Happy Birthday to Me.

And for my birthday (though she didn’t realize it), my cousin Crystal just sent me these random pictures from her collection: This is Halis, Isaac and me at my Cousin Jeff’s wedding … being loved on by my second cousins Ana and Lauren. By the way, Isaac’s face is one of excitement … not pain […]
