Catching Up - Anne's Birthday

The beginning of January saw Anne's 40th birthday. Her sisters, Aunt Marta and Aunt Helena, both came into town to help celebrate.

The last time, I believe, that the entire Murvosh clan was together this picture was taken:

This most recent time the entire Murvosh clan was together this picture was taken:

You might notice that Anne's hair looks a bit lighter in the second picture. No, that's not from gray hairs popping out now that she's (almost) 40 (in the picture). For her birthday she went and got her hair styled and colored. She had some lighter highlight streaks put in it. It looks really good.

Anne's hand-knit socks from Grandma B arrived in the mail. Sydney had to get in on the picture.

Sydney also got some socks from Grandma B. Her's arrived early because Grandma B wanted her to have them before it was too warm to wear them. All of our socks were knit from yarn we picked out and sent to Grandma B for her birthday. (Along with yarn Sydney picked out for Grandma B for her own socks.) I didn't get a picture of Sydney with her socks, but maybe I'll try to do that and get a picture with me with my birthday socks that just arrived.

We held Anne's party at Mark and Jackie's house. Not only is it larger with a basement, but Mark has a Wii set up down in the theater in the basement where we were able to play Guitar Hero and Rock Band.

Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate. While we hardly got any snow this year we did get several weeks of sub-freezing weather. And Anne's party coincided with a day of rain and sub-freezing temperatures. So work friends that were supposed to come over from Spokane had to cancel due to the weather. But we still had a great time.

And my 40th birthday is in just a couple days. Wow. Are we really that old?

Happy Birthday Anne! I'm excited about my upcoming quick visit from Aunt Helena and I'm jealous every time you post about the socks. Does Grandma B have an etsy store?
