The Relatives Came

It was 60 degrees the day after Thanksgiving...so we went to the school playground.  I hauled out my stroller for Zeke for the walk home.  The stroller was purchased when Matthew was a baby.  Still a nice stroller.  I saw Princess Diana's stroller in a magazine....and bought one just like it.
I had Pierre Deux purses like Diana and Hunter Boots like Diana and red flats with bows just like Diana.  A little kooky, I know.
Imagine my excitement over the newly engaged Harry and Meghan.  
I have been a huge fan of Suits and Meghan for years! 
What a remarkable thing.  
It's like a Hallmark movie come to life...but with really, really nice sets and wardrobe and hair and makeup and the very best flowers and REAL ROYALTY!
I'm so excited and happy for them.

The boys baked cookies with Bunka.

These boys will carry on the tradition of rolling out the cookies and decorating....cause I don't know how to do this part!

I rocked it with the knock-knock joke.

Knock Knock
Who's there?
Boo Who?

Don't cry!

A wonderful smile from a shy guy.

Katie's new pose.  Gone are the jazz hands.  

Lovely girls without makeup.

This is Emma's new pup, Harold. He is the boss.  Ginny was very sweet to him and showed him how to be a calm doggie.  He is a good boy...most of the time.  He brought some poop to Melinda and Emma on the couch one evening and we screamed....with laughter.  A memory we will never forget.

Matthew and Emma.  Sweet shot.

Come back soon Asher!

And everybody else!

Hope you had a wonderful holiday.  Count down to Christmas now.

Love ya!


  1. I wore so many hats in the '80s. I loved Diana and her style. So very happy for Harry and Meghan!!!

    Those Boucher boys certainly get cuter every year!!

  2. Your boys (big and little) and your girls are all stunning and packed with personality. I'm sure I said this before but one of my fondest memories was getting up in the middle of the night, getting the coffee going and watching Charles and Diana get married. I'm looking forward to this wedding too!

    Love this nice update on your family. Warms my heart. As for the royal wedding, am I the only one with a twinge of...."it probably should have been ME marrying a prince!"

    1. Hahaha! I'm old enough to be his mom...

    When you title a blog entry "The Relative Came" I aways think of Cynthia Rylant's book by the same name. She writes "Then it was hugging time. Talk about hugging! Those relatives just passed us all around...." Asher and his brothers were passed around for hugs I am sure, that is if you could catch them. Such a fine family and what a wonderful cookie tradition to pass on to the Grands! And, yes what a great love story for Prince Harry and Meghan! love and prayers for all, jep

    1. That's why I title it like this:) love that book!
