The "After Party"

So after all that traveling we just had to get some family together to share pictures and stories, souvenirs, and of course a great sampling of the wonderful foods we ate in Europe and France. It's always great to have family over and just hang out together --- thanks you guys, especially for enthusiastically participating in the slide show of pictures (over 1000 of them.....whew that was a LOT of photos). You guys are the best and we love you tons.
Little goodie packages for our guests - treats from London & Paris (and bottles of sparkling grape juice to make a toast at the end of the party - hey, we have to be kid friendly and pregnant lady friendly around here - my sister, not me, just in case you were wondering).

Monika, Carley, Tim, Carlene and our dog Abby getting ready for the slide show.

Brenda and Monte - aren't they just precious! We had a great time with them staying here with us for a few days.

Michelle and baby Shayna. Look mom I can make a bow with your hair!

Let's take turns! Carley plays with Shayna's little car and Shayna tries to go round and round on Carley's sit-n-spin while uncle Todd encourages the fun!

Little ballerina girl sittin' pretty on daddy's shoulders. Notice the cool London shirt dad is sporting for the occasion.

Look at all that food! Croissants, tomato, mozzarella & pesto pizza, London style sandwiches with boiled eggs, turkey & ham, hot English tea......

Jeremy's mom Brenda and Jackie's mom Carlene - aren't they both just gorgeous! What a great photo.

Chris, Jodi, Carley and Monika ....and little baby Emerson in Jodi's tummy. We can't wait to meet you sweetie. We love you already.

....and Jackie making crepes with chocolate sauce and fresh strawberries - Yummy!

What a great day!
