I’ve decided not to make any excuses about why I am so negligent about this blog. I think everyone understands.
The twins had a terrific birthday – December 22 – 7 years old!! I finished the backpacks and the dresses – and the girls were pretty happy about them.
I’ll have to slip in a shot of the backpacks another time.
The day after the girls’ birthday, the 23rd, we invited all my sisters and their girls, and my mom for our first Cousins Christmas Tea! We had a wonderful time – it was so much fun! Here are a few pictures…
some of the princesses – Aleyna, Erin, Claire and Olivia
more princesses – Cameron, Isabella, Sarah and Ellie in the red, Brooke, Sophia
the boys – who were allowed food, then banished upstairs to the boy’s room (which they were thrilled about) – Luke, Noah, Isaac, Evan
The lot of us – a very merry group! One mom/grandma, 5 sisters, 17 daughters, one baby boy (plus a toddler who snuck in)… and a partridge in a pear tree! The only 2 missing were little Anna and our sister (in-law) Monica – we missed you both!
Lord willing – this was the first of many to come.
