Die Familie...

...gelassen das Gebäude.

This is a pic from the 80th birthday surprise party. It's all the members of my grandmother's family that could make it. A few cousins are too ill to travel that far, and my other uncle and his two sons live in Germany and couldn't make it in either, but we Skype'd them in, so it was all cool.

And the above pic pretty much expresses my sister's and my relationship. Toward the end of the party we sat down after running around all day and argued about who has the better taste in tv shows. For the record, she watches Jersey Shore. So, yeah. I win on principle alone!


  1. Great pics! I love the candidness of the last one. Classic Amber arguing her point! :-P

    Happy 80th bday to your grandma! I imagine it was a lovely day for her. :)

  2. Susanne,

    And I win! Well, not so much an actual victory since BabySis is just as stubborn as I am. But I'm *right*, so that means I win whether or not she'll admit to it! :p

    She's still in shock! But it was great.

  3. :-D Glad you won through your rightness! ;-)

    Hope you aren't still smothered by tons of paperwork! I miss your thoughts on my posts about religion. This guy may be more like you in interpreting things and I'm curious if you agree with what I've written so far about his book. If you ever have time . . . know that you are a wanted women. I value your expertise. :)

  4. Oh, the paperwork's never going away. :) I'm pretty sure it breeds when I'm not looking.

    But I've just been busy. It's been a busy month! We have my grandmother's skydiving the first weekend, and then I had my friends wedding the next, and then the surprise party! I'm done. :p

    But that's all over, and after this week I'm on vacation for a week! Woohoo!

  5. LOL @ the paper breeding when you aren't looking! Haaaa! True!

    I hope you have a great vacation. Are you going somewhere or just enjoying a relaxing time at home? How nice to vacation over your favorite holiday. What traditions do you have from your pagan days that you still keep in celebrating Halloween? Are you going to a party for it? Got a costume?

  6. I'm just staying home. I'm probably going to go to a friends house for a party and I still haven't decided on the costume. :)
