Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Happy Birthday!

My niece and her new softball glove at her Birthday Party!

Today we went to my sister P's house for a birthday bash for my niece. She will turn 9 next week. It's hard to believe that she is 9. My sister's and I were all pregnant at the same time 9 years ago. I had my #2, then came my niece, then came my nephew...all within 8 months. Needless to say my Mom was a little overwhelmed. She had 4 children, all natural, with no problemo, and here she had 3 girls that couldn't birth without some kind of complication and all c-sections. We managed to survive all that and are having a good time raising them. They are more like siblings than cousins. We all live within a 5 mile radius which makes that possible. I am very thankful for that.

Okay back to the b-day bash.....she had this wonderful spread of itlaian food!! We ate like pigs and enjoyed the fellowship with the family! Oh how I love b-day's! My niece had a football know it is SuperBowl Sunday. She is all about sports. Yet, on the other hand she loves to get all girly up too! She received loads of $$ and other gifts. I don't know about you, but kids these days have more $$ than I can ever remember receiving. When I'm out of cash....I just hit the wallett of son #2, if for some sort of reason he's out..which is not likely...he's my saver...then #1 should have some hid somewhere. No I don't steal, I ask permission first, then I leave an IOU. Like they are going to let me forget....NOT!!! Anyway she had a good party and we had loads of fun.

So Happy Birthday J! I hope you have a great year! Aunt Carrie loves you!!

I can't believe she is turning 9! It seems like just yesterday you guys were all pregnant and we heard all the stories of the dramatic T'family girls births! I'm glad they are all healthy and so very happy! Carter, my nephew and neice were all born within 10 months of each other and I'm looking forward to watching them grow up together!
