In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

Birthdays Abound.....

In the month of August our family has 8 Birthdays and 3 of our dear friend's also celebrate their births this month.
That leaves us with a grand total of 11 Birthdays in August!

Last Sunday we got together at my Sissy's house to celebrate some of the children's (officially) and adult's (unofficially) Birthdays all at once.

It's truly a blessing to have a brother-in-law who is an awesome chef who also has awesome chef friends.

I couldn't fit pics of all of the food. This was just one counter loaded with calories.

This little guy isn't big on sushi, but had no problems polishing off that cupcake.

These are the two cakes honoring the 4 cousins(2 girls & 2 boys).

The two boy cousins were actually born on the exact same day in two different countries.
P.S. This has been the best summer ever. We haven't stopped, but we have enjoyed every minute. I am usually sad about Eloise going back to school. This is the first year I can actually say that I am ready for routine and normally paced life to resume. Four members of our family just returned to South Carolina and a friend of ours will be arriving from California on Sunday. It looks like we are just going to party till the end! Eloise starts school this Wednesday.
I probably won't be posting that day.....
I have a lot of beauty rest to catch up on.
