Hi!

I can't believe it's been almost a week since I posted something. I thought I would share a few pictures of what we've been up to here.

Of course, we are really enjoying having Andy around. This picture gives an idea of his goofy side. I had bought these giant stockings at the dollar store and told the kids they needed to fill them for Bob and I. Andy found them, and filled them with himself!
~~~

We spent an evening at Bob's sisters home. These little guys thought they wanted a bite of what we were having.
~~~

While at their house, we tried out their Wii fit. We all laughed at and with each other as we played.
~~~

Oliver got this cube for Christmas, and he's really enjoying it!
~~~


On Christmas Day, we had my whole family over for the day.
~~~


These two are my sister Terri and Cheri's daughters. They can't wait to open the presents!
~~~

On Saturday, we had Bob's family party. It was a room full of people - 26 to be exact!
~~~

This is the youngest of Bob's family, his nephews son. Isn't he a cutie?

I'll have a few more pictures to show you later, but thought this was enough for now!

Mari,

Oh my it truly looks like you've been having so much fun! It's times like these we have to stop and enjoy, we can always blog about them later, but enjoy the moments and the memories you are creating.
