Cousins

We almost always have at least one cousin “sleepover” if not multiple when we are in town. This trip we were only there two days and with the craziness of Christmas we (meaning Melissa and I) didn’t think it was the best idea. I was hoping to get a new cousin picture now that the…

Cousin Snuggles

Cousins snuggles are the best. Mackenzie loves dolls and was so excited to hold baby Ben. (He seemed to enjoy the attention.)

Comparisons

People always ask who Ben looks like and I never have a good answer. I rarely see adults in babies and it has to be a really strong resemblance for me to see it in kids and their parents. Judy got out Wade’s baby pictures and it was amazing how much Ben looked like Wade.

Christmas in Memphis

Today was a little bit of a whirlwind. Emily had to leave town right after lunch so we had a yummy breakfast and then got down to the present opening. The kids had a blast and it was great to spend the time with family.

Holiday Party

Another class party is in the books. I am the only official room mom for Teague’s class (but I do have a mother who comes to help the day of the parties). I planned the activities/games/crafts and everything went smoothly – thank goodness! We made snowflake ornaments, had a snowball race, and decorated each other…
