Birthday Girls

Yesterday was September 20, 2011 and it was Cali and Parker's birthdays. And in case you are looking on the time stamp on the picture... YES IT IS WRONG! I thought I had removed it but instead it went back to the factory setting. Oh well,... on with the post.

My Birthday girls on their day as we were leaving to go to dinner.

It would be impolite to tell you Cali's age, but Parker is 1 year old and was born on her mom's 33rd birthday...

Cali's best birthday present she was when she stepped out of the house and her sister Jesse said, "Geeze Cali, you look like a toothpick!"
FYI- Jesse is now holding the "favorite sister status" for Cali.

I made Cali a Sopapilla Cheesecake for her birthday cake. It was delicious. I am sure she had some this morning for breakfast! Happy Birthday Girls!

Birthdays and Babies

What a wonderful week for the Cunningham family! I spent the week with Jesse and Kelly as we awaited the arrival of their little girl. We set up the nursery, finished the fall yard work, washed the windows (with Jesse doing the outside windows going up and down the ladder. I know, I know.... But she is a lot like her mom and insisted on doing most of this work herself, either hoping it would put her in labor or afraid of me hurting myself or breaking something :-) and mostly waiting and waiting.

On Friday Cami went into labor and gave birth to Gage William Guffey in the early evening.

Gage (or as Aunt Cali calls him G.W.) weighed in at 7 lbs. 2 oz. and was 19.5 inches long.
He was 1 day past his due date.

Lily and Ransom love their little brother. Here Ransom tries to share his cracker with him.

Lily is having fun being a little mother to Gage.

Of course Jacob is proud and happy of his little family.

Yo Ho Ho! We are so happy you are here with us little Gage.

Although Parker's 1st Birthday is on Tuesday we celebrated it on Saturday when the whole family could be there. Gideon showed me all the decorations he helped put up and was very proud to fulfill his official job - Hat and party blower passer outer. :-D

Parker was so happy to have Daddy home. Travis helped her watch Gideon open all of her presents as she didn't really know what to do.

Hey Grandpa.... I am thirsty.

Everybody sing - Sister, Sisters... Phyllis and Daniece (Nana).

Kelly and Jesse just hours before she went to the hospital.

All these are for me?

Yes, it's fun to be one! Love the cake Cali! (Bwaaaahhhhh!!)

Gideon taking the opening of sisters presents very seriously.

I know you lost a lot of weight Cali, but it looks a little small for you. Love the Scottie Dog though!

Saturday night Jesse and Kelly went to the hospital and Sunday we had another beautiful Grandbaby. Tyree Kay Crystal!

The happy Crystal Family!

Tyree is a little bigger than her new cousin, of course she was 11 days overdue...

She arrived at 3:00 in the afternoon and weighed 8 lbs .06oz. and is 21 inches long.
She is a round little thing and has quite a bit of hair.

The Aunties couldn't wait to hold her. Cali and Randi Jo fawning over little Tyree.

Grandma Jolene and her new baby girl.

Aunt Cali and little Tyree.

The Proud Grandmas, the beautiful mama and our little bundle of joy!.....

Tyree Kay Crystal!

P.S. - The dates on all of these pictures are one day ahead of what they should be. No matter how many times I change it it is still wrong. I am now trying to take the date stamp off all together.

Sunday Memories

On Sunday Sept. 4th after Church we went over to Grandma Louise's for a short visit.

We also had a chance to run by the Cabin in Carbon. We even went inside....

From Sept. 1995 to Jan. 2, 1997 this little cabin was part of our home. The 4 oldest girls slept up in the loft. Shiloh was amazed that the wreath they hung up was still there.

There is no longer a bridge or road across the creek here. It was a little sad to see, but we have a lot of fun memories of the place. I didn't realize that Cody had not been back to see it since we moved away in January 1997.

All he needed was Two Socks and Woody. :-)

Eppert Family Reunion

The winning team of the Family Golf Scramble.

Labor Day weekend means tons of fun in Indiana at the Eppert Family Reunion. Cody and I stayed at Patty and Chuck’s. Shiloh and Jason also stayed there and the kids were thrilled to see Uncle Cody for the first time in 2 years!


We checked out Chuck’s new Koi pond.


Saturday Morning was the Golf Scramble at Marc’s Par 3. We start with breakfast and some visiting and then divide into teams.


Sunday Afternoon is great food and a lot of fun and games.

Here are the Team Captains. Cindy, Laura, Clay and Amy. The games we played were based on the TV game show ‘Minute to Win It’. It was a lot of crazy fun!


Wish you could have been there. I love my family!
