Today we celebrated Jeanne Lewis Hayes’ 84th birthday. Knowing that Mom is not the biggest fan of birthdays and birthday cakes, I think you will enjoy this one.  The children are Philip, Kevin, Ann and Kelly Hayes.

Last year, my brother Peter and his wife organized “The Great Easter Egg Hunt of 2008”. While I was lost within a minute of the instructions, the kids seemed to figure it out and had a great time!

The Beattie Family Reunion

On Sunday we attended the first  “Beattie Mini-Reunion” in Manhasset, NY at the home of Patricia Celmency, my third cousin.  Myself, my wife Colleen, Philip Jr, Kevin, my brother Jerry and mother Jeanne all headed down to Pat’s house which is just 50 minutes away from mothers house in Katonah, NY.  We arrived at 1 PM and were warmly greeted at the door by Patricia and the rest of her side of the family. In attendance from the John Beattie side of the family were my Moms second cousins Regina Haffey and Angela Dolores Hughes; my third cousins Patricia Clemency, Anne Haffey and Regina O’Connell;  as well as Philip and Kevin’s fourth cousin Kevin Clemency.

It was the most incredible experience.  Although we had never met before, we all started in conversation as if we had known each other since we were born.  It it a very hard experience to describe in writing, but all who were there, agreed that the bloodline must have something to do with it.

On November 23, 2008, Jim’s wife, Liz, surprised him with a 70th Birthday party at the Stonebridge Restaurant in Milford, CT. About 50 friends and family attended.  Everybody had a great time

This last weekend, Mom, Colleen, Philip Jr., Kevin and myself all piled into the Trailblazer and headed south to Pennsylvania.  The drive down was without incident and allowed me some quality time to gather more family insight from my Mom.  She told me lots of new things, but unfortunately, I was driving and was unable to take notes.  I should have brought my voice recorder.  She promised to let me video record her at a later date.
