The weekend started off with a baby shower for Brittany's sister-in-law Kate.
Here are Brittany's sister-in-laws...Katie, Kate, & my little sis. Kate has a little over a month to go but she was super tiny!
It has been a very long time since Brittany and I have had the same hair style. We're usually the opposite of each other, one usually keeps it long and the other short. We were both pretty anxious to get our hair cut after her wedding. Brittany's was long enough she was able to send her's to Locks of Love.
After the baby shower, we had quite a bit more celebrating to do for all of the November birthdays. We went to a great Italian restaurant called Buca di Beppo. And ordered everything family style.
This is our friend Michael and my brother Marc. I think Michael is trying to take a picture of me taking a picture of them with his cell phone.
They brought out two large candelabras for the birthday people to make a wish. And after dinner we headed back to my Me-ma and Papa-Tony's house to open presents and have dessert.
Josh wanted me to document my brother Marc opening up his birthday gift. But first, let me explain that his bday gift was supposed to be a care package we were going to send him that I failed to send. To his gifts are kind of random, but then again, we are kind of random. Below you will find a key chain with Josh's profile picture. Don't worry, my picture is on the other side. I was taken back when my sister saw the keychain and asked for one. Maybe we'll give them out as Christmas gifts this year.
There were quite a few other random things in his gift bag, but his real gift was this book The Oxford Guide to Philosophy. He's currently in a master's program of biblical studies but I believe is hoping to continue his education in philosophy.
Brittany's birthday is on the 19th so I loved being able to give her her gift in person. I love giving gifts to my family but Brittany is my favorite person to shop for. Brittany loves turtles and when I saw these adorable stickers I couldn't resist getting them for her. Don't worry, I didn't just get her stickers for her birthday.
