A happy post in the middle of everything... My brother and Emily got married last weekend- a very joyous event on my side of the family in the midst of sadness on Brian's. We tried to balance celebration and heartache. Friday we flew down to LA and back that afternoon to make the Rehearsal Dinner at my parents house. My parents did a great job planning a festive backyard BBQ on July 1 at their house and we toasted (and roasted) my brother and his bride-to-be.
The girls insisted on sitting on Jannie's lap and then Maisie was set on having her PJ"s on but no one else could do it but Jannie. She was a good grandmother and marched the girls upstairs for PJ's but we had to hold the toasts to wait for her!
