My oldest sister Melissa, my mom, Lucy, April (Angie’s best friend since childhood) and I had a ‘Welcome Home’ celebration for my new nephew Dane and my sister Angie.
We had to plan it secretly because Angie hates a surprise. But even more than hating a surprise, she hates people doing things for her.
So we decided to do both!
We did tell her about the party a few days prior, just to avoid the scene that would have taken place if she had shown up, uninformed. Turned out she really enjoyed herself and so did Dane!
Everyone enjoyed the food, cake and festivities. And it was a great reminder of how precious and loved Dane is.
And isn’t he the cutest thing? I know, I’m wondering, can first cousins still not marry, even if they are not related by blood? Just kidding. Well, not really.
We all just feel so blessed to be able to witness the evolution of their family through the addition of this sweet boy.
What a work He did bringing this boy into our family 🙂
