Happy Birthday Austin!

Today is my nephew Austin's 17th birthday. We celebrated as a family last night with dinner at Jan's house, as well as the traditional opening of gifts and eating of the cake! Yum!
Gathering in the family room for the opening of presents. (And the airing of grievances... ;) )



Libby looks like she's trying to talk her daddy into something.

Interesting how the candles are reflecting off Austin's forehead!

Maddy gives Austin some help blowing out those candles.

It's Austin's party and Tempe will cry if she wants to. :)

I love the blowing out the candles shot, with the little one on the side also getting ready to "blow".
