Grammy Turns 80 years young!

It was a wonderfully warm day today here in the North East. I am crossing my fingers that spring is around the corner. I am done with snow for the year. According to the groundhog there will be six more weeks of winter, but who trusts a rodent with the weather...honestly.

We also had very nice day with my family for my Grammy's 80th birthday. I made a keeper for her to keep her keys on. She also received some really beautiful gifts including a whistle & many scarfs (Grammy will never experience a chilly neck again!) Here are some pictures!


B & I

Most of the Cousins & Babies

If I can say anything about my family its that there is never a dull moment. It has always been that way. My Grammy is the proud mother of 8, Grandmother of 13 (including me) and Great grandmother to 6. When you add spouses & significant others into the mix you can only imagine how many people there are at our gatherings! Between the story telling & catching up, babies running around and eating its a good time. My family is the best and might I say extremely good looking (but I may be a bit bias!) It was a good day and I cherish all my time I spend with them.

I hope you enjoy your families just as much!


Almost forgot!!! I made punch that got good reviews from the fam. Here is the recipe:

Sparkling Raspberry Punch

2 (10 oz.) pkg. thawed frozen rasperries
1/2 cup sugar
1 Bottle blush wine
2 cans frozen Cranberry Raspberry juice
2 (750 milliliter) champagne (I used 1 bottle champagne and half bottle ginger ale)

Combine raspberries, sugar and blush wine. Cover and let stand for about an hour. Combine 2 cans frozen juice (thawed), champagne and or ginger ale. Just before you serve combine 2 mixtures. Vvvwwwallaaa! Enjoy!
