family bday get together

Saturday afternoon we had a family Bday party to goto, this family Bday party was for 4 people: my dh, my Uncle Phil, my Nephew, and my dd. It was held at my parents house, and people just came over for the afternoon for tea/coffee plus cake :)!

My kids don't get to see their Cousin Iain
a lot, so this is what they look like when they greet They don't miss him or anything, what do you think :p??

My oldest just LOVES his cousin Iain, they love to play wrestle and just do "cool things" (as my son says when asked what they do together) with each other. Luckily, my nephew didn't mind being tackled and sandwiched by his cousins!

I caught my dd playing peek a boo, with one of
my other relatives that was just coming into the house. Instead of seeing the person she was playing peek a boo with, I was standing there waiting for her to pop out for me to take her picture. Gottcha!

Here is my sister in law, reading Maiah a part of the Christmas Curious George collection of stories while we are waiting for others to arrive.

My nephew, and then my two boys all being silly in the living room together :)!

Here is one of the 3 Bday boys, this is Uncle Phil :)! He doesn't like his picture to be taken, but I thought I would take the opportunity to take it since it is a special occasion and all.

I took a picture of all the bday people, had to take two since my 3 year old dd wasn't cooperating like the other bday people.

This is my great Auntie Jean, she lives just across the street from my parents and up the street from my Aunt and Uncle. I grew up with family very close by, and that was a really nice thing to have.

My brother, wife and son gave my dd a Alphapede...he has the alphabet in uppercase letters on one side and lower case letters on the other side. Pretty neat :), as you can see it is quite difficult for her to carry this guy around!!

Here she is showing the Alphapede to Great Great Auntie Jean :)!

Here is my Nephew, :)! He was complaining that Auntie Catherine (me) hardly had any pictures of him on her blog, that was because he used to be of the age where funny faces for pictures was the THING to do.

Here is my Aunt reading something with my oldest son, thought this picture was cute :)! My nephew reading one of his Birthday presents, he is quite into reading...

My dd opening one of her gifts she received, it is a Dora backpack filled with mega block lego and 2 Dora figures. When she figured out what it was, she grabbed it and hugged it a HUGE hug. Next to her is her anxious older brother wanting to help out in anyway he can to assemble the Dora lego.

Inky Hugs,

P.S. what do you think of my new watermark??
