Uncle Tommy's 60th Birthday Party

Last Saturday we went to my mom's brother's 60th birthday party. And we had a really nice time, the kids had a blast!


See that's them up above having a blast....well 2 of them, Brie's getting to the point where she just kind of hangs with the grown ups.....
That's my Aunt Betty (my mom's sister in law), Aunt Margaret(mom's sister, and Aunt Darlene (another of mom's sisters)
Here you have my crazy Aunt Patty, my mom, and my cousin Travis' girlfriend Kendra, she's pregnant...it's a girl! Also see the girl standing up behind my mom, that's my cousin Kim...she's pregnant too, but that baby is a surprise! I love the fact that no matter which side of the family I'm around people are having new babies...keeps my missing new babies away! lol
That's my Uncle Hank and my dad.....they were having a discussion on why my Uncle Tommy has screwdrivers stuck in the ceiling of his porch....the answer was because bees or wasps were burrowing or something...
See kid having fun again! lol
There is part of Chasity, my mom hidden behind a cup, my Aunt Donna (another of my mom's sisters) and Aunt Patty again!
Here are Chasity and Aaron...First I love these pictures because they are plotting together! And secondly because well their cute, and their mine! They are plotting to go ask Uncle Tommy if they can go swimming!
Chasity is saying see he's right there, Aaron go ask him....
If you note my kids are all color coordinated this day....my mother has this thing about color coordinating them I guess(they had spent the night before with her)....and I think the only thing that matches for all three are these outfits, because she put them on them a few weeks back when they went to a birthday party!
Here are all the kids in the pool! Hmm I don't know if I can get their names right....so I'm not going to try...some are like my third cousins...





Uncle Tommy spent some time opening presents......
He's a huge Yankee's fan, so he got a lot of Yankee's stuff...I personally loved this clock, I thought it was cool. in the bottom was 2 shelves with little Yankee's memorabilia that sat on the shelfs!
Aaron kept wanting to know who the Green man was on Uncle Tommy's cake. And now since the cake says David would probably be a good time to explain our family's use of names...
Apparently in my mom's nobody is called by their right name....take my Uncle Sonny who recently passed away..his name was Robert Andrew....but everybody knew him in the family as Sonny...that's what everyone called him. It was weird at his funeral when people from their church in the new town they lived in called him Bob...I'd never heard anyone call him that before. Bobby was his son....not him. Tommy's real name is David Thomas....but has been called Tommy since he was a baby or kid or something...that's what I've always known him as. But to his immediate family...his wife and her family...he's always been David....so that's why the cake says David.....I'll go ahead and throw in my Uncle Hank too that you saw in a picture above...his name is Morris K (K-stand for nothing it's just an initial, God bless my Granny Gunn, Hank was the baby, I'm thinking she started running out of names) according to my mom Hank didn't even know his real name was Morris til he started school.....because when he was born my Uncle Sonny said Morris is no name for a little boy.....I'm calling him Hank...so he's been Hank since then.......oddly enough my mom's other brother Kenny....that's his first name..well Kenneth..so I'm not sure why he didn't get another name...but oh well cuts down on confusion!
Look it's me........the girls wanted to take turns taking my picture....so here I am out from behind the camera...don't be scared!

Look at my little monkey's!!!!! I love this picture!

Me again........

I'm not mad...I think she caught me off guard I was listening to my Aunt Mary Anne I believe....or getting ready to talk....hmm not sure
