best friend and Best Man, Steve and Steve's fiance, Rachel



My baby and me:

So sorry about your mom, Kathy. You've had a lot to deal with this year. At least you have a lot of good things to look forward to, like your December Disney trip and the wedding! Looks like the party was a lot of fun!

The party looked like a success!! Way to go, Ms. Kat!! Love the pictures.

No worries on when you start your TR, you have a lot of other things on your plate and mind right now. We're all here, not goin anywhere.

So sorry to hear about your Mama. I wish I knew what to say to heal your heart over this.

Love the photos, Kathy...you have a wonderful family!

You have been through so much this year. We found the planning of Mia's wedding brought back joy again (after a couple of years of profound grief)...it is such a joyful event and brings new life and a sort of healing (or at least softening) of the difficult times. I am so happy you have Mark & Alisha's wedding to look forward to - very exciting time!

....And you have a magical Disney birthday surprise in just a couple of months!!

Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos! Everyone is smiling and happy and glad to be there - what a great day! And you even had a hidden or not so hidden Mickey make an appearance with your napkin holder!

You looked lovely in your pretty sweater and sweet smile.
