Good Clean Family Fun

Over the Christmas holiday we were able to spend a lot of time with Russell's family.  His sister Jennifer was here with her family from Utah, and his brother Aaron was here from Minnesota with his wife and 2 little boys.  The cousins had a lot of fun playing together and we had fun getting to know Aaron's kids since we had only seen Isaac once and never met 9 month old Austin!

It was rare that the girls would go to Aaron (they hadn't seen him since they were 3 months old) but at one point they sat on his lap and he read them a book with his kids.

The girls LOVE baths and had a blast with their cute little red-headed cousins Staci and Stefani.  (I cut Staci out of the picture because at 4, I think she is a little old to have bath pictures up for people to see! ( ;  )

We had fun one night playing "baseball" with the kids.  Here is Jennifer hitting with Morgan and Russell with Madylin.  And also Russell and Morgan pitching a ball for Madylin.

By the end of the visit, the girls were kinda taken with Uncle Mark.  Or "Mawk" as they call him.

Love all the pictures! It looks like you guys had fun with all the family together! I know we have fun when our whole family gets together, which isn't very often! (By the way...most kids will go to Aaron even if it's not what they would normally do. I guess Aaron just seems pretty like-able or something!) :)
