My baby sister turned 18.

Heaven help us.


Lola wasn't so sure about the whole "sharing the attention" thing, so she stole one of Kelly's gifts right out from under her nose.

And because the complimentary apple crisp at California Pizza Kitchen was much too small to satisfy my family, we headed to The Chocolate for some real dessert.

While the rest of us dined on cake, ice cream and fruit tarts, Lola charmed grandpa into handing over a Dum Dum.  Nothing like straight sugar to keep a tired baby upbeat.

When the Dum Dum had been reduced to nothing but a stick, grandma decided to win back the title of "favorite" by shoveling straight cream into Lola's mouth.

We need to get this kid a treadmill.

Happy birthday to our lovely Auntie Kelly.
Thanks for being born.

Too bad I wasnt there to serve you! How'd you get the free dessert? Some of our managers have been sticklers lately!
