"How long does this flu last that's going around?"
Here's my flu, 7 years later!
After 7 kids over a 30 year span, Daddy Prince Charming has these birthday parties down pat. He knows his job well!
Our family tradition is that EVERYONE gathers to celebrate the birthday kid. You need a note from your mother or a Dr's excuse to get out of these family parties! Everyone gets a party every year until they graduate from high school. When they are all grown up, we'll have attended over 180 of these parties. But hey, each one is special, especially to the birthday kid!
At 21 (or is it 22?) Cousin T is here in all his battle glory, fulfilling his duty as "the cousin who wrestles!" The kids see him and immediately go into battle -mode....
Here's the "smart one." (Not that the rest of us aren't smart, understand). He's already fixed Grandma's computer, now he is working on the PlayStation (or Game Cube or some such thingy-doody). I've always looked up to my big brother. He can fix anything! Plus, he's a nice guy. Here's Seth showing off the crafting sister's gift. She and her husband made this shield and sword. The sword is made of maple. Aren't they cool? A little boy's dream come true. And yes, the big brother is EXTREMELY jealous! The BFF/niece is looking on to see what's next!
I don't remember what it was, but it's affect was instantaneous....
He's died and gone to heaven it appears!
And, what little kid birthday is not complete without some webkins. If you have a child under 10 in your household, you know exactly what I'm talking about.
Hard to believe the baby, the youngest child, the youngest grandchild is so big so fast. Just a blink of an eye, and he's so big. Another blink and he'll be all grown up, just like the rest of them.
