Number 3's Birthday Bash

We gathered Sunday to celebrate Three's second birthday!
One and Two helped celebrate along with us taller party goers.
Number Four stayed in the safety of her high chair.

Dad is lighting candles for an anxious Three while One and Two ready themselves to help.
Blow and spray- out go the candles!

So much cake so little mouth for Three.

Three has a nose for icing, a really cute nose.

One shows off her frosted lip color.

Three holds a birthday present while Two is ready to share.

As Two speeds along, One hangs on tight trying not to collect
bugs in her teeth.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Grandchild number Three!

Swim Resort II

The swim resort was open again!  This time we had all five visiting so I will count them down!

Start with Number 1...




and 5!

We are just in awe of God's blessings when we gather our family together!  It is amazing to us how He grows us by bringing together people through the combining of lives.  Our children bring spouses into the group and their families become part of the blessings.  Then grandchildren are added when you think it cannot hold anymore blessings.  Truly, Our cup runneth-over....
Nothing could bring this to mind more than when Sis got married this weekend and we met my new Brother-in-law's family, the newest additions to our family.  We also got to see nieces, nephews and cousins that we haven't seen in a while. While holding #1 in the middle of a large group, I told her that these people were her cousins and family. She was speechless.
I will post some pictures of the wedding, but I think that the newlyweds should get to see the pictures first.

"Cats" by Skylar

Our young photographer niece took advantage of a family outing to photograph one of her favorite subjects ... cats!  Here is a compilation of her project.  Thanks to Jenny, for showing me how to create a slideshow to insert in a post.
