Double Birthdays


We are loaded with family celebrations in the Fall. Two granddaughters have the same birthday two years apart. 

With my daughters--my cherished friends and beautiful mothers to my five grandchildren.

Teppanyaki rules!

Aww, a heart-shaped pile of rice. Can't get much sweeter than that.

Except fire. Food on fire is exciting. 

The guys at the other end of the table look positively captivated.

The birthday song with taiko drums.  A blend of East and West.  

The birthday girls take it all in. 

Applause. 

Presents. 

A long-desired ukulele from Hawaii. Yeah. 

Mama and birthday girls. Mama's birthday is on its way, too.

All the single ladies plus two. 

The extreme guitar pose. No shame.  Straight ham.  
I love these ladies.

What a good time had by all. Love the pictures of your precious girls. We have shared many a birthday at the hibachi table. So much fun. Love it that you have so many birthdays this time of year. Nothing but happiness with that. xoxo Sharon
