More Family

My sister and her family were here from Friday night until Tuesday noon. It was really nice to spend time with them and get some help around the house. My nephews were really cute with Sarah. My nephew Ethan (who is almost 3) wanted to hold her and called her his Sarah. He also calls Bekah his Bekah. My nephew Dylan (who is 6 ½) at first did not want anything to do with Sarah, but later told me that Sarah is so cute. We are so lucky to have these boys as our nephews. I am glad that Bobby has a chance to spend time with his nephews since he doesn’t have boys.

Even though the weather called for rain, we ended up having a beautiful weekend of weather. I am so glad. I cannot imagine if it had been cold and we couldn’t have been outside. It would have been very loud all the time. When Bekah gets together with her cousins, they have a lot of fun, but they are very loud!!

My brother-in-law Rich spoiled us rotten with all the food he cooked. My sister definitely got lucky when she found this one. He can cook!! The weekend consisted of a Rachel Ray recipe of Moo Shoo Pork Pockets that we ate in lettuce cups, cooking out, and an amazing chicken with mushroom/zucchini risotto. Mmmmm!! Bobby and Rich, along with Dylan, also cooked part of breakfast on Monday over an open fire in the backyard. That’s my adventurous husband that loves the outdoors!!

My sister Melissa used her gifts while she was here to reorganize the toys, help me put up the maternity clothes and get out my spring clothes, wash dishes, and also hold the fussy baby so I could get a few things done.

Thank you Gary Family!! We love you very much and can’t wait to see you in May for Ethan’s birthday!! Sarah and Bekah will have grown so much by then.
