We were so blest to join the Cooke family yesterday as they celebrated the birthdays of two very special little people.
It was a wonderful brunch and party, complete with a scrumptious breakfast spread,
an "Elmo" pinata,
and a doughnut cake!
Lots and lots of presents too.
The best thing about the whole morning was experiencing the love that is so evident, among family and friends, in this clan. The friends that were there, many of whom have been part of the family since grade school, the family connections, the welcome to those of us who traveled a ways, it's not something you find just anywhere.
Molly and Ben were loved and celebrated. In this life, being surrounded by people that treasure you is a true blessing.
