Catching up on the Christmas posts....We spent Christmas day with my mom's sister and her family. Here are the Osterbergs, Butchers, and McCorkles!
We got all the kids to stand together and smile! My cousin's children and mine...Peter, Elijah, Simeon, Moriah, Justin and Azariah....with Jane down in front. :) They all had a great time playing outside...
....until it was time to make cookies! We have been making cookies ever since I can remember. I am so excited that my own kids are now part of the tradition.
Peter learning from the Master Baker - Gramma. :)
Roll out the dough, use the cookie cutters, and decorate!
Yum! I just love that proud little smile!
The sisters and their granddaughters. Love.
While we were there we went back to Rudy's...one of my favorite BBQ places in Texas!
Part of my parent's present to the kids was a trip to Build a Bear! Woohoo! I cannot count the times we have passed by the bright and inviting store while the kids have begged to go inside. They were elated!
Step one - pick out your fury friend.
Step 2 -Fill him with stuffing.
Don't forget his little heart!
Step 3 - bathe your friend and get him all squeaky clean.
Step 4 - name your buddy and print off a birth certificate.
Jane picked Pinky the Penguin, Peter had Hot Wheel the Iron Man Bear, and Justin made Dusty the Polar Bear. What a wonderful time! Such fun memories...the kids are still sleeping with and toting around their Build a Bears. Thank you Gramma and Pa Jon! :)
