Better Late Than Never

I'm late with Lorelei's B-day pics! Bad, I know. But my camera battery died and I kept forgetting to charge it. Oops!

Last Saturday, Niki had Lorelei's 1st Birthday Party! And you know- the kiddos eating that first cake is just the best.

Oooh, cake and fire!

This cupcake is nice... but can I have all of them?

Happy girl with her cake face

Big bro digs in too (really, are their faces not the cutest??)

cake fingers!!

We all had a blast. And after 15 or so adults and their children (10 total) I took a 2 hour nap!

Since I didn't have a blog when Aury was one- here are pics from her first birthday (she's almost 3 now, but whatever!)
Yep- we gave her chocolate.
She used her toes as well as her fingers. And I'm pretty sure we ruined the hotel towel!

I feel like Aury was worse- but maybe it's because we didn't have her in a chair and we gave her chocolate. She certainly got her entire body involved, though!
And can we talk about her hair for a sec- did she not look like a 20s-era babe with that cutie do?

I ADORE my nephews and nieces. Can you tell? Is it odd to be so obsessed with other people's children?

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
