A Full Nest

bday 5 of 8 1

We got to all sing happy birthday to 5 of 8 Sunday night.

He'd been waiting...waiting for 2 of 8 to arrive home from New York.

And as a bonus, Da Boy is also here, visiting again.

We love it when Da Boy is here.

So we gathered and sang and ate yet the third of 5 of 8's celebratory cakes (we had one on the actual day, candle-laden donuts with friends and finally, this version) and I captured a pic with all the crew.

It feels nice to have a full nest again, even if just for a few days.

Because Da Boy leaves again at the end of the week.

And 1 of 8 leaves for the Sorbonne at the end of the month.

But I'm not going to think about that right now.

I'm going all Scarlett O'Hara on the topic.

I realize it might be a bit overwhelming to distinguish all the players. So I've taken the liberty of placing notations on the Octa-players in this beautiful, artistic family portrait...

I love it when my nest is full...
