Family Fun

Sunday evening, we celebrated Anna's NINTH birthday with family. I cannot believe she's nine (well, on Tuesday anyway). More on that later. For now, take a look at the craziness that always happens when this family gets together :)

Who's surprised that birthday girl has a book in her hands?!

 Tate & Isaac...those two are trouble! The fearless duo!

 Anna's birthday bouquet from Hudson and Tate...picked from their own backyard!

 Papa tried to tell her that if she keeps watering that green flower, it'll grow more green. Anna didn't buy it. Jacob was ready to start watering all his green "flowers"! haha

 Daddy needs a shotgun.....

 Oh boy...Aunt Cara has been sewing!!

 Look out Aunt Cara...she's got a big hug for you!

 Why is she looking so weird? The next picture explains it all...

 Oh Mia.

 She's had her eye on this journal for MONTHS!

 She loves her Papa and Binga. I think she'll be a Papa's girl the rest of her life...has been since the day she was born!

 Bryce decided to put the gift bag on his head, so Uncle Wally had a little fun with him! ;)

 Time for Duck, Duck, Goose! Rhys just ran around the circle playing her own version of the game.

 Look comes Tate!!

I say it every year, but we are SO blessed to have family that loves to get together and celebrate!! This is what birthdays were growing up...grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins just getting together and being together. Nothing fancy, no big to-do. Just sharing a meal and being entertained by the kids (easy to do when there are 9 of them!). It's never quiet and it's never dull, but I love the memories my kids are making. So thank you, family, for making the effort to be here and celebrate Anna Rose!

How fun! Did you make the cake this time? Look like Anna had a great time! Always nice having family and cousins on birthdays. Our boys get to celebrate their birthdays with whoever people God brings our way...such a life we have :). They still wish to be closer with their cousins.
Aloha to Anna, Jacob and Isaac the good boy!

I didn't make a cake this time. I was going to do a watermelon "cake" but decided to get her an ice cream cake instead.
