Our April peeps

As we do every April, we set aside some time to all get together and celebrate our April peeps. 

Some April peeps are more excited than others to celebrate....

While others would rather we not acknowledge their age...

And others turned a monumental age this year....

But only ONE had their picture on the table.

Yeah, she's spoiled.

But you are only young once, let's celebrate it up!

Speaking of young, I'm gonna eat this little guy up with a spoon BECAUSE HE IS DELICIOUS. But he doesn't really like me, he prefers his mom. Whatever.

But yes, we celebrated our April loves.

I wonder if other families do all this? The birthday person has to sit in the chair at the front of the room while the rest of us watch on as they open their gifts. Then we oooooo and ahhhhhh over what they got. Is this normal?

And yes, some people in the family get more gifts than others.

Jo's sad face, and Hope's happy face, are a dead give away 'bout who that might be.

Some members of the family are less amused with presents and find the stairs more appealing.

But for the rest of us, we enjoy the show.

But the show really takes off for us when we head over to sing and have cake.

Or pie. Whichever it is you prefer.

My brother sings at the top of his lungs, and it is AWFUL.

Like THIS awful.

But the kids think it's HILARIOUS.

I guess we are a little crazy, but I happen to love it.

Happy Birthday my April loves! Life would sure be boring without you three.

My family isn't normal and we never celebrated birthdays. I mean my mom always got me something but nothing was a celebration. We do celebrate with Steve's family, but nothing huge. Your family celebrations pretty much kick butt.
