sunday afternoon we all gathered around the feast mom had prepared for us. the kids were over and even got to thank their aunt-in-law barbara for the great gifts she gave them last time we were home! it was, and always is, a great time spent with the family. diana got to spend some quality time with the girls, i got to spend some quality time with papa, and barbara got to spend some quality time with my friends. ok, that last one is a bit weird- but true! leaving time came too early, but i insisted. i had to get home to watch the oscars, after all!
