Well, we had a celebration for my sister's 25th anniversary 6 months after the actual date. That pretty much guarantees that she'd never suspect a thing.

Good turnout of cousins and friends. I've had a lot of good feedback and few complaints, so it's a good thing (as Martha would say).

 The kids helped to decorate and did a damn good job. They got really into it.
Good cousin turnout.
 My camera sucks for these indoor things.

The kids were delighted that all their cousins were together.  They were very well-behaved.  The boys were delighted when I told them the fruit and cheese was self-serve. They complimented the waitresses on how nicely presented it was.   I ordered chicken strips and fries for the kids.  When Ted heard, he made a beeline for their table and scavenged for a bit.  They were highly entertained and happy to share. Some things never change.

We took the opportunity to take some family photos while we were all gathered together.




 Four generations.  The aunties, sibs, offspring, significants and of course the nextNEXT generation.

Siblings & Spouses.

 The music was on but my son turned it down-everyone was having too much fun visiting.

 Maras mugging.

 The next generation.
 Friends and family mixed well.

So, despite all the crazy technical glitches, the actual day went smoothly.  Everyone was happy to have an occasion to gather that did not include a eulogy.  And that's what it's all about:)
