Here I am!!

O.K. These are a little out of order, but I wanted to add them. Here I am with my sister Susie who lives in K.C.

My niece Megan the graduate and her dad, my brother-in-law, Kelly doing some karaoke.

Hi everyone! I got back from Kansas City last week and stayed in Maryland until yesterday. I had a wonderful time, and took a break from the computer too! I have to say it was a very nice break. I had a great time visiting my sister and niece's out in the boonies. I love it out there. It was nice change of pace, everyone is so friendly and laid back out West. I miss it.

Above is a picture of my niece Megan on the left. With her is Cory, her boyfriend of 7 years, and her roommate Amy. They all graduated from KU, and had a big redneck party! (not really redneck, it was very nice!)

My son John and nephew Billy in my sister's living room relaxing and taking in the country feel. The last time my son was in Kansas, I think he was 8 months old!

Amy and Megan posing on the tractor in the back yard.

Another niece, Kellie and my dad (who really needs a haircut!) My sister has 4 girls. My fourth niece is in Brooklyn, New York and couldn't come.

We were out running around the day before the party, and the car was packed! This was the only spot left to put the rolls. Poor Amy.

This is my sister's new baby, Gracie. She is a 1 year old 150 pound baby, and such a beautiful lab!

This is niece Kellie again with her boyfriend Cody.

My sister Susie who had the party, with dad.

This is my brother-in-law's sister Kim and her son. She came all the way from Oklahoma for the party. She was fun! There was a D.J. set up on a flatbed tractor with great music and karaoke. Everyone had a great time, and partied until the wee hours.

I hope everyone had a great week and I truly missed you all! Now I have some catching up to do

  4. Hey Girl!! We missed you but it looks like such a fun KC visit! I feel like I was dancing at the party, you captured all the fun! The kids all look fabulous! And the adorable lab!
