My sisters and parents are gone. I am sad. Boo hoo.
Luke cried today. Over and over again when he would remember. He kept telling me how sad he was. Because everyone was gone and our house is quiet. Boo for quiet.
I worked out and ate a bunch of ice cream to ease my pain. Take that for a contradiction.
Will post pictures soon so Brandon can see them. But really don't feel like doing much but having a big sulk-fest.
Being around family makes you realize how much you are missing.
I hadn't seen my nephew since he was a teeny baby and now he was talking tons. He can say symbiotic. He turned two while he was here. What the heck does that even mean?
Seriously my nieces and nephews are so smart, we might have to play catch up over here. Like read some more books. Maybe its because my sisters don't have cable. Maybe thats it.
The kids got along so well. All nine of them.
No injuries. Wahoo.
We had so much fun.
Brandon, we missed you.
The fastest a week has ever gone by.
I don't think anyone got much sleep.
Played the game Farkle every nite. The game is just fun to say. Lindsey always won.
My kids were sad to go back to their own beds instead of slumber parties on the floor.
Why is crowded floor sleeping so much fun?
The beach was perfect.
Funny to hear Baylie say Carl today when he was gone. She missed playing with her uncle.
We miss our cousins and I miss my sisters.
No, I really miss my sisters.
And my parents.
Did I mention I have awesome new gates now?
Quite impressed with my Jason. They did great work.
And screen doors. With a new swing. The third on the big tree.
I don't even know what to do with myself.
Back to work.
I guess its a good thing when the people who are so amazing and neat are people you are related to. I'm choosing not be jealous and feel jilted in the talents department. Because they are really neat. And really great moms.
But as the oldest, aren't I supposed to be the wisest or something like that? Cause I want to do is steal all of their ideas and look like them.
The girls know how to wear some jewelry. And wear some clothes. Everything cool I do comes from them.
Paper products saved our life. Should be required and allowed during large family functions. I recycle and don't waste every other time of the year I swear. We didn't cook either unless you count caramel popcorn.
We ate pizza, In and Out, and had beef kabobs and hummus. My dad was not a fan of the hummus. Must have no taste buds.
We had ages of kids 7 months, 1, 2, three 3s, 4, 5, and 7.
We haven't gotten together here for three years. That is a long time.
Don't know when it will happen again. Everyone lives so far away.
But Courtney soon will only be ten hours away...only ten.
Keeping ourselves distracted so we don't cry.
Paisley keeping me company and turning into my late nite/middle of the nite buddy.
Little stink. Good thing she is so cute. Good thing babies are so special to have around.
Good thing Diet Coke was invented.
Makes it okay not to get much sleep.
