Family and Cake!

Okay, let's try this again.  I've been using my husband's computer since mine is being repaired, and it's just so different from mine.  I went ahead and installed Google Chrome on his, which is my browser of choice, and I can tell it's already doing better.  I do believe this post will stay and you will end up seeing it. :)

Remember around this time last year when my family and I attended a cousin's baby shower?   In that post I mentioned that an aunt and I share a birthday.  Cool, right?

Well, that baby that was in her mama's belly at that baby shower was born a couple of weeks later -- ON OUR BIRTHDAY.  How cool is that?

BIRTHDAY GIRLS

Aunt MF (standing, in the green) is the other birthday girl.  :)  MK, my other aunt, is the grandmommy of the other birthday girl, K.  (Our birthday is actually later this week.  So K's not quite a year old yet.  And I'm not quite 21 yet.  And my aunt's not quite 25 yet.....  What?  Okay maybe I'm off by a year or two -- but who's counting?)

My aunt came home to throw Little Miss K her first birthday party.  She said she wanted to celebrate the 21- and 25-year old, too.  How sweet is that?

I had no clue we'd be getting presents, too (fun!).  And our name was even on the cake.  So sweet.

It was great to finally meet Little Miss K. 

I've mentioned before how my family plays games at every event -- birthdays, showers, and even holiday dinners!  Always so fun!

My mom always tells me at every family event to "take out the camera," and I always tell her to "relax...I'll get pics."  Then I get home and realize that I didn't get very many at all.  Mama, you're right.  You're always right.  I didn't even get a pic of everyone that was there!  :-(

But I did manage to get a few:

My Aunt E and Baby K.

Morgan and Mama.  Morgan's supposed "smile" is so funny.

At least my nieces are giving real smiles.


The boys.

Someone was excited to eat a sucker (or three) at the party.

Aunt V and Cousin S.

Mama and her three little sisters, my Aunts V, E, and L.

It was a day filled with food, music, games, and just good times.  And we're doing it again in November for my grandma's birthday.  Can't wait!

Morgan and I followed my mom to her house with plans to stop by and grab some things, and then head to the lake to feed the ducks.  But we decided against it.  It was too late in the day, and a certain person didn't get her regularly scheduled nap.

This was after she and I had a little run in.  This funny pic was taken by my mom, and I can't wait to show Morgan how she had the ability to give the Evil Eye at 2.75 years old (she's looking at me -- yikes!).

But then you see pics like this



..and remember that she's just a sweet two-year-old and not some crazy teenager bottled in a miniature body (sometimes I wonder!).  J and A stopped by to see Morgan Sunday afternoon, and she was THRILLED.  They gave her all the attention she needed to be the performer that she is.  Plus they brought cupcakes, so Morgan was even more thrilled. She didn't want them to leave, but was glad the cupcakes stayed.  She asked if she could have another one for dinner. Um, no. :)

So, yeah, that was our weekend!  Family + Cake = PERFECTION.

Have a good week, guys!
