I hope you had a lovely weekend. And I also hope you are eager for tons of photos! I had a very, very busy week.
Yes, a good chunk of my week looked like the above. Editing and proofreading like mad! From the Dark to the Dawn is coming right along, but July 18th will be here none too soon for me!
We celebrated our adopted cousin Jonathan's 18th birthday on Friday. It was very fun, as always!
Lydia, Kelsey, and I decided to update photos together, since we haven't done a group shot in quite a while!
Oh, Joshua was at work. So we took a picture of us holding a picture of him. So he was kind of there!
Yes, it took a while to get that shot!
Cousins, cousins.... :)
I was practicing my photography in all of the above... Lovely ladies, don't you think?
When we came to the sad realization that we had not done any selfies together, we decided to do some!
Methinks Jonathan really liked the special car cake Lydia made for him. I couldn't tell, but it looks a bit like a Nazi racer, doesn't it? :)
It was a lovely day. We played some volleyball too (the Mesa Mochiattos and Desert Sand Spartans are at it again!) and I am delightfully sore and bruised.
On Saturday, we celebrated Stephen and Isaac's birthdays and Mother's Day for Mom and Grandma.
My Grandpa bought me a delightful Jim Bowie knife!!! It is around 25 years old, is an amazingly well-crafted replica, and is heavy. And I know how to use it. Your fun fact for today is that it was originally called the Arkansas Toothpick back in the 1800s. (Of course, if you read Remembering the Alamo, you know that already!)
Oh, yes. It's sharp. Don't even think of messing with me, people! ;)
All I need. The Bible. A weapon. And coffee.
Birthday Boy #2!
The many expressions of Stephen....
Disclaimer: it's sparkling cider, people. ;)
Grandma and her special Mother's Day basket.
Oh, did I mention we have baby bunnies? :)
And we had Mother's Day!
Hope all you Mom's had a fabulous Mother's Day! How was your weekend?
