It was perhaps the most low key celebration in all the history of low key family celebrations. We'll do more next year. It was also the last celebration in this house. (Sniff.) Here are some pictures from the evening. (You'll notice the higher quality. M. had the camera and took some pretty good pictures.

This little series was too fun not to share the whole set. I only had one '2' candle, so they were making due with on to make the age 22.
