I was secretly hoping that the M names would trounce the A ones, but alas, no cigar. Thank you to my darling friends Mary (all four of you!), Marla (not me!), Melissa, Megan, Morgan, Missy, Melanie, Michelle (both of you!) and Meghan. (The A’s beat us 21 to 13. Oh, well.)
Today’s letter is “J” in honor of my sister-in-law, Jessica, who IS TURNING 30!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY (and happy Tax Day), JESS!!
If you, too, have a first name that starts with J, you’d better represent!
And if you have an idea for tomorrow’s letter (our final one–I know, so sad), let me know. I’ve just been trying to think of the most common letters off the top of my head, but I’m probably missing the obvious. S? R? C? K?
I can’t seem to stop posting pics, so here are some more of my fam in action:
This isn’t really an action shot, but isn’t my grandma cute??
Speaking of cute, I could just eat my teensy 5-year-old niece, Reese.
First cousins (with a couple adorable second cousins thrown in for good measure).
Brady (Gabe’s cousin Lori’s 2-year-old) and Ava are buddies.
Gabe’s brother Tug (do you see why I call him the Class Clown on Steroids?).
Nina and Grandma sharing an Icee at the zoo.
Isabelle dreams of another delicious frozen bite.
Nina playing croquet with Grandma Taviano.
Miley and Livi (sporting her best can’t-we-get-a-puppy? face). Answer: no.
Confetti eggs!! My friend Sandi in San Antonio introduced us to them last April, and we found some in SC half-off at Kroger after Easter. So much fun!
And there you have it. And lest you think we have boundless energy to be having so much fun, we pretty nigh used it all. We’re pooped.
Happy Tax Day, all! If your name starts with J, don’t hold back!
