Birthdays, Birthdays, and more Birthdays

Growing up my family had what my mom dubbed 'birthday alley'.  It ran from August until October with Mom's and mine and my younger sister's birthdays in August, my older sister in September and finally my dad in October.  We have our own 'birthday alley' at our house.  It runs from the end of July until October.  By the end of October, I'm about done with cake and ice cream (okay, maybe just cake because I LOVE ice cream).  Six of us have birthdays during this stretch, Claudia is the only one who doesn't (hers is in February) - that ensures that she gets her own birthday post :).

Winter Wonderland

We've had 2 major snow events in  less than 7 days.  The kids have been out of school for a total of 4 days.  They are about stir crazy and I'm ready for school to reopen :).

Claudia's 10th Birthday

 She didn't find what Dad did to the numbers on her cake amusing...
Blowin' 'em out

I was only able to get 3 pictures before my camera battery died.  I need to get a new one because the old one won't hold a charge anymore.
