Our week with my sister and family, Part 4

We went over to my parents' again on Sunday afternoon for an open house, but I forgot to take any pictures there. So here are some pictures from Monday.

We "girls" and Sam got together to decorate cookies. Actually, Jim brought Sam over later, because he slept in that day, so I didn't get any pics of him decorating. Here's one of Auntie Jojo and Kenzie:
And one of Julie, Sarah, and my mom:
And later, we were able to get a photo op of all 5 cousins together on the couch:
And I also went out for lunch with Jo that day, for some special sister time, which we try to have, every time we get together.

I came down with another bug of some kind over the weekend . . . started out with a cough for a couple days, and then turned into a fever for the past 2 nights. My temp is down today and I'm feeling better, but still lacking some energy. So needless to say, we didn't spend any time with Jo and family yesterday. Hopefully they will be able to come over here later today so we can see them one more time before they leave. It seems like the week has just flown by, but we are so thankful for the opportunity to see them at all!! Hopefully we will have the chance to go visit them in NV, one of these days. I would love to see the West--one of the many places I have never been!

That wraps it up for now, but I hope to get a few more pics up later!

Tell JO she looks great, and I miss her. I'm glad I finally got to see pictures of her. Are all those kids hers and yours? Love you, and praying that you get healthy.

Tracy--nope, the 2 oldest girls are my brother and sister-in-law's children. Jo only has one, so far--the baby (Darrin). He is a little over 4 1/2 months.

Thanks for the prayers! BTW, I was so happy to see that Andy came through his surgery well. I'll try to leave a comment on your blog soon. And I haven't forgotten about the recipes you wanted--will try to get those posted soon. :)

Love you!

Bummer about getting sick near the end of the visit. Were you able to see her one more time?

The west is so pretty. I have only seen Arizona, but I enjoyed it so much (even though I had TERRIBLE morning sickness). I would love to see more of the west and the big National Parks.

Thanks for sharing pics of your family. How many brothers and sisters do you have?
