This last week all of my aunts flew into town for a surgery my grandma had. My grandma has 7 daughters, four of which live out of state, so it was a family reunion of sorts to have them all here at one time. One night we all got together at my mom's house to play games together and just plain laugh...

This picture was taken 3 days before Christmas this year at my dear friend Cara's house. We were having a "Happy Birthday, Jesus!" party for all (and I mean all) of the kids. Olivia is shown here with her two best boy buds, Bryce and Noah. We also had the pleasure of spending this time with Zeke, Selah, Ella, and Halle, Aunt Kelley, Uncle B, Uncle Jarrod, and Aunt Cara. We read a book about the first Christmas, ate pizza, opened presents, and then sang happy birthday to Jesus and ate delicious cake made by the afore mentioned, Aunt Cara. We also made a personalized tree ornament with each child's handprint on a ball, but we now only have one because Liv's didn't make it out alive. Of course. All in all, we had lots of fun with our friends.

Let me show you....This is my brother Brian. He is only 15 months younger than me and I did not change his diapers. I did play Luke Skywalker and Princess Leah with him in the backyard and I did pass notes between our bedrooms when we were supposed to be taking naps. He is the father to my super cute niece, Avery (see previous blog postings), and his wife is Rachel, my friend. Brian is lots of fun and has a very big heart, but mostly he can take all your money at poker like no one else.
