In Case You Haven't Met Them:

This past weekend my family got together to watch and celebrate my cousin stella's baptism. She was SooOOOoooOOOoo cute!

While I was going over the pictures I realized they really sum up a lot about my family. So, if you've never met them heres what you need to know:

1.We absolutely LOVE one another! No matter what. Period.

2. We LOVE to celebrate! And it seems we believe the more the merrier!

3. We try not to take ourselves too serious!

{Yes, she has her face in a cake that says 'God bless Stella'... but hey it was her cake!}

4. We dont mess around when it comes to food. We love to eat and we eat well. EVERYONE in our family cooks and this weekend you could find 3 generations happily working side by side in the kitchen!

5. We love to dance! Everyone from great grandmas to the toddlers dance and we aren't shy! We will dance till the music stops playing and we love everything from mariachis to disco to Mr. C's 'cha cha slide'!

Kate,
Thanks for taking the best pictures! It was a fantastic time with everyone. I'm so glad we made the trip together. While I looked at the pictures you could really "feel the love". I love you. Mom
