looks like you've had a blast :) (and this "version" of Fifty Shades seems to have more appeal to me than the "obvious" one :D )

Lovely party Maggie!

"And a Good Time Was Had by All." Lovely pictures and the menu makes me sorry I missed all the good food. Just a passing observation ----your family appears to be populated by very attractive women - both young and not quite so young.

Nice looking family. The Shower sounds like it was a lot of fun and good food.
