The week between Christmas and New Year's was so much fun. All of my cousins stayed in town and we got to hang out quite a bit. It was so nice catching up with everyone and seeing all the kids (there are 11 kids 5 and under, so it was busy, busy, busy!). Even though it's crazy and hectic, I just love our big family! Below is a (very random :) collection of photos from the week.
Here's Charlie all dressed up for a trip out to our ranch...
Things got a bit crazy once we got out there...I don't know if poor Jules ever got all those leaves off her jacket. :)
Katie also dressed up for the trip.
Charlie entertained Papa by trying on his hat.
Jackson, Julia, and Katie came over to play quite a bit. Charlie loved the army gear and guns they brought with them. Here's Charlie desperately trying to get Julia's gun.
But when that failed, he settled for her helmet. :)
Aunt Meggie was a wonderful playmate all during the vacation.
As was Papa (Charlie is trying to climb over the couch to Papa here).
Elec and Charlie got some one-on-one time as well, which was fun. Charlie loved Elec, although it seems as though he is equally enamored with the toy in his mouth.
Still gnawing on the toy...
Even a kiss on the head can't distract him...
Finally, it's out of the mouth!
What a fun week!
