My Dad's Birthday

Just another excuse to hang out with my family.

Around the table starting at the bottom left are: my grandma, my sister, another sister, brother-in-law, sister who is married to previously mentioned BIL, my dad, (my stepmom's seat but she's taking the picture), my husband, our daughter and son, me with the baby on my lap, and my brother.

My dad, stepmom and little sisters had just gotten back from a cruise to Europe (my stepmom and sisters' first time there!) so they brough back these super cute aprons for the kids from a cooking class they did in Rome.

My step mom with the baby. Seriously, this is such a good picture I might have to frame it.

She laid out a serious spread of french toast casserole (similar to mine but with apples on the bottom), bagels with lox, fruit, spinach frittata... At this moment I'm realizing tht except for the bagels it was the same thing I served for an outdoor brunch on the deck we had a few months ago! Great minds think alike.

My brother holding the baby.

 My stepmom taking a picture.

My younger twin sisters are awesome with the kids.

Playign peek-a-boo. I'm sorry I wasn't this fun when I was a teenager and you were babies!

Then we wanted a picture with my grandma who is almost 91 and my three kids. Not easy. 

Everyone is trying to make the kids smile so we could get a good shot!

And then there was cake.

It was my grandma's traditional birthday cake recipe, chocolate cake with mint-chocolate frosting. Watch the little one...

My two girls with my sister.

Papa (my dad) has a boat, and a neighbor's son drives a fireboat, so the kids love being outside.

Thank you for indulging me. What good is a blog if I can't also use it as a virtual scrapbook?

Baby's facial expressions are TDC (too darn cute) and I see she has brothers blue eyes. And gramma? OMG..... to be 91 and the best looking lady around, you have inherited some good genes.
