i originally didn't think that i would be finding out what the CrazyJoy word was until last night because we went to visit my parents at their lake house and there is no Internet access and we can't connect to anyone else's, especially not oldfarts. (yes that is someone's user name for their internet.)
however my sister and her fiance came this weekend and they have fancy smart phones so alas i was able to see the CrazyJoy word: Celebrate.
my mom made this awesome cake for my sister (who usually gets a cookie cake fromThe Great America Cookie Company, but again we were at the lake, so she made this pretty thing.) and we went ahead and celebrated all the summer birthdays.
let me give some background. my family: dad, mom, me and sister
birthdays: dad-summer, mom-summer, me-winter, sister-summer
along comes my husband-summer, we have baby number one-summer, then baby number two-summer, my sister is now engaged, her finance-winter (finally i get someone to share the winter with me) not only are they all in the summer, they are all in June and July. So we celebrated six of the eight in our family. it was fun, it was loud, it was wet (we were at a lake and it rained on us when we were out in the boat), it was sweet (the cake of course), it was happy.
