...a few more pics of hubby's b-day!

It sure was a lovely SPRING day! ((all pics can be enlarge))


Asked Grace to take a couple of pics while we were preparing one of the last salad..sorry about the mess...and then friends from the mainland came in. From then on i forgot to take pics of the 'buffet' we prepared and all the tarts/cakes i've made.

Tried to take pics here and there, this from the living room...

...this from the kitchen, i think more people standing in the kitchen than in the living room. The couple of friends who came from the mainland were the one helping me for the buffet and we had to work in between the people around the kitchen.

One of the main food available were fried fish, which were prepared outside. We were very grateful to one of our friends who provided the fish and borther-in-law with the huge fishpan as well as doing the works(frying...)


After the meal, a couple of friends did an 'act'....

It was busy but FUN!! There were 38 adults and 10 children that day and we were very lucky the weather was lovely so the children were able to go and play outside. Adults had been on and off outside too especially those who were smoking. It was after 3am when the last guest left.....

Hubby was spoiled with gifts, here's just a few...and lots of different bottles of liqour, coupons and cash!

...and i received these lovely flowers!!!


A HAPPY WEEK to all!! Thank you all so much for visiting and all the lovely comments. I really appreciate them all.
