Birthday party

If you know anything about me, you know that right now I'm running on fumes. I've finally uploaded/downloaded all the pictures from this month! Here are a few without my ramblings...


Oh, how I loath you September! This happens to be the busiest time of the year for this little family. The month begins with the new school year. I must confess that I do love this day!

It has been a very busy month and I must say I am not sad to see you leave!!!!
