A year away ...

.... from being 30 ... is Elizabeth! (Yesterday was her birthday.)
Here she is with her mother (my twin Peggy) years ago...


Now she has a family of her own...

I like to look closely at that picture. (I think it's priceless.)

Last night we celebrated her birthday, along with my mom's (whose birthday party was postponed twice because of the infamous winter weather earlier this month)...

It was a fun night. I wish, though, that I'd gotten a picture of everyone there... which included Will, Bailey, Laura, Ryan, John, Caroline, Andrew, Anna, AND my Aunt Helen and Uncle Frank! (And Sam and me, of course.)

------
Another VERY special birthday yesterday was SAWYER'S! Today he's one year old and a day.
Here he was last year...
And here he was last month...
Any day now he's going to start walking... so watch out, his cuteness will be everywhere!
----
Speaking of walking... Ryan is using a cane now! That's pretty major.

Well, as you know, there is craziness happening all over the world.
Thank you for taking a peak at my little corner.

Oh wow! I love the picture of Elizabeth and her mom! (I can tell you're twins!!)

Sawyer is a cutie!!

Those cupcakes look YUMMY! But they're probably the last thing I need. ;)

I love your little corner of the world. :)

Your corner of craziness makes me happy! Great news about Ryan's progress -- that's so good. And Sawyer - oh my. He's a cutie. I too really love that photo of Peggy and Elizabeth. You have a family full of beautiful women and precious babies!!!

I love your little corner. It is a place we can come to feel the warmth of a family, the traditions we grew up with and the feeling of belonging that is missing from so much of what we do in the fast-paced busyness of the world today. Nancy, don't ever stop blogging...you've a gift for bringing us in and creating a loving community. Love you and all that you do!

Thank you for posting this sweet post!!! I love that picture of my mom and I and I will forever treasure it. I think she looks SO beautiful there - and I think you look EXACTLY like her (which is fitting, considering you're identical!)

Thank you for the wonderful party!! You know how to make people feel special!
