Sunday afternoon my brother Sam and his family stopped by. They are moving to Denver and we were lucky enough to have them spend a day at our house on their way through. The kids had a ton of fun playing. They played on everything we have here to play on! He has five kids ages 9 to almost one so they got along great with my six kids. Four of his kids are boys so Maddi and my boys loved that! Makenna was in heaven because his daughter loves the same kind of girly things that she loves - hair, make up, singing and dancing. Olivia followed them around part of the time and then spent the other part playing dolls with their 3 year old boy.
Sam gave me and Maddi a few quick guitar lessons - Thank you Sam, and the girls had a great time singing all the Taylor Swift songs while he played.
I enjoyed visiting with Janiel (and Sam too). We were sad to see them go so soon but we're glad they will liv a little closer to us now. Before they left Monday afternoon we all went to Culvers for lunch. All the kids except the baby sat in one booth. They had a great time and we got several looks and comments about the high number of kids we brought in there! Then we gave hugs and off they went. I'm sure there will be plans in the not too far off future for another get together!
