All in a Family

First off, I'd like to thank everyone for there kind emails and comments about Hillard, you guys are the best. And he was a virtual chatterbox last night! We only understood about half the things he siad (through sign language and speech) but we still had fun playing together as a family.

You guys may remember my birthday is coming up soon. Its not something I really like to broadcast b/c I hate that awkward feeling of people thinking they have to get me something.
Its going to be a really tough birthday since Carmen won't be around to celebrate with me. This is the second birthday in 34yrs that we won't be together and I'm thinking it will be just as hard as the first. (I had moved to Northern California 2 weeks before our birthday in 2000)....
To make this year a little less painful and hopefully tearless Chris is making a big to-do by having My favorite kind of party....A Crawfish Boil....!
The best part of this was the invitation email he sent to the family.... It was PURE CHRIS!

Hello All!

As I am sure you are all aware, on Sunday, February 3rd there is a big event worthy of an even bigger celebration. That is the day before Catherine Peddy Kerth and Carmen Peddy Rinehart gracefully pass into their "mid-thirties". Since they'll probably be crawled up in the fetal position on Monday, Feb 4, as they realize how old they've become, I figure it's best to celebrate their special day one day early. ; )

For this momentous occasion, I would like to invite all of you to a crawfish boil at "blank". All of the details should be included on the attached invitation. Obviously, Carmen, Richard, Thomas and Patrick will not be able to attend, but we'll all eat a crawfish in your honor.

When upon receiving this invite almost every member in the family was in hysteria with laughter. I think I even heard Carm Laughing all the way from Rio, Brasil ;)

I Leave you with this:

I'd like everyone to prepare for "Brandon's Creations". Yes, apparently the dyeing bug has bitten my youngest and he can't get enough of it!

Is this the same as a 'low country' boil? A friend of mine in Louisiana always talks about that, and if itis, I'm quite jealous !

PS - Glad you're back :)
