Look who stopped by for Summer & Tessa's birthday...

First off let's give credit to Summer & Tessa for going easy on me this year b/c they decided they wanted to share a cake and all they cared about was having umbrellas on it...simplest cake ever

 but their favorite news of the week was when I announced that Grandma and Aunt Tammy were going to be here on their 7th birthday! they squealed with excitement.
they were so happy to be spoiled by our guests

 thomas loved being a part of the action
 what he didn't love was how hard Aunt Bam Bam made him work

and work

 and work
 at learning to walk
(no, it doesn't come naturally to my kids)

um, aunt bam bam?

my mommy chooses not to feed me this kind of junk food so you better take it back

Summer and Tessa still say the cutest things and I'd like to keep them little just like this picture.
While driving alone with Tessa we drive through the community gate and she says "that man has a hard job...he has to smile aaand help the gate open. What if he has a bad day...does he still have to smile?"

thomas loved all the personal attention he got from this girl so he started calling her mama.

then Tammy had to stay home from church with Thomas b/c for sure he wasn't feeling great ;)
so she reorganized our shelves to look more appealing than how I just unpacked a box & threw stuff on there.

We loved our evenings out but James couldn't really capture the moment & blamed the camera for his ghostly pictures

oh well.

Tammy had him dressed and hair styled by 9am every day & the product she put in his hair made him smell like he just crawled out of a salon.

My Mom is always worried about pictures of her being posted so she always has her make up on before she leaves her room in case my camera catches her but at 66 she has already aged better than me.

she made this boy practice walking everywhere

to be continued someday b/c my blog photo downloader has froze on me. Just have our goodbye photos to end a great week but I am sorry the weather had to turn cold on you guys especially since Tammy didn't even bring a jacket or a long sleeved shirt. Ya, she's funny like that.

Ghostly picture...aka drunk girls!!! I love that family visits you so are loved. I loved what the girls said about the gate man..If I was a gate person the gate would never open if I had to smile.
