Family Celebration

After I picked up Katie from LAX we headed East to Whittier for a family gathering to celebrate Katie being here and Letty and my birthday.


My sister Kathy and my mom. My niece Michelle and Katie. My sister Vera and SIL Letty.


My niece Michelle and Melissa with my Grand Nephew Jackson. Michelle, Jessica, and my sister Lana. Kathy and Lana. Oops…I managed to miss getting my niece Debbee in any of these and she’s probably quite happy about that :0)


For dinner everyone brought along a favorite Chinese take-out item to share and my mom made this birthday cake for Letty and me along with those flaky delicate yummies on the right which are called Kudrishky. Kudrishky are a light flaky Russian dessert that is made from a dough rolled very thin, curled and fried. After they cool you dust them with powdered sugar.


The birthday girls! These extended birthday celebrations are a fun deal!

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage unless I pay them a lot of money. I’m slowly cleaning up many posts from this time period and deleting their ugly grey and black boxes with a ransom request. Such a time consuming bother.

    Hi Katie!

  2. I never noticed before how much your sister Kathy resembels your mom! I’m sure it was a fun family time. All girls? Well, I did notice that Jackson was there!

  3. Looks like it was great fun! I love how your extended always seems to celebrate things together. You all seem so tight knit. What a blessing!

    I think the Hungarians have a version of that Kudrishky but I can’t remember what it’s called.

  4. Tonight I went straight to your blog first, hoping there might be some pictures!! Luuuv them all, but especially of Michelle and Jack…..but you already know that!! I KNOW it was soo much fun : o
