Happy Birthday Daddy

We've been unusually busy this fall with visitors coming and going. When dinner for twelve is considered "scaling back", you know that our sense of a big family dinner is a little warped.  In fact, we realized that we haven't had fewer than twelve for dinner at least one night a weekend for the last month, and there are still a couple of weeks of twelve plus dinner plans to go. I suspect we'll take a little break from large gatherings after Thanksgiving, but it's so much fun to get together!


Erika made her "Uncle Power tools" a special necklace, which he dutifully wore.


Tenant Jesse, Great-Aunt Mary, Grandma H, Auntie Janice, Janice's boy Kevin, Uncle Chris, Auntie Yukiko, cousins Erika and Maria all joined Elizabeth and I to help Brendan properly demolish his birthday lasagna. The flourless chocolate cake was also properly appreciated, though Jesse was careful to request a piece that "wasn't covered in wax and baby spit". That's because Elizabeth insisted on "helping" blow out Daddy's candles...
