Here's to Sisters, and a safe landing at Sacramento Airport. Looking forward to visiting Mom and Tim.....they've been through alot lately

Lori's home was warm and cozy, and I loved her Drapery Panels

I always try to talk Lori into buying this table set...she never sees eye to eye

This photo is at Mom and Tims backyard. He would soon be slaving over a hot BBQ, flipping some New York and Rib Eye Steaks...yummmm

Moms home was large and comfy, too. This great room was in the middle of , what we referred to as the East Wing and the West Wing. Mom had our guest room ready with a darling Guest tray, complete with family photos...thanks Mom

This Apron was made my her grandaughter, Michelle. See, she really does use it!

The front of Moms home, we finally were able to take pictures when the rain let up. and boy did it rain ....it was freezing up there in Stockton, and I had a very bad cold to start with. But no way was I going to stay home

Our last night there we had Dinner at Lori's house, and what a cook my sister is! Homemade mac n cheese, a beautiful spinach and bacon Quiche, Beef Ribs, thick slices of rustic yummy bread with butter, and last but not least , a Greek Salad that our sister Carrie made. We ended the evening cramming together on the couch for yet another pic....I so enjoyed my visit with my Mom and sisters, and I'm sure our Mom will be sharing her story about a fun shopping experience she had that week-end, as she sat like a queen Bee, while Lori, Carrie, and I put together outfits complete with scarves and jewelry........we laughed, had lunch....and shared some strawberry Martinis. A great reunion. Lets plan the next one soon

Sheryls 31st Birthday, 2011

Celebrating a bit too much, Salvo?
Mother of the Birthday girl, and Mother In-law

Leo sees himself on video

Is that a beer in Nestor's hand?

Happy Happy Sheryl

A good time was had by all for Sheryls Birthday. Salvo showed Leo's first year DVD on the screen, and Gammy made Avocado and Shrimp Crostinnis. The Giacalones came from Apple Valley, and Uncle Gary came along with Kelsey. Love this Pic of Linnie and Nestor. I'm sure Salvo will regret posing with a cake plate on his head.

....Nestors Graduation Party...YAY

Nestor Graduates from Cal Baptist and we all celebrate with awesome homemade food from his family. His Mom and Dad, and sister , chopped and diced, and Bar B Que'd for a backyard filled with about 70 hungry friends and family.....Aside from Nestor being the star of the day, that prize would go to his Mom, who is a fantastic cook......Lindsay did alot of translating that afternoon, but I held my own, I'd like to think, anyway.....my high school Spanish comes in very handy, and especially around good food......oh yes, and there was cake.....yummy cake, and just eneough for everyone to have a piece. Kevin and I did our part with providing the space for tables and chairs, and a small space for some groovy dancing. We are very proud of our Nestor, and he tells me he is researching just the right career for himself. He will be top notch, whatever he decides.
