Merry Christmas

We had a great Christmas this year. It is becoming more and more fun because Ayden is getting into the Santa thing. He was so excited when he realized Santa had eaten the cookies and milk but then he wanted to know why he ate all the cookies and why he wasn't still there. It was fun watching him get excited about all the presents. Mya had fun as welll. She pretty much went from one thing to the next. She especially liked the bows.

After unwrapping presents we packed up and flew to Texas. We arrived safely- all 10 of us. Today 3 more cousins will be arriving. We are looking forward to all the funfilled chaos that is sure to unfold in the next few days. We are certainly enjoying the 80 degree weather. I will be sure and post pictures when I get back!

A Surprise for Grandma

We made a trip home to IIlinois for my Mom's surgery. She was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. We went home to be with her during this time. On the day of her surgery the kids came down wearing their "pink" for Grandma. She was surprised and liked their shirts alot!
