As I posted yesterday, it was indeed a busy weekend. Not only was it Easter, but there was wedding planning and shopping, the computer incident, and very importantly Cuppa's birthday. I'm going to show a number of birthday/family shots especially for the newercomers.
We began the day with a family breakfast. Nearest to the camera are Thesha and Theboy. They're the ones who live in our town and the parents of Nikki Dee. The ladies at the back are Puff (near me) and Althegal (by Cuppa). They live in Vancouver and both are or will be going to UBC in the fall. Puff will be working on her PhD and Althegal on her MA. These two will be saying their vows in August. (Yes, I know that is a difficult concept for some.)
Her Dad was sitting across the table from her and decided to play with The Bonnie Wee One by blowing into her face. What joy for life! I love how children are so authentic at this age. They haven't yet been alterred by peer pressure and socialization but are their wonderful, undissembling selves.
Here's a photo of Mom and Althegal at the restaurant. There was a much better shot of the two of them, but it was nothing but an empty file behind the thumbnail. It was very strange. These two have certainly dipped in the same genetic pool. It's odd that while Althegal favours her mother, Thesha looks much more like me, but we have some pictures from the earlier years where they definitely look like sisters.
In the evening, the girls cooked birthday supper for Cuppa and the clan, after which we took another family photo sans Little One who was slumbering by then.
But she looked ever so cute after her bath and before bed.
The next photo was shot sometime during gift opening. Now you know where Nikki Dee gets her joy for life.
Cuppa quite enjoyed her gifts, such as these watercolor pencils. If you haven't noticed it before, Cuppa wore her tiara for both the breakfast and supper. Both Thesha and Cuppa have tiaras that they wear when they watch the Oscars, and they sometimes come out for other occasions as well.
So endeth Foto Friday for another week. Have a good weekend.
