no one knows why it is always about 10 degrees warmer there than anywhere else in the valley, or what those poor, wretched animals do all day???
regardless we still kind of love it, and i am glad we went.
however, these sleeping ones were, and honeslty how sweet are they?? she may be a crazy, grumpy, screaming, hitting, no-no, 1 year old, but gosh darnnit, when she closes those eyes she is so beautiful.
i do just love her... despite all her craziness.
our weekend was wonderful... as i hope all of yours was too.
yes, and if minie is up again at 5:45 am this morning, she will officially be up for some type of auction. let us know...
thank you steve and alice again... it was lovely!

let's all just heave a gigantic **SIGH**.
after spending the entire evening trying to get 12 babies to cooperate and hold still, these are the best results. all the pics have an over all blurriness to them ,with heads, limbs, and even entire babies missing at times.
i think we farred out pretty well considering.... :)
and even cuter grandgirls...
the whole brood.... caught blurred.
what can i do?? had you been there you would understand...
and last, but certainly not least,
the people responsible for such adorable mayhem.
(dad, you can thank me later for the quick teeth whitening...)
i got your back :)

It has been tradition on my side to go to the hot air balloons every year, and even though it's painful to wake up so early on a holiday, it is something I love to do. All of my siblings (even the out of towners) come to attened the occasion, and rarely is one of us not there. My parents drug us there year after yer, and I suppose it just stuck.. we are now all fully committed 4th of July ballooners.
So there ya have it.
Sere... you might want to make it a priority next year to attend.
just consider it.
Miranda and Asher are my brother's kids... they are our california babies, and we don't see them enough. Miranda is Minie's peronal babysitter, and Minsie couldn't love her more... I couldn't either :)
Ash was just too tired after the early morning, and then some how didn't manage a single nap all day. The results were a little brutal...
We then carried on the fesitivities to the Jackson's for a bar-b-que and fireworks. Dinner was yum, and Minie has never been more afraid than she was during the firework display... somehow we still kept lighting them off..

we started out the day with presents and a birthday breakfast at home with mommy and daddy... a quick photo shoot too of course.
after breakfast and a nap, we headed down to nannie's for the party.
this picture is featured here for no other reason than to document her damn cake. i ordered this for her a few days in advance and in a flustered, senseless moment forgot to ask the final price on such extravagance. long story short, $100, and an intense argument with dustin and the bakery later, we ended up with this very expensive, and very non-refundable pastry.
**SIGH**... nothing but the best for miss mins
(note: it was immensely tasty however...)
