Reezie and Company

Maria-9

My sister Maria (aka "Reezie") and her family should be nearly back to their Florida home by now.

They semi-surprised us all (with just a few days' notice) that they were making a quickie visit north for Halloween.

Our other sister Barb drove up from Bloomington and we all converged at Mama's for a day of food and laughter.

Barb couldn't believe that not-quite-12-year-old Wyatt is nearly as tall as she is!

 

Maria-18

And 8-year-old Seanna is growing up way too fast too!

In what has become a yearly tradition, we have a birthday cake to celebrate everyone's birthday that we don't get to celebrate with them during the year.  Barb is our designated birthday-cake-decorator...

 

Maria-3

...but she may lose her job since apparently she struggles with the spelling of "birthday."

Crazy things happen when the House girls get together!

 

Maria-7

So...our birthday cake turned into a "Birday" cake, complete with a few feathered friends to add to the theme.

Although Mama thought the bird in the upper left was actually a cat doing a handstand...

Scary, but I can totally see that!

 

Maria-6

Perhaps its not an example of prize-winning cake artistry, but we did get a lot of laughter just decorating it together.

 

Maria-8

Bless Michael's heart...he sometimes doesn't know quite what to think of his fun-loving, giggly sisters-in-law!

But he's a good sport and we're so thankful he brings Maria and the kids back home to Indiana once in awhile.  Because, as we all know, a Florida to Indiana road trip with two kids is not exactly a leisurely drive...

 

Maria-2

Of the three of us, Maria favors Mama the most.  Barb and I are always told we look like Dad (just what every girl/woman wants to hear!).

 

Maria-13

We've all inherited Mama's creative craftiness, and Barb is the queen in that arena.  She brought along some of her newest creations, including this infinity scarf that she made. 

 

Maria-17

Love, love, LOVE my seestas!!!

 

Maria-9

And a good time was had by all!

Such fun to share some wonderful family time with...

...Reezie and company.
