Doodles Family Party

Happy 10th birthday Doodle.  Love this girl.  both sets of grandparents, her aunt and uncle and two cousins, and us.  Well Doddle's family....of course.  It was crazy but different than having so many kids all the same age.  She is having a slumber party this weekend with friends.
This cutie is her youngest brother that you have seen before on Cozy Blanket.  I will be taking care of them the next three days.  Then school starts and they go back to their sitters.  Wish I lived closer.  I did that drive for 5 years.......just can't do that anymore.  This little guy is allergic to everything.  Big allergy reactions.  It can be scary.
The cupcakes had to be made because no bakery could promise that their wouldn't be cross-contamination.  I thought they were cute.
This is her older little brother.  He is like a comic book character.  The things he does and oh my the things he says.
I had to show you their 6 month old cousin.  I first saw her at three months.  I know my mouth dropped to the floor.  She was so chubby.  Her mom is probably a size 1 or 3. She is so big.  Those cheeks are even bigger than they look.
Doodle gave her grammys and me nanny pedicures.  Guess which feet are mine.
The boys needed to go outside to run some energy off.  So Grandpa Cozy was the one in charge.  Before the party Doddle's dad asked if he was coming.  He said he was glad because he would help with the kids.  While this was going on the real grandpa was sound asleep on the couch.
I feel blessed to feel such a part of this family. 
I am resting today to prepare for the next three days.

What wonderful family photos. I feel so bad for the little guy with all the allergies. My kids were like that too. The good news is that over time, a lot of the allergies will go dormant and others will be treatable with meds and diet changes. Enjoy your visit with the kids. Hugs, Edna B.

Debby, That is so cute. We can love others as if they were our own family. I have my daughters besides my own. I become Nana to my daughter's 5th grade class every year. That is one big baby. xoxo,Susie
