Memorial Day 2008

11 years ago, we bought our house and moved in at the beginning of May. Margaret was about to turn 1, and I was past my due date with E.J. We had our families over for a 1st birthday party/house warming. The following year, it made sense to have another Memorial day party to celebrate E.J.'s 1st birthday and Margaret's 2nd. Then came Charlie, then Emma... Fitz and I laughed this morning at how many of those early parties I was either hugely pregnant, or holding a very, very newborn baby.

I wish I had started these lined up cake pictures earlier, but I love the ones I have, and it is so fun to look back each year at how much they have all changed.

Hey- found you from "Storing Up Treasures from Heaven." I am a good friend of the wife of the rockstar! Just enjoyed reading about your precious family and I love the cakes! I have a Kaleigh- spelled the same way- and I meet very few out there with the same spelling! I also have a boy who surfs (He just turned 7). Thanks for sharing about your very amazing family!!
