Back to SC!

After hours of driving, battling a snowstorm, packing truck after truck after trailer (with a little help... thanks Jason!) we finally made it back to SC!

I took these super cute pics of Jessica with Meggie and Kyler and I just had to dedicate a whole post to her... All of the kids love hanging out with her and Bradley was shocked today when I told him I only had one sister.  He said he thought Jessica was my sister too!  She is like a sister and we all love her very much!  (Also, Kyler is pumped about the Monster Jam... so you better get ready!)

Zuri's Two!!

We went to Zuri's 2nd Birthday party today.  The boys had a great time playing and visiting with all the kids.

 Cooper, Bradley, Hunter, Alan, and Kyler

Marie and Meggie.

Kaitlyn and Meggie.

Meggie trying to take a nap in Zuri's doll's pack-n-play.

 And, of course, the Birthday Girl... Zuri couldn't wait to dig into the treat bags after everyone had left. 

She is such a sweetheart and I can't believe that she is already 2... man time flies.

Last day in DC... for awhile anyway!

We decided to spend out last day in DC just taking in some sights...

 We've been trying to make it over to Georgetown Cupcakes for months and we finally did it... the famous cupcakes were good, but I'm not sure they were any better than what we make at home.

Kyler wasn't crazy about the red velvet cupcake he picked out so he ate some of mine.

Meggie hanging out in Downtown... with the White House behind her.

The boys playing in the field beside the Washington Memorial.

At the Washington Memorial.

We had not been up in the Memorial since 2005 so we decided to do it again... luckily the cold weather kept the crowds away and we were able to go up without tickets.

Bradley, Meggie, and Me at the top of the Memorial.

All of the kids looking out the windows.

The Jefferson Memorial with the frozen Potomac in front of it.

Our tour guide, Bradley.

 While we were at the WWII Memorial Meggie just had to have her pic made beside the column that said Texas.

And of course Kyler wanted his pic taken beside South Carolina.

And Bradley.

Here they are cheering because we are headed back to South Carolina tomorrow.

Bradley got this pic of Me and Ben while we were walking around.

Kyler all decked out in his winter gear.

Ben in front of Iwo Jima.

After we got home Meggie and Kyler decided to hop in the bath and then had to hop right back out because Meggie had an accident.  They decided to hop in the sink and bathe off instead of waiting for a clean bath tub.  Bradley thought this was great and decided to take some pics.

Funny Pics

These are some funny pics from the last week.

 Ben and Meggie sacked out on the couch.

Meggie playing in the cabinets.

All of the kids love to play with my shower cap... I don't know why we bother with toys!

New Years Day

We had to head back to VA on New Years Day but before we left we had a good lunch at my Grandma's and then stopped by Abby's for a "snowball" fight.  She had bags of marshmallows that the kids (and adults) used as ammo.  They had a great time and really got into it... as did some of the adults (see below).  Meggie had fun running around and taking bites out of the ammo.

 Caleb got a new tractor from his Nana Mac and papa.  While we were there he asked me if I wanted to see and and when I told him yes he told me I should bring my camera!... He's too funny.

All of the kids having some dinner.
