Two Birthdays!

This month, both Phil and Dara's birthdays are only three days apart. So we had a double celebration! Here is Dara opening a present. It was Mermaid Barbie.


Our kitty came over to check the wrapping.

Anne Marie scooped him up. She loves animals so much that she is a vegetarian.

Here are the birthday boy and girl. I got two tiny cakes because  the girls like chocolate and the boys don't.

Little Jazz is always the comedian of the family.

Here we all are! Minus one who was taking the picture. And yes, our son is crossing his eyes in the header!! Boys will be boys, even when they are middle aged.

How fun is this!? I think your Dara is adorable but my favorite pic is of Phil. He looks so good and I remember his surgery and all you both went through. It doesn't seem long key it was that long ago that we prayed and prayed for him. How wonderful to see him enjoying his grandchildren and LIFE! God is so good! Happy birthday to Dara and Phil!

I love that photo Ginny, what a lovely family shot.
Isn't it funny how often families have birthdays in the same month. Tom and our eldest were born on exactly the smae day 23rd December and there are a lot of May and March people in our family.
