Home From Vacation!

For the past few days, my sisters and I have been up north visiting my brother and sister-in-law.
 As always, such a fun time!
If you are a regular visitors to my blog, you know of 
my brother, Jay. (or Jim to anyone else but family!)
I am totally blown away constantly by his talent.
These are two of the birch bark baskets he creates. 
The carvings into the bark he does on the fronts
are just beautiful.  He was getting ready for 
a show in Novi, MI, the Outdoorama.
This deer and her friends were outside the back porch,
 so beautiful up close.
Friday night was home made pizza night! 
My sil Cheryl makes the most
awesome pizza!
She didn't do too bad a job tossing either!
Saturday night, we went to see my brother play drums with his band. 
It was the first time in years I've seen him play.
He's been a professional drummer since he was 17, playing in dance bands. I guess you could say, Jay is a Jack of
all trades, and master of all!
It was Mardi Gras night, and we got beads for knowing who sang the song
 "Kix" by Paul Revere and the Raiders. 
Needless to say, we had a riot!
