Our holiday and birthday ,graduations,and anniversaries,wakes, First Communions, Confirmations,Military send offs is always at her home. Unfortunately, just before every got there, my sister had a cardiac event. We always do a buffet, which is easier with so many people, and it's
Hi everyone, I have been checking in this morning to catch up. I haven't been able to post since the holidays because of families health issues. My mother was the host for family celebrations, Christmas, Easter, 4th of July, Memorial day, Christenings,First Communions, Confirmations,Wedding showers,Baby showers,graduations,Military. If there was nothing notable happening she would make up anything to celebrate. "Any of my grandaughters want to garden with me, and have lunch?" She passed on last winter, and my sister took on the hosting,at the same house. Because of the size of our family, its a controlled buffet for the main course an sides, everyone chooses ahead of time what tey're bringing. Appetizers and deserts- whatever you want to show off,bring it on! Just before most of us were there, my sister had a cardiac event,had fainted, and the EMT's came. T.G. She's O.K. now,she spent a few days in the C.C.U., and is doing well. The food didn't go to waste as it was there for visitors etc. That sister, and another one are celebrating birthdays at the end of the month, so we'll give it a go again. I have a few hours free tomorrow, so I'll get up to speed with all of you. Oh, I dragged out the Christmas tree this morning, always bittersweet for me. Take Care, B.G.
