Sister Time

My sister came to visit from Alaska with her 3 cute kids. They were here for 3 weeks (never long enough) and we had some quality time together. Of course, I was so busy having fun that I forgot to take pictures of what we did. I seriously love hanging out with her when she comes or talking to her on the phone when we're far apart.

  • Thank goodness for late nights and getting kids to sleep. We stayed up 'til 4 a.m. one night, watching a movie, coloring my hair, talking about EVERYTHING, drinking a giant mug of hot chocolate. Ahhhh, sister time!
  • Thanks to Pat, we got a couple of hours just to ourselves. What did we do? A pedicure, Starbucks for hot chocolate and Target!!
  • We went swimming one day at the Murray Rec. Center.
  • Even though my mom lives here, she came to stay with me for a couple of nights. Hooray!
  • She watched my kids while I had a Dr.'s appointment, I watched her kids while she had a hair appointment...just how sisters should be. Swapping kids and helping each other out.
  • My kids are still talking about how the miss "Aunt Mindy". She's the best!!
We had a late Christmas party with the whole Marshall side and exchanged gifts with each other on New Years day. It was so fun to have all the cousins together and make memories. I cherish these times. We also got together for Jaden's b-day (good party Jar and Reb) and the cousins got to have more play time together (sleep over, Jumpin' Jacks and an interesting visit to the Hare Krishna temple). Yay for the Hymas family for coming all the way from Alaska to help us make these memories!

Oh my goodness, look at all the kiddos together. They are all getting so big. I remember when you first sent a picture of Lucas when he was born with all of his hair.
