Happy Birthday, Old Man!

Sunday Cille got a very special treat: she got to go to Mawmaw and Pawpaw's house for the very first time!  The whole family loaded up and set out for Erwinville to celebrate that Old Man's birthday.  What is a birthday party without cake?  Stella made the most of her yummy slice of Mawmaw Shirley's chocolate cake...


We should all be so lucky as to sit shoveling chocolate cake in our mouth while Aunt Lacie holds our juice...



Mmmmm...this is the life...


While Stella was enjoying her sugar rush, this is what Cille was doing...



Quite content...



Big brother and little sister.  Hopefully Stella and Cille will like each other this much when they grow up...



The birthday boy.  He was 29...AGAIN!!!


See the resemblance?  Just kidding, Chad!



My brown-eyed girl...



I am pretty sure they are laughing at some of Stella's antics...



Still laughing at Stella...



Alaina was eager to meet "Alligator Manners," as Stella named her creation.  I guess we have watched too much Disney channel this summer...



Have you ever tried to clean Stella's face?  This picture should demonstrate why her face is usually left dirty...


Her face is still filthy, but at least she's having fun...


We visited Nick and took him some treats...



Milkbone, anyone?



Here, Nick...



This picture cracks me up.  What do you think Mawmaw Shirley was trying to talk Lacie into giving up?  Does it look like it worked?



Cille was already very happy right where she was...



Cille did eventually wake up, though Chad and Alaina do no believe it.  And she actually got a little fussy (for about 30 seconds).  Thank goodness Aunt Ruby was there to calm her down, and make sure that Cille did not obstruct my camera angle...


Stella likes to match her tongue with her eyes...



It was great to be outside the walls of our own home for the first time in a long time and to spend the day celebrating with our family. We love you all!
