Grandma B came with her bag of goodies, which the kids always love.
Our "cousin" Cam was over to enjoy the celebration with us.
Emma loves her Grandma B and so do we!
Kaela's present to Jord was a homemade card with a balloon on it and $5 inside.
Anna's made him a card too, and gave him a little more cash for his stash.
Grandma S and Grandpa J came for birthday cake. Their card was stuffed with greens, as usual. The kids' faces always light up when they see it.
On my day of 3 lacrosse games, 2 volleyball games and 1 dance competition (plus Troy was out of town) I forgot to get the birthday candles, so we had to settle for a popsickle stick instead. It was perfect, though, for the boy that has always loved fire! It smelt good too!
The gang singing him the song!! Matt was missing in-action that day. He'd decided that he'd rather go to his room than help with dinner and clean up.
By the way, his shirt says "united" in Greek. It's the Alta lacrosse shirt for 2009.
Emma decided to take the documenting into her own hands. It's nice to have proof that I'm part of the family. It's easy to forget who's behind the camera.
