birthdays!!!

what child does not enjoy these? with five nieces and one nephew in my family, we celebrate birthdays for our little ones six times a year. i never grow tired of seeing their excited faces (usually covered in cake) and their quick, little bodies running around, playing with one another, showing us their latest tricks, and ultimately revealing their gifts. it’s all very thrilling!

my sister’s daughter celebrated her 3rd birthday on tuesday. *g* and i joined the party in the evening, and were greeted at the door by the birthday girl, her screaming older sister, their screaming younger brother, and their newest sibling. screaming with excitement, that is. ;-)

after delicious food, some very scrumptious cake, gift-giving, and gift-playing, the three young children ran around the house with us. these photos may look blurry, but they are also full of family, love, and a good sort of chaos. this is what life is all about.

    Well written my youngest! You captured the madness the mayhem and the sweetness with the photos. You didn’t even have to post a blog. They are angels but they are also very scary. That twirling shot makes me want to hide. Well done E.

  • Choose love. Thank you all for the love on my previous post. Grief is an awful thing that each and every one of us go through. I'm so thankful for this amazing community of wonderful people. I know I haven't been very present on it lately (or probably too present to some of you), but much has changed and I'm trying to focus more on "real life" as opposed to these beautiful, tiny squares that offer us snippets into other worlds. That's not to say that I find @Instagram any less important! I still consider it to be a vital part of social media and love it to death. I'm merely going through personal stuff. I plan to return to posting daily once things have settled down over here. Until then, keep showing me photographs of your lives. I cherish such views. (Here's a picture from last week's engagement session.)
