A Day of Surprises, Food and Family

The Boston family gathered here yesterday, although we were missing a key member, my son, The Writer.  He will be here for Christmas, so we will not despair.  However we had a decent family turnout:

 Back row:  Me, Mr. Tennis, his brother Kurt, Pete and Cristine (my neice and her hubby).
Front Row:  The Maven (and Darcy), Valerie (my neice), Orlando Grandma and my brother, Richard.

Pete, Cristine's husband treated us all to Butterbeer which is from the Harry Potter books and sold here at the Harry Potter section of Univeral.  I was so busy with all the food prep, that I neglected to take pictures, but Pete did a great job of recreating this very SWEET and tasty treat.

Earlier in the day we were lucky enough to get a visit from little Miss Anna.  She stopped by with her parents, Elliott (The Writer's very good friend and my second son) and Brooke.  My daughter and I had the pleasure of visiting them in Oklahoma City during our cross country trip this summer. 

A fun, tasty, exhausting day.  And yes, the Bostons were here, but this day the people had to take center stage.
