For the past several years, we've made it a tradition to get together in the middle of January with the "younger generation" of Leslie's family. It's always so neat because most family reunions are planned by grandparents; but, instead, this is the 20-, 30- and 40-year-old cousins wanting to get together. And now that we have kids of our own, it's even more important to see each other regularly. We've gone to Peoria, Ill., a couple times in the past, last year was in St. Louis and this past weekend — everybody came to our house!
Between bouts on the Wii.
As our little diva-in-training, I taught our niece Kenedee to do this dramatic hair flip and say, "Ooh la la." Here she's practicing with Lyndsey.
Then, after that line, her routine continues, "I'm ready for my close-up!" Well, while shopping at Steve & Barry's recently, Leslie found an extra-small women's T-shirt (perfect as a night shirt) that says exactly that. Too cute! This aunt and uncle are in heaven.
