Some pictures of the attendees:
Rachel holds a package with a message she transcribed from her four year old daughter.:
"Dear MarKathy, I hope you love your babies. We're making a present just for you. -Raelle"
Lindsey's mom, April, told her she could touch my belly as long as she was very gentle.
Lindsey's dad and local politico, Bryan, with his son Brady.
Rivven as the youngest person ever to wear a Richard Simmons costume. (Halloween was the day before.)
I like to think she was inspired by my Halloween costume from last year. (Mark was the woman who claimed that someone carved a B into her cheek (for Barack) after seeing her McCain bumper sticker, a.k.a. the world's most last minute costume.)
Heidi's dog, Strider, is clearly thrilled to be here.
Strider's not sure what to make of Mark's lumbering zombie walk.
I read a card from my mother-in-law while Mark opens the gift.
And now, a photo essay on Elliott's mouth:
Uh-oh. Tim holds his son, Elliott whose mouth looks like it could be full of something...
Phew. I guess it was a false alarm.
