Gotta LOVE Sundays
(Visit with family and playing with friends)

I have some family that live here in OKC!
We have been hanging out with them since we got here
and today is the first time I was able to snap some pictures.
Brent is my dad's brother.
He is married to Susan and they have 5 kids.
They have 2 boys and 3 beautiful triplet girls.
Its so sad that I haven't met my cousins and aunt and uncle till now,
but I am SO glad and feel SO blessed
that I have been able to spend time with them and get to know them.
I am going to make sure and get more pictures
when everyone else is there
but I got some good shots today.

It has been so nice to have these guys here.
Its so crazy how fast my kids have latched on to Brent and Susan.
I know they miss seeing my mom and dad everyday
and having these guys here has totally helped.
Brent is a lot like my dad
and Susan is a lot like my mom
and I think my kids can sense that.

they love him...

the kids had so much fun running around and playing
and the guys played some ball
love nights like these!

JD's cheese... nice!! It was so fun tonight to just get out of the house and have the kids run around. I love nights like these too! Glad you guys came and chilled for a bit. Glad I'm your new bestie cuz I feel the same way!! lol (and I can't believe my roots and bumpit hair!)
Your uncle and aunt look like so much fun. It's so nice you have some family here. Nothin like family!!

Oh yeah, I love Jace and Hewitt in every pic we take of them. Such characters!!

I'm so glad that the boys have a Grandpa and grandma figure right now, it's so cute to see the boys wrestling with Brent. I hope you will always keep in touch with them when you come home, it looks like they have established quite a bond. We loved looking at all the pictures.

Really cute pictures! Darling little boys!!! I'm glad you are adding new recipes to the blog! I am always in need of new recipes!!! Looks like you are enjoying your time in OKC. I didn't realize you had family there. That makes it a little easier being so far away from home! Keep posting... I love reading about your cute little family:)
