Today is Meme's birthday and we were able to spend the whole weekend with her! We had a great time and got to see lots of fun folks. Catherine Ellis sure loves her Meme and our only wish is that she lived closer to us!
On Saturday we traveled to Auburn to see Uncle Andrew and Aunt Kim and have a birthday dinner for Mom - a fun time was had by all. Here are a few pictures from Saturday's festivities:
I like that pot - wonder how much noise I can make with it (bright flash!)?
We love you Meme!! We are so thankful you were born because the world certainly would not be the same without you! Thank you for being a wonderful mother, meme, and mother-in-law. God has truly blessed us with you! Here's to many, many more birthday celebrations!
Something else that is pretty happy is Catherine Ellis - she is the happiest baby and quite the ham - she has kept us in stitches the last few weeks with her playful nature and the funny things she does on a daily basis. She LOVES to entertain (David, anyone??) and LIVES to be the center of attention (I ask again, David??)! Here she is hamming up at the dinner table - what a joy she is!
And last but not least, we'll leave you with a video of her latest performance at the dinner table - she tried carrots steamed for the first time (pretty chunky and not near as smooth as they've been the past several months) so the texture was different. Catherine Ellis realized that when she made the funny face we all laughed, so she continued to do it to get a rise from her audience. She would make the face and then peek through her eyes to make sure everyone was watching and of course, laughing - I introduce you to our tiniest comedian, Catherine Ellis Cain:
Have a great first week of March! Hard to believe we're a quarter of the way through 2010!
