yesterday the family gathered at ma's for ham dinner. We had two deserts and burned funeral potatoes. I invited jeff and vanya - first for me to invite two guys at once to a family dinner. Vanya did really well to bond without me, especially since he got the time wrong and was a half hour early. The cool part was taking ma outside around the lawn to see ma's father's day gift of an ash tree. We hope it lives for her. We discovered a couple sick purple robed locusts in the yard, unfortunately. It was a day of mixed emotions - but no tears at dinner, luckily. Oh, and the sisinlaw announced a baby on the way!
