We made the trip up to Rock Island to celebrate Christmas with my dad's family on January 5. We also celebrate my Grandma & sister's birthdays that weekend, too!
I was a terrible photographer that day and didn't get many pictures of anything besides Kinley...imagine that. Even though I take tons of pictures, I still feel annoying when I ask everyone to pose for pictures. My cousin Kari also blogs and feels the same way but we both agreed that we are so happy when we actually have lots of pictures of everyone! (I'll try harder next time).
Kinley entertained us while we waited to eat. She is SUCH a cheeseball & I love it!
Ryan & Kari's son, Tyler, got a hold of my camera at some point so I had lots of beautiful self portraits! I think he's following in mommy's footsteps.
My brother, Andy, & Alicia (recently engaged!) and Cora.
Do we have a future gymnast in the making? Kinley practicing her bridge on the table...maybe we need to start working on manners? Oops!
Here's big sister practicing on cousin Jake! He's only 4 months younger than Kinley but is still a peanut so she thought she was big stuff playing with him.
Hhmmm...I'll take that bottle! She was super sweet but laid on him a few times, ha!
Here's G-ma & G-pa opening their gifts.
This post has been all over the place so I'm just going to wrap it up. I love getting together with our family from up North but it's never long enough! We had a great extended Christmas season and feel so blessed that we can make time to get together with everyone in our huge family.
