Birthday Birthday

Late, but not forgotten!
My mom and niece share a birthday 2 days after Christmas, meaning that with holiday craziness it doesn't always feel very special. So this year we celebrated late to make sure they both got to feel as special as well all think they are.

Now that our house is pretty much completed (inside at least) it was fun to have the family over to celebrate with us. I got really excited and decorated with a bunch of balloons, a banner, streamers, and even made them some fun party hats.

Great - Great

Photobucket

Just before Christmas, Abby got to meet her Great-Great Grandma Dorathy. She is the sweetest lady alive and it was so funny to watch these two together. I have never seen grandma giggle so hard in my life at the silly things Abby was doing and Abby was awake and alert as could be just staring up at grandma.
