WEEK TWO
My sister and her family left a few minutes ago to return to Virginia. They'll be back again in 10 days. The house is definitely quieter with the removal of 1 dog and 2 kids, but not nearly as much fun. We don't have any plans today, so maybe we'll go shopping. We've already been here a week! Man, time flies!!

Last night we gave my mom her birthday presents (her birthday is Wednesday) and Sarah baked a banana cream pie covered with fresh blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. YUM! During the day we took the kids to the mall and had their portrait taken (all 4 together) at Sears. It only took us 8 tries to get a decent shot, which I think was miraculous considering they were all starving.

Tomorrow my cousin Beth and her 4 kids are coming down for the afternoon. Beth is a little older than me and I've always looked up to her. She's an amazing woman. Her husband had an affair and left her several years ago when her youngest was really small, and she's come out on top. Wednesday we're going back to Sears to have a family portrait taken and then to my Grandma's for dinner and the beach.

Gotta go take a shower and get moving :)

Happy Happy Birthday Wishes to alcesalces and twistedbunny, and Belated Birthday Wishes to kimbis!

It's crazy birthday time for sure! If my dad was still alive, we'd have HIM too since his birthday and my mom's are the same day. My FiL's is right before mine as well, but since we're in the States we'll just call him. March is the other crazy celebration time in my family since my sister and brother and Anders' niece and my sister's son all have birthdays then, plus my parent's wedding anniversary!
