family, cake & roses

My dad was the first one inside. Everyone came over to see our new home!
My sister Kathy is visiting from Connecticut and yesterday was her birthday! Before we went out to dinner to celebrate, the entire family came over to our new little house in NW Bradenton. Kathy & Ian had never seen it and mom had only seen it with no furniture, before we moved in.

My nephew Ian, me, my dad, my sister Kathy, and my mom with Chloe.

It's really been fun to have my immediate family all together this weekend!
Look at my proud papa with his 2 daughters : )

This is a little blurry, but it's still so much fun to have Steven in the photo with us!

After the birthday dinner we went to Mom & dad's for Kathy's birthday cake. Don't you love my dad's bandanna? This round of chemo made him loose a bunch of hair so he's been sporting this bandanna. I think he looks really cool!
**Happy Birthday Kathy!!** I picked out this cake for her myself and told Kathy could have the entire Rose! (we used to fight over this when we were little). Kathy was amazing and shared it with everyone, gave me part of the rose and a leaf!!!!  ; ^  )

Kathy and Ian are here until Monday and I look forward to spending more time with them this weekend, together with my mom, dad & steven. xoxo


  1. These pictures are beautiful Lenna! This is what I think represents life at it's best...together with our family....and I don't think there is anything better than cake!
    Hugs and love to you!

  2. Lovely happy family photos Lenna, and i think your Dad looks very cool with that bandana. I was just thinking that and then read why he'd started wearing it. Still looks cool to me.

    Enjoy the rest of the time with your lovely family.


  3. Glad you can spend some quality time with the family. Have a great weekend!

  4. Hi Lenna
    Your house is looking lovely with the furniture in.

    Bless your dear "Daddy Cool" - I do love his bandana - just as Jo says I was thinking the same thing before I read your comment.
    Hugs to you and yours Lenna

  5. It looks like you're having a super time together and of course lots of congratulations to your sister and I believe, also your dad! Who looks great in his bandanna and so perfectly co-ordinated with you and your sister's skirts! Enjoy this family time.

  6. Oh Lenna what a wonderful glimpse into your beautiful family! You all look so happy. I am glad that you are settled in your new home. all my love and best wishes for your future there.
