Family Parties

aria-photo-18

Howdy, folks!

My family has had two parties in the last few weeks. Somehow, there’s a lot of birthdays in our family – probably because there are 8 kids down at my aunt’s house. *shakes finger* You go broke buying presents for that family. Anyhoo, between my aunt coming down from Canada (who has a birthday in December) and the six in my other aunt’s family who have birthdays in December/January, we had our dose of parties.

(Not to mention, my dad and granddad have birthdays in January as well – if we celebrated them with my uncle and the kids, that’d be nine…*shakes head*)

Ahem.

SURPRISE!

First, my mom and I planned (okay, it was much more my mom who planned it, but I took pictures, kay?) a surprise party for my aunt! That made the fourth (and last, thank goodness) surprise party of the year. Aunt C loves dachshunds (and has three) so my mom themed it a blue dachshund party.

the card I watercolored for her… :)

And my pretty aunt, before we went to dinner one night… 😉 (I gave her that necklace – isn’t it so pretty? I need to get one for myself one of these days.)

Lastly, here’s the party my (other) aunt did! She and my uncle did a great job decorating the house. :)

I showed my aunt this picture and she was like, “You should really do [professional] food photography”. It would be fun. AHHH THE BLUR AND BOKEH, Y’ALL.
