Canpfires and Cousins

A few weeks ago both my brothers came up to St. Johns with there families and spent a couple of days. Jason, Maren, Paige and James came on a Saturday. Jay went home the next because he had to work but Maren and the kids stayed til that Wed. On that Wed my Bro Chris and his family came up. The kids all had so much fun together. They climbed trees and around like little monsters, one night we roasted marshmallows and had tons of fun together. Maybe next time Ash and her family will come also

On that Friday me and the kids and I packed up and went to the valley for Easter at my Grandma and Grandpas house. It was so nice my Grandma had a great spread and all my Buchanan side of the family was there. The kids had fun they played in Grandmas big orange tree and did the usual Egg Hunt.

I was planning on going back home the next day but then ended up staying the rest of the week so that I could go to Ashley's baby shower. The kids and I had a great time I took them swimming a few times at Heather and Millie's apartment. The girls bought wooden bird houses and painted them, Sadie learned how to knit on her fingers and is going to make a jump rope out of it. We went to the mall to played and eat lunch (that is one of the girls' fav. things) I left my camera at my moms so I will post the pics when I get it back this weekend.

Jordyn I had this on my phone

Now that we are back home things are business as usual. Sadie is back to the school routine, although she is home today with an ear infection, and I am babysitting 2, 3yr old little girls who are good and sweet, a 5 yr old for a few hours after she gets home from school and also a 8 week old baby I don't have him full time yet, just when they need me here and there for right now. Needless to say my house is a wreck most of the time but I am doing my best to keep up with is despite what JC might tell you.
