Weekly Weekend Update

This weekend I got to spend my time relaxing with my favorite peeps in the world. My family.

Well I say relaxing. I come from a family of girls + a dad. In a solid 24 hours there is a lot of drama/screaming/laughing/eating/and just plain fun to be had.

Now take that same scenario and put 6 people + a 5 month baby trying to get ready for family pictures, well that just equals pure chaos.

Luke and I ventured back to my hometown on Friday to stay with my family and then take our annual family picture for our Christmas card. We are super excited because we have added two new boys to the mix: Luke and Maxton. We all dressed in black and red and spent some time walking around the park hopefully getting some good shots. Only time will tell!

Here are some pics from our fun weekend:

Of Course we kicked off Friday night with my personal favorite Chicken Foot!!! (or is it chicken feet? I really don't know) Luke is helping Haley count her dominos, clearly we baby her.
While we played our game Kati did my mom's hair to prepare for the big Christmas pics the next day! Remember my post about having sensitive smell? Well my family made fun of me for it. Please, feel sorry for me now. While we played our games and Kati did mom's hair dad hung out in the living room, while Misha watched longingly into the kitchen wishing she could join us.

By the time we got home on Friday night Maxton was already in bed asleep :-(
But I made sure to spend lots of time with him on Saturday, here are some cute pics of him in his jumperoo! He loves it so much:

Hanging out after taking our Christmas pics: I love weekends with my family, they are crazy weekends, but I love them so much!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

What a great weekend! I can't wait to see more of your pics. You have such a beautiful family. I think, your sister Kati looks SO much like Elisabeth Hasselbeck! And, I really like Luke's black sweater...very cool.

Hope you have a great week!

Looks like y'all had a great time together. I love spending time with all of my family too. I think it's neat that you all have a family Christmas picture made. It definitely is an effort, but so worth it.

Maxton is adorable!!!

I say "chicken foot" and I love playing it!
I think it's because it's easy for me to play. ;)

I'm glad you had such a great weekend.
