Happy birthday to the whole world...

...well, almost anyway!

October is a big month for birthdays in our family...and this week in particular. Since I would take up all my blogging topics for the week if I did invidual posts for everyone, here is one giant birthday blog post for all those born this week!

So Adam started off the week by turning 6 on the 16th, which you've already read all about.

Next on the birthday calendar is Glen's brother Eric who turned 35 on the 17th! He's one of the smartest guys I've ever met and he keeps us laughing with his wry humor and you definitely would not want to mess with him in Trivial Pursuit !

Happy birthday Eric!!!

Next is my baby brother Pete (aka Peepee). Yesterday was his 31st birthday. He's got a house full of girls, with his awesome wife Mika and their three little cuties! He's as busy as they come with a full-time job and attending night classes for law school as well...and yet he manages to do it all well. I, for one, am glad that I haven't scared him out of Virginia yet. We love having them live nearby!!

Happy birthday Pete!

And then there's my sweet sister, AnnaLisa is turning 25 today! As you may remember we had the privilege of having her stay with us last summer. Unfortunately for her, that means that we have boatloads of pictures and interesting information about her! (We love you AnnaLisa!)

I'm reposting this awesome video for your entertainment purposes! AnnaLisa fell in love with the song, "Grace Kelly" by Mika (but not our Mika) and seemed unable to restrain herself from dancing to it every time it came on. So of course being the good big sister that I am, I felt compelled to set her up so I could catch it on video! My conniving was not for naught, as she took the bait right on cue! Enjoy!

Happy birthday AL!!!

Well that concludes our birthday least for another 10 days or so!

Mom and I couldn't believe that you actually set up your poor baby sister in order to catch her in a dance. Pretty funny video. Good job A.L. We are really interested in learning some more of the scoop that you have on her.

As you already know, you are only about half through with the family October birthdays and we look forward to Emma's post for her 8th birthday and her upcoming baptism.

In addition to Emmakins, other family b-days include your Uncle Bobby who turned 51 on the 17th and your Aunt Debra who turned 30-ish on the 18th. And, of course, we must never forget old cousin Columbus' birthday on the 13th.

October is actually the second busiest family birthday month right after April. There are no birthdays in either December or February-although there are several anniversaries.

In any case, let us wish the happiest of birthdays to Eric, Bobby, Debra, Peter, A.L., Adam, and Emma et al!!

Love, Grandpa-Grandma

Our busiest month is May. I love the video, and enjoy reading your blog about your family. I don't remember much about them, but I do remember how much they made me laugh...and still today!
