2 out of 3 of the beloved cousins came for a party weekend. Hunter didn't come, he went fishing with his other Grandpa. The kids had so much fun. Alicia (my sister-in-law) and I enjoyed each others company and the break....the kids played and left us alone. We had fun looking at magazines, stitching and making plans for crafts in the future. The whole time we had all the hurricane coverage on. Steve called from Kuwait while she was here. He isn't getting much time for information on the outside world from where he is at, so I had to update him on all the political and weather info. For a guy who measures wind and rain for a living he is really missing out on all these hurricanes. I am going to bed so early tonight...last night we stayed up until 0430 in the much fun.

When it got a little stormy outside they came in to play hide and seek...there is Madi counting.

They set up the BIG Dora tent in Madi's room to sleep in. FUN!

Such cute kids!

We had some yummy food too. Pizza and Greek salad for dinner, and brownie sundaes with homemade brownies and homemade hot fudge for dessert. I couldn't wait, I started putting out my fall stuff yesterday. Since Alicia was here I wanted her opinion and help with it too.

It sounds like you had a wonderful time with your family! :) And, oh does that dinner and dessert sound SO good right now! (I'm baking oatmeal chocolate chip cookies right now; care to trade? :)

As for fall decorations, why wait? Especially since you had your sister-in-law there. It probably made it so much more fun that way! Happy Decorating and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
