A Very Special Birthday

My first Nephew, Eli, will be celebrating his birthday in the next few days. We had his birthday party today, though. The picture above is of the expression on his face when his favorite aunt (Sorry Emily, someone's gotta be favorite) said she wasn't going to pop the balloon she was holding. Ohh, such disappointment!

Grandpa and Grandma got him a nice little suit...see how he looks? Isn't he handsome?
And below is one of my favorites from the whole day. My sister with all three of her wonderful kids.
This time I was careful to get a few more pictures of David. Last time I only managed one good one. He is such a ham!
Grandma helped me corner him and I got another.
That special Aunt/Nephew bond is shown here. Someone's got to read the card!
Another picture of David...charmer.
What is a birthday without presents, though?
And CAKE!!
We had an excellent time! I want to thank my sister and her family for the wonderful time! Happy Birthday Eli!!

So, we came home with a dozen things to do, but both of us walked in the door and dropped right into bed and slept for an hour. By the time we awoke all the light was gone and darkness had again descended on our part of the world. We ended up leaving the house again and went into town. We were bored. We finally realized we had not gotten the newest Harry Potter movie...we remedied that though, no fears there. We are now watching Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince!

So, all-in-all, it was a good day! Thanks to family for being family! Hopefully our little family will eventually grow, too.
