Happy Birthday Lucy!

Today was my sister in law's birthday-- Melissa. But we call her Lucy. For my blog friends that don't follow-- Lucy is IV's mommy and is married to my brother. Poor girl!

We had Lucy's birthday party on Sunday and did a combined Birthday and Superbowl party. Her BFF Karen made her a football birthday cake, Mom made her a Key Lime cake--and we had tons of food for the evening. Ironically, the guys ate and fell asleep and it was just us girls watching the Superbowl. Which is fine because their whining and yapping is really distracting (haha)

Spencer and I gave Lucy makeup for her birthday. She is 32 and has never owned make up. On the cruise, I did her make up every night and she loved it; so now, she has her own. I even splurged and bought her MAC.

I have been asked in three separate emails in the past week about IV. IV is my nephew. They live 1/2 mile from us and I do not have custody of him, he is just always with us. He and Spencer think they are brothers instead of cousins. They are 15 months apart. We call him IV (rhymes with give) because he is the 4th-- the roman numeral IV. My brother is the third, my dad is a jr... you get it. Yes his hair is cotton white and yes he is TOTALLY LOUD and goofy. He and Spencer are opposites personality wise-- Jimmy and Lucy are going to have their hands full with him!

I no longer wonder, but I was curious. Thanks.

I've been calling him Four so I guess I got it half right. LOL IV is a cute nickname. Thanks for clearing that up!

Well, disregard the comment I just made about IV. LOL. That is hilarious! At least I'm not the only one that was wondering. Isn't it great that they are so close? I have two brothers. We live out in the country and a brother lives on each side of us. I have a niece that is 2 1/2 months younger than Riley, and a nephew that is 19 months younger than Riley. A new "crop" of kids is coming in too. I have a 6-month-old nephew and another niece due in about a month. I'm so thankful that Riley has them so close because he doesn't have any siblings. I have one child, but sometimes I feel like I have triplets!

This is great! I just did a post about what to call guys who are fourth in a family name, and someone pointed me here!
