Life is just a party, Baby!!!! least in August! What a wonderful whirlwind!

First, there was the annual Peds Care Picnic/"act like crazy people singing and dancing" afternoon, thanks to Doctors Riesco and Michaels as well as Jenn H, Tammy L and Jay! Thanks to my crazy Jennay for playing and acting a fool with me. It was a lot of fun to be with all of you that day!!!!! I am so lucky to work with some of the best people I know!!!

In keeping with that sentiment....Rosie and I had been thinking of throwing a little lunch for all my great supporters at the office. We were finally able to do it once she got home from her summer session at Georgia Tech. She and I had a great time getting the supplies and fixings. We took down a ham and turkey with sandwich things and she made TWO delicious cakes for everyone to sample. It was our small way of saying thanks for all the support and warm thoughts and prayers that have been sent our way during the past year and then some!!! You have all meant so much to me and my family. Sandwiches will never pay it back, but we wanted you to know!

Then, with Rosie still providing the inspiration, and most of the work!!!!!!...we had ANOTHER party. SO LOVELY! Fred-o was back home on break by then and together they put together a delicious menu of chicken poached in wine and tarragon, blanched asparagus in a vinaigrette, pasta salad, and desert of ice cream and brownies with all kinds of toppers. Not to mention the before meal snacks of humus, crudites, olives, chips and Bent's special mojitos!! THEN....they were the greatest hosts to the best guests ever!!!! Keeping everything going and everyone served! Thanks, lebchukens!! All my special supporters were able to attend! It was great to get to visit and laugh and for all my dear peeps to meet the other dear peeps that each had heard such great things about. Thanks to all of you for all you do, daily, and for sharing that special evening with me.

I was able to visit with the kids for the next couple of weeks. Dinners are always so much more delicious and fun when we are all together!!! They were busy bees doing all sorts of chores for us...inside and out. They were probably ready to get back to school to get a break!! And so they are...both returned to their schools...getting busy with their fall classes. I am so proud of both of them! Thanks, guys!!!

And now....23 years!! Yep, me and Bent...tomorrow. As he says...."Now, that's PRIME!!!!"

Enjoy the party - c
