We're a close family. There are always get togethers, for each person's birthday, seasonal events, just-because events etc. Son #2 Grayson and Granddaughter #7 Ella Be happen to share a birthday, so we got together this last w/e for that. It's always raucous and loud and silly when the kinfolk get together....very informal and goofy. Lorelei being silly...she loves her Gramma! cousins and uncles The birthday people opening gifts We put sparkler trick candles on Ella's cake. Fun!!
