While we were there I met Darcy (Karri's baby) and Jenna (Dad & Nola's) for the first time. They are both super cute.
This is Darcy! She's adorable!
Shawnee holding Darcy:
James & Josh:
You will notice lots of pictures of Emmi...She was always ready to pose for a picture for me. She's so cute and I can't believe how big she is now!
This was just adorable. I wish I could have gotten a few better pictures of this, but here is Emmi (loving her picture being taken) kissing Darcy on the cheek. It was too cute!
When we got there, Stirling had a VERY VERY loose tooth but was nervous about losing it. We tried to get him to let us take it out, but he wouldn't let anyone near it. The one morning that Josh and I were watching the kids for Christine and Robby, Stirling is eating his cereal and hits his tooth causing it to just dangle there. After a few words of encouragement from Josh, Stirling finally lets Josh near it to finish taking it out. Here is Stirling with his front tooth missing and a few tears :)
Unfortunately, we didn't get to see much of Nathan and his family :( Nathan is super busy with working mandatory overtime and going to school full time. Plus both Nathan and Nichole were really sick. But here's Matthew, one of the CUTEST boys EVER!
Ok...Hang in there. I'm almost done. I thought about doing this in a few posts, but decided that I just needed to get it done or it may never happen...so one LONG post it is :)
On Monday, January 3 of 2011, Logan came home from serving a 2 year mission for our church in Ogden, Utah! We were sooo excited to see him! He is such a good brother and was an amazing missionary. He's all grown up now and actually mature ;) This was the first time all of the siblings were together in well over 2 years. He came home to some older and some new nieces and nephews and a new half sister! I think he may have been a little overwhelmed at the airport.
Here he is, right off the airplane:
I love this picture, except for the ugly OU banner in the background. I should have cropped it out...Here's Shawnee, Stirling, Logan, Christine and I! We were all so excited to see him especially Sitrling!
Logan and a very happy Mom!:
That night we had Christmas with my mom! Then the next night, Christmas with my dad! It was so nice to finally all be together again. It's great having Logan home! We missed him tremendously and glad to be able to call and text him all we want!
We all got PJs from my mom and Kylie had the cutest ones! Here is a picture of her in them. A little random to put it at the bottom, but too lazy to move it at this point.
We had such a fun time in Oklahoma, seeing all of my family and eating at all the places we love in Stillwater! Oh and it was pretty nice weather too! A nice break from the snow and COLD!
After leaving Oklahoma, we went straight to Idaho for Taylor and Becca's wedding...but that will have to be in another post :) which will hopefully come sooner rather than later...but no promises...
