Aunt Leslie's House

Now that I've been on Facebook and have reunited with so many of the Rees cousin back in St. Louis, I've had a flood of childhood memories. Some of my favorites are the times we spent meeting with all of the cousins at my Grandma Rees' on Sunday afternoon. Now that I have my own kids I love that they will have similar memories, both at their Grandma McEuen (G's house) and since my parents aren't available (on a mission in Romania) they also have Aunt Leslie's house. I was reminded of those days when I saw these pictures. My kids LOVE to go to Aunt Leslie's house- I'm not sure if the feelings are mutual, but they keep inviting us back. Thanks Aunt Leslie for the Sunday afternoons that my kids will always remember.

Nick just loves all the attention- can't you tell?

Picture Perfect Sunday

It was a gorgeous overcast day. In Arizona you really appreciate a little cloud coverage. Unfortunately the kids were starving and so we only had time for a couple of shots- it's too bad, we could have actually had our Christmas cards done early for a change.

Happy Halloween!

Elyse, Licity, Ethan
Nick, Elyse, Licity, Maci, Ethan

This year was a really fun HALLOWEEN, thanks to Leslie and her fabulous neighborhood! I'll admit that we did lose Licity for a little while (like 20 minutes), but when we found her the large group that had formed around her starting clapping. We were told that she didn't freak out- she just felt special with everyone looking at her (that's just like Licity). Ethan loved the haunted house that a neighbor had built and went through like five times. Maci really loved collecting candy, but hated keeping on a costume. She ended up wearing a princess skirt with some random butterfly wings- luckily she's cute in just about anything (but not worth forcing any pictures).
