Big 12

This guy.

He went and turned twelve. Just like that. Didn't ask my permission. Didn't give me a warning.

Somehow went from two years old to twelve while I went to warm up my coffee.

Just had to throw in that above pic. He's just so photogenic. Except up there.

When they were toddlers, everyone thought 5 of 8 and 6 of 8 were twins.

They actually do look more twin-like than my actual twins. Who do not look twin-like at all.

A-hem.  More photogenic, perfectly posed children....

5 of 8 wanted his mama's fried chicken for dinner, so I obliged.  Several chickens were harmed in the making of the birthday dinner.  I just want to be honest about that...

As I've written before about big family birthday parties, we do tend to keep things pretty simple. A big meal, some cake and ice cream overindulgence, a couple of presents...

And a lot of love.

Happy birthday 5 of 8.
