These two came to visit us this past weekend.
(my sister Tiff and her almost one-year old Madden, recent Chicago transplants)
The kids had been on the countdown.
Ok, me too.
And it lived up to all our expectations, even if the weather did not.
the weekend included but was not limited to:
The Princess and the Frog, "Don't make me light my butt!" (one guess who said that)
lots of treats
30 Rock (and a certain scene we watched about 25 times at 12:30am and laughed so hard we cried) and Modern Family
late night talks
lots of laughs
not enough sleep
a few catnaps
picnic in my minivan
getting hit on (cuz I'm hot - or cuz my sister is. yeah probably that)
So Much Fun.
I mean really.
As usual, picture taking was not high on my priority list.
Here's what I've got (thanks to Tiff)
"How's my lipstick, I mean chocolate?"
Avery l-o-v-e-d her cousin Madden.
No really she did!
(he looks innocent here, but he actually just got done whacking her in the face)
It's ok, we all had breakdowns when they left.
Alex could do nothing but watch movies the rest of the day or else she would be crying so hard she couldn't breathe (her explanation, not mine).
Thanks for coming Tiff!
The perfect weekend.
p.s. Alex told me today she wants Tiff to be her mom.
