blogging? what's that?

alrighty peeps - all this talk of trunkiness and planning of reunions has caused some guilt inside of me for my lack of blogging more family pics while the grandparents have been missionarying in far away lands. so to remedy this i'll be picture dumping on this blog as well as our blog. hope you likey. warning: this post is not for the faint of heart. good luck.

celebrating the early december birthdays at the east side mccoy's house last sunday

kennedy - 2
kenzie - 17
brandon -60

apparently kennedy was slightly horrified by brandon's blowing of the candles

and much more careful with her own candle

which i made her do twice since i'm OCD about picture-taking

on her actual birthday we did a birthday breakfast and present-opening in the morning
well mostly atticus did the present-opening because he's a real helpful brother like that

my girl tried on her clothes as she went along
this gold glittery number was a real hit
wish they came in my size

we also visited bass pro shop last weekend for our annual free family picture with santa
the boys both asked for ipads
kennedy just asked to be rescued from santa

safe only in her brother's arms

and the very large aquarium

and the very large tree

the maniacs were there too

and speaking of maniacs - this little gem is from way back on mother's day
when i asked them if i could get a nice picture of us all together
not so much

alrighty - congratulations if you've made it all the way to the end of this marathon post
my guilt has been temporarily relieved
