The family.

We are so blessed to live close to the majority of our extended family.  Our children have grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and even a great grandma that they get to spend time with on a regular basis.  We do birthdays, backyard barbeques, Friday lunches, and lots of "just because" dinners.  The big boys love to sleep over at Grandma and Papa's house, and I'm pretty sure Gracie will love it one day too.

James is so addicted to Grandma that he cries if he doesn't get to see her when he asks - which is often.  Yesterday, the highlight of his day was when Grandma showed up at soccer practice with hugs and strawberry limeades!  :) 

I love, love, love that our children are growing up with so much extended family.  Grace will have her birthday party on Sunday, and our house will be packed to the gills with just the family.  The big boys think their Uncle Matt is THE coolest guy on the planet, aside from daddy.  Grace isn't so sure about Matt yet, but she thinks Papa hung the moon.  I tell my mom that she is "the other woman" in our boys lives, and I hope that is always true.  I can't wait to see great big gangly grandsons lovin' on their grandma!!!

Here we are, in all our glory.  The Family. 

Yes.  Those are moustaches.  It's probably better if you don't ask.

****We are missing Ethan's dad and his brother Calvin - but they already have mustaches, so you aren't missing too much!!
