Birthday Celebration Part 2- Party 1

The day of the quaddies birthday we had a little birthday celebration at our house. Mike was out of town for the week so he wasn't able to be there. We served tacos, watermelon, and ice cream cake.

A few of us chatting before the party started.

Happy Birthday Rori!

Happy Birthday to my best friend, my sister, Rori. Rori has been such a blessing in my life. She is always there for me when I need a shoulder to cry on or an ear to vent to. She spoils my kids, she spoils me. I love her! I remember the day she was born. I was old enough to be her mother. I loved "mothering" her as she grew up into this beautiful young lady. Happy Birthday!

Rori and Annie- Rori's telling Annie the dangers of men

For Rori's birthday we let her play dress up with the girls. This picture of Jaileigh is a classic Jaileigh Diva look
