Cousins galore… small style

Yesterday Lily was reunited with her cousins Sofia, Sebastiao, Luis and Kiko at my tia Tete’s house.

These are of course her second cousins or shall I say first cousins once removed? I always get confused how that goes.

Anyway, Sofia and Sebastiao are my first cousin Lena’s kids.

Luis and Kiko are my aunt’s kids.

We also met Constanca and Salvador (not pictured) for the first time who are my cousin Ze Maria’s kids. (I had not seen Ze Maria since I was a little girl…)

There were some other cousins missing and we wished they had been there but, the ones who were there get along great!

Linking up to Morgan for Small Style.

Lily’s 1st birthday

For Lily’s birthday yesterday, we had a small family birthday party for her at tia Tete’s house.

As always there was lots of food and tons of sweets.

Lily walked more than ever yesterday.

She was all over the yard and the house all by herself.

We sang happy birthday to her both in Portuguese and in English.

She was all about the cake, the blowing of the candle, the opening of all the wonderful presents that she received and wearing the beautiful dress that uncle Michael gave her a while back.

It was a wonderful day.

I can’t believe she is 1. She is officially a toddler…

I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Picture overload again. 😉

Avo Carmo’s birthday

It was my mom’s birthday yesterday.

Tia Tete organized a big lunch at her house with the whole family. (only tio Ricky and Anabela were missing 🙁 )

The lunch started at 12:30pm and when we left it was 9pm. LOL

It was an ALL day event.

Everyone had a wonderful time just spending time together enjoying the present and reminiscing about the old times.

There were also exciting news… prima Ana is pregnant! 🙂 We are all soooooooooo happy for her and Nuno.

P.S- if these ALL day eating events continue, I will need some fat pants because I sure won’t fit in my skinny ones.
