The Auction & Family Fun

I have been on a little blog break for the last few days...enjoying out of town company.   It's always  so much fun while they are here and so sad when they have to leave.   
We ran by the auction for a little while Saturday morning and I picked up a few things.    I loved this small lamp.....

Some shoe lasts.....

The Lords Supper...
I bought two of the largest vintage pitchers I have ever seen....this one is about 18" tall.....

and this one is a little shorter.
I very seldom post about my personal life,  but I am going to make an exception today.

  This is our daughter and her friend Martin decorating cake pops with Kyleigh and Lundon.   
Here is our out of town company......Kelly & Mark.    Lundon is their granddaughter that they brought with them.   ( Over in the left corner is a rare glimpse of! )    
Here are the finished cake pops.
Yes ....that is a pile of bacon at the top of the photo.   we had steaks,  salad,  and LOADED baked potatos for supper that evening.
We enjoyed a fun filled evening with Karaoke and board games.    On the left is Kyleigh and Lundon singing a song from Frozen.....on the right is our daughter and grandson Aaron singing a duet....made me cry it was so beautiful!    Our 23 year old grand daughter and 11 year old great niece also sang some beautiful songs,   didn't get a photo....rats!
Saturday was Kyleigh's birthday.     She had a skating party and invited her whole class and we had about 14 family members as well.    This is our daughter,  her two sons and Kyleigh.   Melissa's oldest daughter Sarah was working and couldn't come to the party.

We finished the birthday with dinner at  Red Lobster.   That is Kyleigh's dad on her left and H's hand on the right!
Friday night we had a big party here at our home,  but I was so busy that I didn't get even one photo....sorry!

    Looks like you've been having some fun!

  2. Thank you for sharing a peek of your family. It was really fun to see them in your beautiful kitchen. Jo

  3. Okay, the lamp - DIVINE!!!!! I am so in love!!!! And it looks like lots of fun times with a delightful family and special friends. You have been busy!!!! Isn't it so much fun when all the family gathers? And kinda nice when they leave and you can put your feet up and enjoy the pictures (memories).

  4. I loved this post and seeing the people enjoying your lovely home. What a beautiful family you have! I would love to see more pictures of the two of you..and it's a shame we have to hesitate to show our, HOW, I wish our world was what we portray it to be..everywhere!! Anyway...what fun this was, Penny!

  7. Penny,
    So glad that you got to spend some wonderful fun filled time with your family and I really enjoyed seeing the photos of your family!!
    Love those pitches and I adore the pretty lamp!!
    I really like how the Winter Tree in the Living Room came out. I think I will use what I used to decorate it this year on my white tree in the guest room after Christmas next year when I do a Valentine's Day Tree in the Living Room.
    So was your grand daughter's birthday on Jan. 31st? If it was then it is the same as mine!!


  8. Oh Penny, you find the best things, but I actually jumped when I saw the Last Supper figurine. That is fabulous!!
