Saturday was the birthday party and a football cookout afterwards. And today we had more time with family. Here are a few pictures of yesterday's festivities.
Lydie had been asking for days and days, "Is tu-day my patty?" "How many moe days til my patty?" By golly, she was ready for her party!
Toot read the cards to Lydie. Surprisingly, she listened.
The one and only thing Lydie enjoyed about her cousins missing her big day...she got to open all the presents herself. And she was determined! Here she is laying across her gift, tearing the paper to shreds like an old pro.
The dinner spread...southern style! Ribs, bbq chicken, hashbrown casserole, salad, garlic bread. Add iced tea and lemonade and you can taste the southern roots!
None of the boys, big or small...
would stop eating.... (Poppy, my Dad)
long enough... (Papa, my father-in-law)to pose for a picture!
But the ladies posed beautifully! (Nana, my Mom)
I love this picture! (Mimi- my mother-in-law)
War Eagle! (Look Aunt Kim, she's already wearing the cheerleading outfit! It was the perfect size with just the right amount of room to grow. Thank you!)
