The other day my sister hosted a birthday brunch for her oldest daughter, Olivia, who has recently turned two. My sister is quite a good cook, so I was curious to see what she would serve for brunch. As it turns out, she served a delicious breakfast casserole, along with fruit salad, muffins, coffee cake, and these delicious scones (plus, of course, juice and coffee). The scones were so pretty, I had to take a picture.
Above the table were these lovely poofy things (sorry, I don't know what you would call them) made of tissue paper. This is the sort of thing that I would never think to do, but my sister has more of an eye for pretty things than I do, I think.
My boys are old enough now to be mostly independent at social gatherings, leaving me free to socialize--and hold babies. :) Here is Caleb and Leah's youngest. She is such a cheerful and good-natured baby. This picture doesn't really capture her cuteness, but it's the best I could do.
And this is Calvin (Joseph and Carolyn's youngest) looking serious. Look, his eyes match his shirt.
A few of the children (and one adult) eating lunch. From left to right, Shona, Sarah, Jenna, Cameron, Elijah, and Noah.
Here is Julia (Calvin's big sister) reading a card to the birthday girl, Olivia. I have a hard time getting good pictures of Olivia. I have concluded that a lot of her cuteness is in the way she acts, and the way she talks, and you can't really capture that in a photo. But you can still tell that she's cute. :)
More pictures coming soon!
