Gingerbread Houses

So every year my family gets together and makes gingerbread houses out of graham crackers. Here are all of our creations!

haha I didn't really want to do one, so I was right next to Josh and Amelia and their amazing tree house, so I just put "ditto" on top of mine and was done with it...

Bouncy Kaitlynn!

Kaitlynn being cute (as always) in her bouncer!

Puzzle Time!

Here I am doing a puzzle with my sister-in-law Amelia and my sister Rebecca. We all LOVE doing puzzles! Strangely enough Amelia is the only one that got really in it, I just couldn't sit there, which is weird because Roz and I can spend hours doing puzzles...

All the kids took a bath together Thanksgiving night because we all stayed together so that we could spend the weekend together, we were supposed to go to the cabin but we decided not to earlier in the week and decided that Johnny and Jamie would stay at my parents. Aren't they so cute?

4 generations!

Four Generations of women in our family!

Grandma LOVES Kaitlynn!

Girl's Night Out!

The night before Thanksgiving I went out to dinner with my Mom, 2 sisters, and 3 sister-in-laws, it was soooo much fun! We went to Gecko Grill because it is such yummy mexican food and I miss it sooooo much when I'm in Connecticut!
Well we love the green salsa, maybe a little too much! Katie was saying how much she loved it and I dared her to drink the hole little cup of it, Jamie overheard what we were talking about and I told Jamie I would give her 5 dollars if she drank her little cup of green salsa. She kind of laughed at it, said she could drink the whole thing, but you could tell she wasn't really going to. Then when our waiter was at the table he heard our conversation and said that he would give us a free bean dip if she did it, so I put 5 dollars in front of her and he put the bean dip down. Katie was mad that she wasn't getting this same deal, so I emptied my change in front of her, it had to be close to 5 dollars. Then we all watched in awe as they drank their salsa, it looked sooooo gross! Here are some pictures!

Katie and Jamie about to drink up!

Past the teeth, over the gums, look out stomach here it comes!

haha, can you tell they loved it?!
somehow I don't think they'll be drinking that again very soon...

Upside down girl!

It was fun playing around with Kaitlynn, her she is being silly! Haha she is sooo cute! I'm going to miss her!

FHE with my two favorite fams!

Well Roz and the kids came over Monday night to meet my whole crazy family! They didn't know what they were in for! They didn't meet everyone, Josh, Amelia, and Jason weren't there, but they still met 16 people in my immediate family! It was soooooo much fun and it was so great to see how they got along so great together! My neices and nephews loved the kids I nanny and vice versa! Here are some pictures from the night!

Ok Caroline knew that my brother has a goat that he milks and she was DYING to milk it, so lucky her she got to! And so did Connor, Christina, and Roz!

Caroline loved it! She said she wants a goat and that she would milk it every morning and evening! Haha, yeah right!

Here's my neice Gracie petting the goat, she doesn't get to get this close to it too often! I guess she liked it!

So Caroline really wanted to milk the goats, she got to do that, and Connor really wanted to hold Baby Kaitlynn, my sister Rebecca's baby. Here he is, he loved her soooo much!

Here's a future babysitter! Caroline loved Kaitlynn!

Ok these three girls were sooooo cute together! Emma and Grace loved Caroline and she adored them, Caroline was the perfect babysitter with Gracie!

Caroline had to get a picture with Lacy too, Lacy didn't really want to be in this picture!
It was so great seeing the two families I love so much getting along so well. Everyone loved Roz and the kids and wished they lived closer by. It was fun to see Roz and the kids clearly having fun with my family, I only wish it could happen again!

I love my family!

Well I'm home with my family! Yay! I love them soooo much! Today we all got together (except Josh, Amelia, and Jason) and it was so fun to see everyone after so long! Here are some pictures of the neices and nephews!
So Kaitlynn was brand new to almost everyone! My mom, dad, Katie and I are the only ones who had actually met her before this trip. So the grandkids just flocked to her! Here I am changing her diaper with 5 little heads watching me!

haha, Gracie she's not a puppy, you don't pet babies!

Emma's going to be such a good babysitter someday, she loved holding her cousin Kaitlynn
