A: I'm so happy! This is Jay my best buddy, and we are playing Risk! skipadeedoo!
J: Don't touch me weirdo.
This is Sterling's classic "why is this camera in my face" face. Some how he is still stinkin' adorable.
Now I need you all to summon your inner nerd for a moment. Here we have Reece. Captain of his football team, star actor, and all around stud muffin; creating a clay model of his self imagined world "Antoroth." May I add, he whipped up that batch of play dough himself, dyed it different colors, drew the country lines with a complicated grid system to perfectly mimic his original artwork, and modeled the whole thing. If it wasn't so intensely creative, I would have been making fun of him the whole trip.
Now, the reason we came in the first place:
blew my mind.
This is the new house! (totally cozy, spiffed up little place)
Starr made everyone little name tags. I think this one was my favorite.
The fam bam. Though I mostly posted this one for Tori's face. I <3 her face.
Speaking of faces I love. Isn't she lovely! Pretty sure she is supposed to be hitting an awkward phase right now...nope I don't see it. Anyone?
I was burnt out on "Nerts" so Austin taught everyone a new one, "13." Big hit. For more information on how to play contact Austin Tyler Fife, current champion and forever ruler of my heart.
The Birthday Girl!
Austin and I couldn't stay for her birthday, so we celebrated early. Our first gift was to turn this:
Moving is still hard even after 20 practice houses. I think they just might be here to stay.
(knock on wood quick!)
The next part of the gift was the "mom spa." This package includes:
Hair played with
roses presented by Sterling
two Brown kids original song arrangements sung while you are being pampered.
private candle lit bath
...she cried. I'm guessing she liked it?
You are loved mom, even if we don't show it this well very often.
I adore the feeling in this picture from the boys particularly. they look so completely involved in making mom feel happy.
So long famaree! See you again soon!
