Luke's Blessing Day
After church, we went back to the house to have dinner and cake. I say cake because we celebrated Great Aunt Cheryl & Annabelle's birthdays (Cheryl's was actually that day). Annabelle even opened her presents from her grandparents. She loved the dolls, clothes, and Minnie hair stuff that she enlisted Jiji to help her open them immediately. It really funny because once she got her fake blowdryer to work, she brought it over to Luke and started to do his hair; she even tried to put clips in Jiji's & Deda's... super silly girl. After Mema saved Luke from the perils of a big sister, the older kids took advantage of an empty Oba and had her read to them.
It ended up being a great day and, I know I've said this before, but Greg and I consider ourselves very lucky to have so many wonderful people in our family. Even if some couldn't make the journey to Texas, we know how much they love us and the feeling is definitely mutual.
