a weekend with cousins...

Since Brandon's sister and family moved to Austin, we hadn't been able to see or visit with them until this past weekend!

We were able to spend a lot of time together and Brandon's parents and aunt hosted a weekend sleepover with all four grandkids! I think they all had a great time together, despite the rain messing with our pumpkin patch plans...
DeDe wanted all four of the kids to match, so please excuse our homemade t-shirts!

As you can see, I'm not a professional photographer and getting all kids to smile at the same time, didn't exactly all!

As the rain clouds parted, we attempted a trip to the church bazaar to snap some pics of all four kiddos, but as soon as we started POURING!! We weren't too upset, because we've sure needed the rain, but it did mean no pumpkin patch for us :-(

So, we headed back to the house for some silly time with family! We cooked, laughed and had a great time visiting with the girls before they had to leave. I know DeDe, Pop and Aunt Paulette were SO happy to have all of their grandkids together, again! And we were happy to spend a weekend with the girls as well! Even if that meant our son spending both nights away! Ha, he sure had fun eating junk food and being spoiled rotten with the rest of them!!

I think all four kids' diet included ALL of the following:

NO nutritional foods

Oreo's...Halloween and regular!


cake balls

pizza...lots of pizza!

sugar cookies

ice cream

milk...lots of milk!

...and anything else their little hearts desired!

I told the boys this was ok, as long as they understood...

Looks like a great time! Too bad about the rain.
Sorry I've been MIA. Just when I thought I had the blogger thing fixed - I didn't.
