it was my sister tara's birthday this last wednesday.
and because birthday's are a big deal,
{especially this birthday} i went up to help her celebrate!
and despite the {freakish} winter snow storm.
despite the rain, the sleet, the mud, and even a couple black outs.
yes, even despite her nasty cold.
despite all of mother nature conspiring against us,
we had a truly wonderful and funny time.
because in our family you simply cannot gather without lots & lots of laughing.
