Yay. The cousins are here.
My brother Cougar and his family have been in Seattle with Grandpa and Grandma and they are traveling home via Spokane! We ALL stayed up very late talking and watching Cowboys and Aliens (much better than I thought it would be) and we just finished a big pancake and scrambled egg breakfast.
I LOVE having all these kids here.
It just makes me happy to be surrounded by family
The house is a MESS and I’m 100% OK with this.
I’ll deal with it on Monday.
We’re all headed over to our stake center (church building) in about an hour, to decorate for the New Year’s Eve dance–since I’m in charge! We get to blow up several hundred balloons and rig them up so they will fall down at midnight! It’s hard to believe that 2011 has come to an end … it’s even HARDER to believe that my class, Twelve (likely) opens is about 12 hours!!
I’m definitely feeling those pre-class jitters (in a BIG way!)
I’ll be checking in as soon as we get the church cleaned up AND I get home … which will be sometime next year!
