And Daddy dear! And Jon dear!
Wicked crazy though it may be, not only was my brother Jon born on my daddy's birthday, but my little Mack was, too... I know, right? Freaky. A totally unplanned coincidence! As a matter of fact, she was two weeks early...
You see, when I was eight months pregnant I had this brilliant notion to carry an armload of firewood across an icy, snow-covered road. In the dark. Yep. There was... an incident. It involved some falling. And some cursing. And some crying. And some more cursing. Mostly directed at TGIM for letting me carry an armload of freaking firewood across an icy, snow-covered road IN THE DARK! Anyhoos, short story long, I could only hold off the premature labor contractions for so long, you know? A few weeks later, voila. Baby. Born on her grandpa's and uncle's birthday. Badda bing, badda boom.
So I present a photo tribute to the birthday boys and girl (because I'm short on time, OKAY?!)! I hope you ALL have a fabulous birthday. (I know Mack will. Twelve girls will be invading my home momentarily for her "Almost Sleepover" birthday party. TWELVE 8-YEAR-OLD GIRLS, y'all! "Almost" sleeping over! I'm scared. Somebody hold me.)
1st Generation B-Day Boy!:
Daddy! (Please attempt to ignore the freaky sisters. Good LORD, you two.) Obviously Dad and I missed the Make The Most Unattractive Face EVER memo. We had NO idea.
2nd Generation B-Day Boy!:
Jon! (and the wifey, Sara) Seriously. I want to deep condition that boy's hair SO bad! C'mon Jon! Just once! He DID let me braid some wicked cornrows this one time. That? Was AWESOME.
3rd Generation B-Day Girl!:
Yep. There's my cheesy girl.
You can't go wrong with Princess Leia cinnamon buns, that's all I'm saying...
Flippin' SWEET! Gosh!
My sweet little Hannah Mack! Happy birthday, cutie.
This party is going to Rock! Thanks for your great posts!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HANNAH (et al)!!!!
In the school picture (which is SOOO cute) I thought the "learning quilt" thing said "learning guilt." And I was like, "They're learning guilt? That ain't right." But if they were to learn guilt, I should totally be a guest speaker.

Happy Birthday to allayas!
I don't think that H's smile could be any more fantastic. How on earth do you discipline that child when she looks like she came from a Cicely Mary Barker Fairy Book?
