party at the parents'

I'm visiting with my family for a few days. We've had such a great time together, it's hard to believe that I only arrived yesterday afternoon!

Just a few shots from our day so far...

My double-jointed boy. Doesn't it look like he has a broken arm?!


Coco and her Canon are here.

I love her in spite of her treacherous Canon. (You must overlook some things for the sake of the sisterhood.)



I gave my niece Emily-bemily-boo some new hair clips. She liked all of them.

At the SAME TIME.


Poor Lulu has much dorkiness to adjust to. She's handling it as well as can be expected.


My baby sister and her husband are here too.


I like them together. They belong together. They understand each other. Scary and amusing at the same time. :)

And then there's moi. Fitting right in with my bad self.

(If you know me in real life, you would see how this is SO not me. I hope.)


It's a full house for the moment and the noise, sounds, laughter, and even a constant sink full of dirty dishes make me VERY happy.

Vacation, staycation, stuck in school, stuck in traffic... What's going on with y'all?

I won't start a Nikon vs Canon debate here. I don't want to lost a bunch of Nikon friends. :P I'm glad we get to spend time together. I love you!!!

Just finished spring break with my three girls home. They spent lots of time with grandma and grandpa. I am so sad they have to go back to school today. Hanging with family just keeps getting better and better.

I love Emily's clips, blue eyes, and red hair! :)

Yikes! (re: Austin's arm. -- That is Austin, right?)

Awww both of the girls are adorable...but your son's arm...that looks PAINFUL!

I'm glad you're having a wonderful visit with your family. (Makes me wish I lived closer to mine.)

Blessings,
Michelle

Sounds wonderful :)

Fun Fun Fun! That baby is a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e. Canon. Did you get a haircut? You hair is so cute. Christine, so what, you are still creaming me at scrabble. You get all the best tiles! We are home. No vacation. Just school for us and work for hubby.

Your family always looks like so much fun!

Ruth said...

Speaking as someone who's double jointed, that's an awesome arm trick! I just have cool hand tricks. I've been lurking for awhile so I decided to delurk. We're just staying home chilling today. We'll most likely go back to doing some school tomorrow.

Glad to hear you're having a great time with family - we're just in regular potty-training-homeschooling-avoid-the-slush-outside mode. (we're in the middle of moving to TX and on cool spring days like this - it couldn't happen soon enough!!) :)

Emily said...

BOOOOO Melissa and Christine. ;)

Nikon girls unite.

Anyway, enough bashing of my beautiful Canon shooters...I had to comment on that last picture of you. You look like a cross between annoyed and amused. MAde me smile.

RaD said...

Just staying home for now because ball season has just begun!

And your boys arm is kinda creepy in a cool sort of way!

Robyn said...

Love the outfit on LuLu --- it's an owl! Okay, loved seeing all your fun family shots, too. But look how much she's grown!

Looks like y'all are having a grand time. Makes me wish I had planned a get away trip during this spring break, but after unpacking due to our recent move back to the GREAT State of Texas...I'm tired! I am a canon girl myself and I love Christine's strap too. Ciao Bella...
