I've Been Absent

I have been gone and lots of things have happened.

We had a birthday party for my favorite niece (Still safe to say that). She is six years old now! It's unbelievable! Seems like yesterday (or at least the day before) that we flew up here from California to see my new niece! Now, you can see she is treated like Royalty.
.
She knew exactly what she wanted. She instructed each family on how they should present their gifts to her.
Cora made my sister a dress for my beloved niece for her birthday. See the results? Cora is a mean dressmaker, seriously, when she's making dresses, she gets all mean. Well, not really...but it sounds good.

That little niece of mine make the dress look pretty fun!
Speaking of dresses, one of the men decided to wear one to the party, but I won't name names (Cough, Scott).
Of course it could be because he won best costume...even though I worked all week on mine. I had the idea to approximate the dress of European royals from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. (note the sash and cane)
Cora looked pretty dazzling, too, though. Note the fluffy toes:
My nephew came as "Peetah" from the Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe...couldn't he just double as Prince Charming?
Here is Cora and me after we had stepped through the door...it was raining outside.

The next few photos are from Martin Luther King Jr. Day. This was the view into the Gap.
The fog from our side was spilling into the Lower Valley. It even came over the top of the hills.


I think it looked pretty cool, actually...


Well, those are the pictures you missed. We don't have any big plans for the weekend...probably some cleaning and relaxing with any luck. I hope the rest of you get to relax, too!

The party looks like a really fun party. Much more fun than adult parties.
