Weekend Update.

This weekend was just lovely. Almost perfect.

Heather and Jody and their lovely clan came up to join us and we packed a whole lot of fun into our 3 day visit! The second they walk in the cousins start up right where they left off. It's so much fun to watch, and reminds me of the time we spent with our cousins growing up. They are so lucky to have such fun together, and it's amazing how much they all love each other. It's really beautiful to watch.

Brielle has a small "crush" on Travis and spent most of the weekend snuggled up to him like this. It's darling, and isn't she about the cutest things you've ever seen? For Christmas Heather, my mom, and I gifted our men with tickets to Saturday night's Aggie game, so my amazing niece Breje' babysat all the kiddos while we went to Hamilton's to eat (yum), and to the game, all worry free because Breje' is very capable, and the kids had so much fun with her. The only thing missing was Amy. :(Each year my mom makes sure the kids get to decorate Valentine cookies at her house, and it's quite a sugary sight to see. Adyson actually got quite good this time and didn't go too overboard with the frosting, Sienna though, well, she's got a ways to go before she learns the "less is more" rule.



Sunday everyone gathered at our house for the big game. It was one of the funnest Superbowl game days we've had. The kids ran around tearing the house apart and eating way too much sugar, the men folk watched the game intently, and us ladies made some fun flower clips and pins and crafted the day away. (I know, I'm not usually so crafty, but it ended up being so much fun! During half time we busted out our new "just dance" wii game. Here's a nice shot of Trav and Jody dancing to M.C. Hammer....awesome.
And even though I am embarrassing myself here, heather has posted a nice clip of my dad kicking my butt dancing over on her blog. The embarrassment is worth it, just so you can see my dad and his smooth movies.
I haven't laughed that hard in a while!And here's just a few of our fun creations.
I just can't tell you how much I adore my family. It seems that when we all get together hilarity ensues, and love abounds.
Can I please have another weekend just like this one? Soon?
