birthday bash

yesterday was my mom's birthday so we joined bethany's crew at our parents' house for a, um, noisy celebration.  that's just what you get when you put six kids under the age of six at nanny and pop's house for the day.

mom cooked a delicious meal for all of us (yes, the poor thing cooked her own birthday lunch!) and then we spent the rest of the afternoon chatting, laughing, and playing with the little people.  oh, and i got to take bethany and bailey out for a few much-needed photos of them together.

and in case you didn't catch her serious gorgeousness in those first photos, let me show you a couple more of my little sister...

no, i'm not jealous -- just proud.  (ok, and maybe a little jealous.)  ;-)

but it's easy to see where she gets it.  everybody says that she looks just like our beautiful mom!

now i know that we weren't celebrating my birthday, but i still would have liked to have wished just one thing: i really wish the kids could have had just a little fun while we were there.

(what you can't see is my dad acting like a fool just off camera to get the kids to laugh for the picture.  love it!)  ;-)
