Our New Family Portrait

We took a new family portrait today. Since Gabriel was putting his sketching pencil in his mouth, nose, and eyes, we figured we might as well use our faces as canvases. Matthew loves his new beauty mark! Actually, it makes him look a lot like Alton Brown. You can see in the photo above that Gabriel was actually saying "cheese"!!! We couldn't believe it - he was saying it every time!

Today was another family birthday - Patty's uncle Joe, or Joe Joe depending on whom you ask. Happy Birthday, Joe Joe! Here is our favorite photo of him:

Since we're on the subject of birthdays, we also want to wish Patty's cousin Valerie a Happy Birthday. Valerie was born on, you guessed it, Valentine's Day.
