Games, Dress Up, and a Swim

It's a high five Wednesday.

Not sure what this costume was all about!

Such a happy girl.

Braving the chilly water.

Ready to go in for her nap...

well, maybe not.  What are those big girls doing?

Noodle Time

What a fun morning!

Graduation Day 1918

My grandmother's high school graduation pictures:
Alma Kate Wright
She married my grandfather four months later, a month before her eighteenth birthday!  Wonder if that's why she always advised me to finish college before marrying?

Since I wrote THIS, there have been even more post cards from our sweet Kate.  These came today, after the trip she and Jay took last week to celebrate their first anniversary.  Love it!

but passed is such a spectacular word, we're going to let it go!)

It's a Wonderful Life...One Year Later

A year ago, they made a promise.  
Today, they are stronger than ever.
Congratulations on your first anniversary, Mr. and Mrs. Berryman!

The cats are creeping around and hiding under the furniture, but the rest of us are delighted with this afternoon's thunderstorm.  We haven't had rain in months!

dark and stormy...awesome!

Side By Side at One

After yesterday's party, I thought it would be fun to match up pictures of Emma and Ellie with the chairs their Papa made for them as a first birthday gift.  I knew they looked like sisters but comparing them at age one shows just how strong the resemblance is!

Emma 5-4-12                                    Ellie 9-19-09

Last year on the fourth of May, we joyously welcomed Emma.  Today, we celebrated her first birthday.  Love this little girl SO much.

mild interest


everyone is cheering me on

oh, yeah

pretty darn good

big sister lovin' it, too
More of the festivities can be found here as soon as Worth and Ashley have time to recover.  What you don't see in the photos above are Emma's other guests, the bouncy house, and the general wildness that comes about when children, cake, and ice cream are combined!

So excited to find this on Craigslist...and right here in T town!  It reminds me of E.W.'s grandmother (Momee).  Any time there was a crowd for a meal, she'd sit on a stool like this instead of at the table...always at the ready to replenish the wonderful food she always served.  It's 'vintage' and needs a little love, but YAY....score!
