Nate's older brother sent his kids down for the week to stay with Pat and Norma. My girlies were very exited to see Emma whom they haven't seen since Thanksgiving -- that is, after I convinced them that it wasn't Elli and Xandi coming from Paris. They have an obsession with Elli and Xandi even though they have yet to meet Xandi and have meet Elli only once, I think. Mail and pictures are our way of knowing them.
Back to Emma and Ethan -- my girls LOVE their older cousins -- Emma, Andersyn, and Madalyn. So this was a real treat. Poor Pat and Norma, though, their house was bursting at the seams with excited, yelling, hyper cousins. We finally rounded them up for a group picture:
The girls each got a necklace with their name in beads and some jewels which Ethan claimed were stolen by Emma from his pirate stash. . . She made baby Paige a blanket. That girl is a blur of pink! I'm so glad Jill finally has her girl after three boys! Paige should always be surrounded by pink!!!
