Fun Company

Just before Christmas, our good friends, JJ and Christy, and their 4 girls came to stay with us for a couple days. The kids all piled in one room, and stayed up until the wee hours. They also set their alarm for 5am so they could get up and "talk"- I didn't know that talking was so cool at this age! I guess they couldn't get enough of each other.
I only have 4 barstools, but everyone wanted to eat breakfast together, so they just squished in!

When I went jogging early in the morning , I asked Russ to listen for the little ones. When I got back, this is how I found them- the 7 of them all squished together again. 

And this is how I found Russ.

By the end of the visit, our kids weren't so inseparable anymore. I would describe my kids as highly sleep-deprived! It's a good thing they had so much fun before they lost it.

My Favorite Christmas Picture

On Christmas Eve, we let the kids pick one gift to open before they went to bed. I was very happy they chose to open gifts from each other!
