Last night was our small group get-together, so we had some cake to celebrate Vivian's birthday. We weren't expecting our friends to bring gifts, but they did anyway because they love us and our kids. Living here in Mineola has been difficult for us, but our small group friends have made it a lot easier. We love them very much.
Big brother looking handsome. I'm sure he was very supportive of the birthday, even though it wasn't his.
Garrett already taking over Vivian's birthday present. It was just a matter of time.
Opening presents. Our favorite baby-sitter, Kylie, looks on.
Kylie gave Vivian a bag of hair accessories (clips, headbands, scrunchies...)
Our peeps (L to R: Kylie, Butch, Lee, Ann, Alice, Kathy)
Dawson was unimpressed with the birthday festivities. He was way into coloring his Veggie Tales sheet. He's a great colorer. He stayed inside the lines and everything.
Vivian was scared of the candles so Melissa and Garrett had to blow them out for her. In this picture she is saying, "Hot!" and blowing at the candles from a safe distance.
If Vivian could speak intelligibly, "I can't believe I ate the whole thing."
