Well our weekend was wonderful. It was crazy, insane, and loud, but so much fun! My parents now have eight grandkids, so you can imagine how crazy it gets with just that. Then you throw in another “kid”, Jessi, and eleven adults it makes for a housefull of fun!
Rory’s birthday party was fun and disorganized (ha!) and I will blog about that soon.
Today I want to tell you about all the fun the cousins have when they are together.
Unfortunately, I didn’t take as many pictures as I normally do but I have a few! Rory was completely in love with every single one of her older cousins. I mean every.single.one.
And she sorta loved her little cousin, Clayton, too but got very possessive of the toys he was playing with because “no! those are Ryyydur’s toys!”, of course. Bless her heart, she’s very protective of her sister. She did thoroughly enjoy taking a bath with Clayton though (because he let her dump water on his head).
Jacks, Landon, and Riley of course did their own thing most of the time which included lots of playing outside and also included sawing through a rock (for real). Jacy and Cade played basketball with the older kids (me, Papa, Josh and Patrick) and OH MY WORD it was the worst game of horse and around the world EVER. No one made any shots and it was ridiculous.
Clayton and Ryder stared at eachother a lot but barely made contact unless we made them. Soon they will be giving us a run for our money! (Can you believe they are just 2 months apart?!)
All weekend long we were cracking up at Clayton. He does this signature move that only one other person in our family has ever done and we got SO TICKLED all weekend at it. This picture doesn’t really do it justice but here is the signature lounge…
Aunt Nita, doesn’t he look SO MUCH like Patrick doing that?! I hope this makes your day. We miss Patrick so much and I can’t believe its been 12 years since I have hugged his neck. I miss him all the time.
Alright, tomorrow is the big day! I’m flying to OH to be with Andy for FIVE days of R&R!
Hallelujah and amen.
