surprise party for oma


the whole fam. around one big table. here is what it looks like to reunite seven siblings and their spouses (what i call spice) sans children to surprise my parents with a spontaneous dinner party. doesn't everyone look so good? it was nice to have everyone in one place again. finally. we're all there. well almost. minus the two who were busy laboring with the cutest addition of the year. oh it was just magic. the chatter and laughter was non-stop and i was, without a doubt, in my happy place. and the almond raspberry torte, ammmazing. not to mention the clam chowder and coho salmon. please excuse the blurry shots, i guess i was too excited to concentrate. can you blame me?

Ok, this may be a crazy question - but can you ask your sister/cousin where she got her top? It's the white ruffled number in the 6th photo down. THANKS. :)

this would be such a dream dinner. all the 'spice'. (you know that i love that clever word!) ever since i was little i've thought grown ups sitting around a table is one of the best things on earth. it looks like such fun! and 1) that torte looks sublime. 2) what a cutie pie photo of you and dan! and 3) your cardigan is ultra chic.

so glad your weekend was full of parties and anthro and family!

Marta-it sounds like you had a wonderful time. I love having my family around one table too.

Love your cardigan by the way!

It sounds delightful and everyone does look so good. I love your cardigan. Market Sreet is one of my favorite restaurants of all time.

This is as good as it gets. To be surrounded by love, laughter, memories and best friends and have them all be your kids. I couldn't ask for a better gift! Thanks everyone!!
