Wednesdays Weekend Wrap-up!

Why do week days seem to drag sometimes,
but the weekends ALWAYS FLY by?

Sunday afternoon, we had my family over to celebrate all the October and November birthdays. We have a total of six birthdays to celebrate during these two months.
We always have one big birthday bash somewhere in the middle of when all the birthdays fall.

Sunday we celebrated Shane, my Dad,
my sister Al, my brother Steve, and my brother Tim's birthday.
WHEW--that's a lot of celebrating!

Baby Jake has an October birthday as well, but we
celebrated his first birthday at a special party a few weeks ago.

We enjoyed a yummy baked potato and chili supper and my sweet Grandma made several desserts. We had our choice between birthday cake, pumpkin pie, or apple pie! Some had a plate with them all;)! I think we could have skipped dinner altogether and went straight for the desserts ;)!

Sophie sure did enjoy sharing dessert with Grandma!

Dessert is DEFINITELY Riley's favorite part of the meal too!
Riley with Mimi!

After dinner, everyone had a great time chatting, or just hanging out watching football--of course!

Riley with my Grandparents!

Looks like these two could be dreaming up some kind of trouble to get into together!?!?!
What do you think?

Hangin' with just the boys!
We are SO....BLESSED to have ALL our family close by and to celebrate together another wonderful year of birthdays!

Looks like a blessed time! Thanks for sharing! I have to ask. . .you have a rag type garland hanging in your kitchen window (in one or two of your pictures). Did you purchase that or did you make it? If you made it, was it easy to do? Did you follow directions on a website somewhere? Sorry for all of the questions! LOL!

Looking forward to hearing from you!

We had such a fun time hanging out and spending time all together. We are lucky to have everyone so close! I love the picture of Sophie and Jake! Those little stinkers!
