Cousins

Probably one of my most favorite parts about visiting Texas is the cousin time. I love watching the kids interact. No matter how much time has passed, they always pick up right where they left off...and this time was no exception.

*Learning all Luke's new "catch phrases", which they proudly now repeat over and over in their daily conversations - things like "knuckle head", "booty", "nunu head", "word up", "whatever", and the ever popular "chicken nugget head".
*Repeating one of Payton's cutest phrases "I do-ed (pronounced dude) it!"
*They loved telling Chris all kinds of cousin stories and laughed out loud as they told some of them.
*Jacob and Marcus had lots of fun babysitting Luke and Mia while Jill and I went to see a movie (27 Dresses ....we loved it! If you've ever been a bridesmaid and had to wear a not so appealing dress, you need to see this movie!)
*Ice skating (enough said!)
*Shopping at IKEA
*Cousin sleep overs
*Going to see the Christmas lights at BLORA
*Playing with and feeding Mia
*Just being able to spend time with each other!


Here are just a few of my favorite cousin photos from our visit....

All the cousins (not an easy task to get them all cooperating and looking at the camera...but I did it!)...

Marcus and Jacob playing with Jenna and Luke's leapsters...


Luke and Jenna teaching Marcus the rules of Leapster....
Love these photos of Carsyn and Mia...especially the second one ....


Ready for the hot tub....

As I went through my photos I noticed how many I had of Jenna and Carsyn. They have so much fun together...and it really, really makes me wish we lived closer. I just can't talk Chris into it though. :)


And my favorite....
