Happy Birthday, Elizabeth!
Caroline Joyce and Mary Elizabeth with their great-grandmothers (my maternal grandmother, Joyce B Jenkins, and John's maternal grandmother, Irene Elizabeth Bindel)

Elizabeth blew the candles out twice. She blew them out right away, before we could finish singing. So I relit them as we sang and she blew them out again.
I think we had twenty-two relatives here -- cousins (first, second, and third), aunts and uncles, grandparents, great-grandmothers, great-aunts and great-uncle for home-smoked brisket and fixins -- and cake and ice cream. It was a good day!
