When part of your family is in town once every couple of years you have to take a family photo. If you have never taken a family picture with 19 people you should try it. Oh, and make sure 9 of them are 10 and under. Thank goodness for talented photographers in the family who know how to make head swaps. But honestly, is this not a Christmas miracle?!? Sweet picture, huh??
The evening we did these my boys were patient and allowed Liz to snap a few, but dessert was waiting so we had to go. The next night we went to Dan and Tami's for dinner and he snapped a few of the boys for just me.
Could you not just eat him up?!? He will be 5 in October and I can't talk about it.
I mentioned earlier that the boys went to Mimi and Tee's. The reason they went was so Fred and I could go on our annual staff retreat. We had the best time. We planned the upcoming year, ate at a few good restaurants and even had a sunset boat ride. It was beyond fabulous. Here are a few pictures from our boat ride.
This is our last week before school starts back. I'm in mourning. We have saved a trip to the water /amusement park for the last weekend. I've checked the forecast and things are not looking too good, but we're going to make it work! We'll squeeze one last drop out of summer before the grit and grind of school begins.
Clayton's ever budding vocabulary quote of the week, "Jack, your flatulence is not appreciated in the car." Yes, I had to google how to spell flatulence. Yes, Jack just grinned and continued with his flatulence...in the car. Mom.of.boys.
