It was so nice to get to see family in North Carolina! When we arrived on Wednesday it was 75 degrees! Quite different than Ohio!
The above pic is a shot of all the cousins! They had a great time with each other. Even though they only see each other about once a year, they pick up where they left off and get along great!
To say my boys had a good time would be an understatement! Their Aunt Marybeth and Uncle Kit spoil them rotten. They live just down the street from Grandma so we can walk over. They spent the night on Wednesday playing video games and watching movies until the wee hours of the morning. Then on Thanksgiving night, they invited Zachary, Connor, Patrick and Nathan to sleep over. Yep, another late night. Alexandra and Kaitlyn spent the night at Grandma's with me and Eddie. Those girls are too cute. Alexandra was fascinated with Uncle Eddie's tattoos. She asked him a million questions. (Tom, I think one is in your future!) They really got a kick out of Eddie. He is what you might call the "crazy uncle". Always trying to make them laugh. At one point, Alexandra looked at me and said, "I'm so glad you married him." Me too!
On Friday, we all went to see Fred Claus. It was too funny and the kids loved it! Who can resist Vince Vaughan? On Friday night we went to Tommy and Kitty's house for some ham and leftovers. I got this great shot of Eddie and his mom too.
We are going to decorate the house for Christmas today. The kids can't wait. Also, Eddie's sister Marybeth is going to have surgery tomorrow. Please say a prayer that all will go well and she will be feeling like her old self soon.
