I Did It!!

After day's of planning...with attention to every single detail,
preparing, slicing and dicing
and making sure everything was was!!

It was perfect, because my boys were home!!

We were all together at the table, just the four of us!!
It was an amazing day. 

We talked, we laughed, we remembered the old days,
all the same memories we discuss each time we are together!!

Appetizers...always my favorite part!!

I did not get any pictures of got a little crazy.

I stuck to the menu,
and dinner was delicious!!

I did however get pictures of desert!!

Homemade Apple Crisp, it was yummy!!

Pumpkin Pie, the only thing I did not make!!

We celebrated Chucks birthday, we are finally, officially the same age!!

I had a video made for him, of our Hot Air Balloon Ride,
the video is amazing!!

It was a very special day for me...I will remember every detail forever!!
