Le fabulous table decor:)
Cookies went in the silver tray and punch in the punch bowl. I just forgot to take a picture of the finished product.
I was messing around with the light sensitivity on my camera and this was the result. When I was standing right beside them, I could barely make them out is was so dark in the room. Cool, huh?
This is my sister Jennifer. She was asked to do a little presentation as the woman at the well for Meemaw's class. Sam and I were in there sitting to the side when she came in. Afterwards she told us she wasn't expecting an audience. Surprise!!! hehehe She did such a good job and was then asked to go to all the classes and do her presentation!
This is Sam's mom aka Meemaw who just happens to be a Kindergarten teacher. Guess which age group she was teaching? Our nephew Gabe was in her class.
I wanted to get some shots of this. I just thought it was cute that they were all holding on to the rope and having a good time yacking with one another. Braden and his cousin Boaz got to be in the same class together.
Hayride time! The kids really enjoyed this. We rode with Braden's class along with Jennifer. (FYI: She's mother to Elijah, Luke, Gabe and Boaz. She's married to Sam's brother Ben. Therefore my sister.)
Sam and his super cheesy self. Yep, it gets worse!:)
Me and Jennifer trying to take decent pictures while on a hayride.
Me failing at that miserably cuz Jennifer was making me laugh too much! (BTW, look at my huge, honkin' face! I have a really big face right now. Wow!)
Boaz, a little out of focus. It was a wee bit hot, too.
Meemaw and Peepaw having a good time. I don't know who this little girl is, but she's cute, isn't she?
See, I told ya...it got worse!;p
I love this picture. Jennifer and Gabe having a moment.
Me being a goob. (It runs in the family! hehehe)
More Jenny and Gabe....
If I had better skills, this could have been a very interesting study for photography.
Boaz with his "craft".
Braden and his "craft". I'm still not sure what they are supposed to be.:)
Michael, just chillin' in his carseat.
The super-duper, fantabulous, second-attempt birthday cake.
This one had it all folks - an erupting volcano, dinosaurs, trees, a pond, a railroad track complete with Thomas the Train and don't forget the balloons! Oh, yeah, Luke and I had a good time making this one! I bet you can't even tell who did which part! He did such a good job!
Sam and Zekey at the pre-birthday preparations. By the way, Luke took all the pictures at the birthday party! Didn't he do such a good job? I'm thinking he's gonna follow in Aunt Shelly's footsteps and be a photographer. OH, yeah......
Dakota and Gabe in the pool. (FYI: Dakota and Michael are Mollie's kiddos. She's Sam's sister, therefore my sister. I consider that I have three sisters. My sister Sara who I grew up with - biological, and Jennifer and Mollie who were given to me by marriage by the Grace of God! Just trying to save on confusion;)
There's a lot of love here. Can you feel it? Dakota, Gabe and Boaz trying to choke each other, I think!;)
Dakota, Gabe, Boaz and Braden. Do you see something wrong with this picture? Yeah, we hadn't gotten Braden a swim shirt yet and I forgot to put sunscreen on him! Yikes! He's still healing from the sunburn. ;(
Me and Michael. I don't even want to suppose what he was thinking! Isn't he a cuter patooter?!
Granny (my mom) and Zekey. She got to come to the party on her lunch break.
Zekey's new wheelbarrow from Meemaw and Peepaw.
Braden's helicopter from Dakota. Didn't Dakota do such a good job picking that out? (Pay no attention to the woman behind the kid! aaaaaah!)
Zekey trying to play with two large toys at once.
New shoes from Ben, Jen and boys.
Boaz and his goody bag! I made sure there was plenty of
Braden and his new favorite very loud game from Meemaw and Peepaw. Peepaw said something about who would get such a noisy game and everyone laughed when he was told it had come partly from him! :D
Zekey and some bugs.
This is a very sacked out Peepaw and Michael!
At VBS they had a little picture with the face cut out and Sam and Zekers had a good time cheesin' it up for the camera!
Zekey on a saddle.
Zekey and Luke on a "bull".
Sam is a little too big for the bull ride, I think!
MMMmmm....root beer floats and brownies and cookies! They even got the kids cowboy boot glasses to drink out of. So neatThis was Friday night after they all went to the lake. All the little rosy cheeks!
