Ana’s emotional speech brought tears to Angie’s eyes. Ana always had a way with
Words.
Jean looked at Angie, and walked over to her, just as Pierre was escorting Ana
To her chair….
Jean put his arm around Angie’s shoulder, kissed her whispered something in her
Ear, and that made her smile..
They all sat down and resumed their celebration.

Cousin Nicolais made a speech as well, this time everyone laughed.
His jokes were lighthearted and lightened the mood.

When Angie was finally able to speak she said,
“Ana and Pierre,
Jean and I are delighted and grateful to you for accepting the role
Of Godparents to our little angel Grace. This will bring us even closer
As a family and cousins. We love you both dearly .
And Ana, now I will need you help planning The Christening.
I know that with your help, we can throw a great party for Baby Grace.”
They all drank to that….

Angie finishes her speech.. with a glimmer of joyful tears. I watch her closely. She is a hearty,
beautiful woman and wears her heart on her sleeve. I do so enjoy having Jean and Angelique close
to our royal family unit. There are not many people who you may consider your true friends. But, to
acquire two or three is a gift from God. To top it off, they are part of our intimate royal family. How
wonderful that we have another addition, baby Grace. The little Dutchess that has already brought
us all much joy and unity.

Pierre is attuned to my wistful mood and touches my hand briefly to look into my eyes. I just nod,
and smile reassuringly, squeezing his hand with my own. He reads me well.

Uncle Nicolais is at his best. His demeanor lately has not lacked joviality and good humor. He is
at his best. Champagne in hand, he gives an eloquent. comedic speech. It cheers everyone as
he exclaims in Russian, "Cheers. to your health" translated as:

"Vá-she zda-rо́-vje"

My imagination now runs in a practical turn. We must plan for the Christening and the party that will follow.
Angie scoots over and sits by me after breakfast is finished. She has a twinkle in her eye which means she has something in mind which must be immediately shared. As if by cue, I know it is about shopping
and all the wonderful things that will be required for the Christening. "Of course, we must have new dresses!"
she exclaims." I was just thinking of that myself!" I retort She laughs and gives me a sisterly hug and
interjects with a comment, "Great minds think alike!"
I agree and we giggle like schoolgirls.

Actually, other things have been occurring which have taken up a lot of time. We will need to take this event
in serious consideration and make it a priority to plan this event.

So much has happened this past year.

It all began on a train that was going who knows where.
Meeting people, Anastasia and Pierre, Angie's bodyguard...

Then onto that beautiful Cruise Ship, full of adventures.


Angie's fashion show in St. Petersburgh, Russia, was a great success. Ana saved the day.
One of the models took ill and thankfully Ana filled in.

Ana then found out that her uncle is the Grand Duke of Russia. They all moved into the castle with him.
Uncle Nicolais took one look at Jean and asked him questions about the family, and soon discovered
that Jean is The Duke's nephew. Jean's mother married an American businessman and moved to
the States, and only came back once for a visit with young Jean.

Uncle Nicolais immediately took to Angie and insisted she call him Cousin Nicolais.....

So, Ana and Jean are first cousins.
Cousin Nicolais decided to offer Jean and Angie the titles of Duke and Duchess.

Soon after, Jean married the love of his life, Angie.
They had a Grand Royal wedding. Everthing was perfect...now Angie is their cousin as well.
As a wedding gift, the Duke offered them the other half of the castle which is joined by a lovely tunnel.

Angie and Jean, are now living in their own castle as husband and wife.

Ana and Pierre, with The Grand Duke's permission are now engaged. They are so much in love.
They all wish that they would settle down, get married and start a family, but they have their own plans,,
to travel around the world before settling down. They asked Angie and Jean to join them.
Of course they happily accepted.

They were all packed and ready to leave next morning.

Cousin Nicolais will have his work to keep him busy, but he will miss his family.
They traveled from city to city and had a wonderful time. One day Angie felt faint and dizzy.
After a visit to the Doctor, he announced that she was pregnant. Everyone was thrilled to hear the
news, but the Doctor said to take is easy.
Cousin Nicolais could not hide his excitement when he heard the news.

After visiting a few more cities and sights, they all decided to go home, not wanting to take any
chances. Cousin Nicolais was thrilled when they returned. They had many stories to tell.
Cousin Nicolais always said that what the castle needed was the sound of children's laughter.

Now Angie was on bed rest as per Doctor's orders.
Well it all paid off, Angie gave birth to a beautiful little doll that looks exactly like her. Blond hair ,blue eyes
and delicate. When they were thinking about a name, Ana came up with Grace, and that is what they
named the baby. Duchess Grace. Sounds right doesn't it?

Today, Ana and Angie are planning the baby's Christening......

"Stop daydreaming Angie. There's lots to be done and we have not even begun."
"I know I know, I just can't help it."
"look, we have to announce the Christening and the date. We need to make a guest list,
invitations, a menu and the list goes on. You can daydream all you want later."
Angie gave Ana a hug and said, "you are right, let's get to work."

"Oh and let's not forget, we have to go shopping for our dresses."
"Of course " laughed Ana.

Angie has that starry-eyed look into space type of expression. I've had to ask her a question
twice. She is dazed as if being woken up from a reverie when I nudge her.

"Let's at least make a timeline. I have contacted the Orthodox Archbishop for a pending date for
the actual baptism. after that, we will make a public official announcement ." There is a lot we
need to talk about." We put our heads together and plan the event.

"It is exhausting work planning a party!" Angie sighs.

"It sure is!" I get out of my chair and stretch..

Just at that moment the Jean and Pierre strut right in .... the latter catching my outstretched hand.
Gallantly and with an exaggerated motion he kisses it.

"We have come to rescue our damsels from distress!" they both quip in unison.

This is something planned as both of them have something up their sleeve. There is no hiding those
unabashed grins from either of their faces. Angie and I exchange a quick glance. I can see that she
is thinking the same thing. Caught off guard, pleasantly.

We are told to go freshen up and wear our best evening gowns. They surprise us with a romantic
candlelit dinner. Then tickets for the Mariinsky Ballet Company, the most notable and respected
ballet company not just in Russia but all around the Globe! This is a real treat! We are so happy
and grateful for the change of pace.. you may say we are grinning like Cheshire cats!

Angie woke up from her daydream when she saw Pierre and Jean enter the room.
She glanced at Ana, wondering why these men were grinning, but the ladies
Only smiled back.
A dinner and Ballet, YES. Just what they needed.
This would be Angie’s first big outing since baby Grace.
The exciting news got Angie out of her seat and ran to Jean. He held and kissed
Her.
“Why don’t you and Ana go get dressed, and we will meet you back here
in half hour.”

The ladies did just that. Soon Angie was dressed and ready.
]

She walked into the living room.
Jean was there waiting, with Ana and Pierre.
When he saw Angie he got up and exclaimed,
“Wow, my love, you are a vision of loveliness.”
“You're not so bad yourself.” Replied Angie. Jean swirled her around
And kissed her.
Ana looked lovely in her gown, Pierre and Jean looked dashing.
Both so handsome. The ladies complimented each other…
They left and soon arrived at the restaurant.

They sat down to a wonderful dinner, all excited about the ballet.

]

After dinner, they drove to the Theatre.
The Ballet was magnificent, those dancers were a dream.
Halfway through at the break, the foursome went out for drinks.


It was noisy, people chatting above each other, but it they all had a wonderful time.


This was certainly a night to remember.

Indeed what a sight for sore eyes are Pierre and Jean. We had succumbed to ennui and needed a
recharge..and boy did we get it! These two men are full of swagger... Pierre catching my arm as
he grinned over it. They have grandiose plans for a sumptuous candlelight dinner and a showing
at the Ballet.

This is a big deal for my dear cousin who has not had an outing since baby Grace was born..we have
been planning her Baptism.. It took no time at all for us to recover our wits and good nature..

The men looked in amusement at our changed demeanor. Angelique ran to Jean and thanked him
with a kiss. Pierre was waiting expectantly... I whispered.. "Later.." as he held on to my hand. He would
not relinquish, saying," Kiss me Quick !" " I am glad I did. Now to
skedaddle and get dressed!" I whisper to him softly.

I browse through my vast wardrobe. Nothing really interests me in the choice of gowns. Until the end
when I spot a white gown I had never worn before. Actually, I had forgotten all about it. I wonder if the color
will suit me or wash me out? There's only one way to find out. I will try it on and see what Pierre thinks,.




My red clutch at hand, I am ready.. when he walks in and gives a low wolf whistle. He says the dress is very
ravishing and ...so are you. I blush .. he tilts my chin ... and gives me a soft kiss... not disturbing my lipstick
(I hope) :laugh:


The men have reservations at a very beautiful restaurant. The dinner is sumptuous and champagne glasses
are raised once again for a celebration of love.. amongst brethren... amongst people in the world everywhere.


I love candlelight and the candles flickering reflect a very lovely ambiance..




We thoroughly enjoyed the performance of The Mariinsky Ballet Company. What a beautiful art form
of beauty and grace.

Dinner and Ballet last night were marvellous. Just what everyone needed.
Angie woke up with a smile and a glow about her…
She was still excited about the outing.

Jean came to greet her with a kiss.
“We should do this more often, my love. You have been deprived of many outings
During your pregnancy.”

Angie agreed and responded, “Yes we should but not until after the Baptisme.
There is still so much we need to do.”

Just then Cousin Nicolais walked in followed by the two kitties.


“Where is baby Grace? I need to see her.”
How sweet the kitties look following him around.
They went right up to Grace's bassinet and waited for her to wake up …
They love to cuddle with her while she sleeps, and play with her when she’s awake.
They are very protective of her.

Cousin Nicolais gave a big smile . His eyes lightened up when he saw Grace sleeping
Like an Angel.
