Well, birthday season is most definitely in full swing. The (local) season starts slow, with Marcus' birthday in August. Then three in September--Bunny, grammae, and Emmett--and just me in October. Shane and Aidan at the end of November, then Nicole and Mariposa in December. And BAM five local birthdays in January (papa, Gemma, James, Auntie Meghan and Uncle Brian) and 2 more in early February (girl cousins). Busy!!! With each of these birthdays comes a birthday PARTY so our social calendar is very full. Sometimes we do double-up parties though. Then it slows down to once a month in March, May, and June, and none in April or July as of yet.
Anyway...here are pics from Mariposa's birthday parties....
