So here are some photos. I generally don't post lots of pictures for 2 reasons, both of them based on hyperbole.
1. It's not safe, creepy people will hunt me down and murderize me the minute I post a photo.
2. It's a slippery slope to just posting pictures, all of myself, making the same weird posing smile while shopping at Anthropologie 24/7and scrapbooking. *
Then I realized that as long as I'm reasonable (not posting our home address, not turning into a mormon princess,) that it is probably ok to post pictures sometimes.
So pictures! From the party!
Is there anything better than an interpretive dance by a four year old? I thought not. Behold my cousin, Jane.
The final bow.
I don't know why cousin Jared has that hat on, but don't you wish your cousin was so cute?
And my other favorite cousin, Gabe, with my aunt, Andy. Gabe is famous for seeing an employee in a Walmart store who looked like, well, Jesus, and shouting, "'Sup Jesus! Hey! Hey Jesus!" When the employee didn't respond, Gabe got a bit annoyed and yelled "Hey Jesus, I KNOW YOU!" So that's why we all love Gabe.
And we must include the very serious baby Ella. Ella is a very serious baby. She always looks rather solemn, and does not enjoy giggling, cuddling, or my gentle attempts to gnaw at her thigh. She is barely tolerating my holding her. But I can respect that, I don't like people gnawing at my thighs or expecting me to be cute, either. My sister grace, on the right, is a much more pleasant child
To prove that there were also grown-ups at the party: My mother, on the right, and my aunt Janene on the left. Proudly sporting the pins my Grandma sent them from New Mexico.
There is more, but this whole picture process is time consuming, and I'm over it.
*Choose not to be offended.
