When Ben comes home...

Ben and Janae finally came to Bakersfield to unwrap their Christmas presents.
Ben was so excited.

While we were all together... the girls got pedi's,
Sara showed us how cool she was,
we decorated Valentines cupcakes,
some of us jumped on Ben...
and again.
We played Charades,
and tried some new make up tips.
We love it when Ben (and Janae) comes home.
Well most of us do...

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

The boys and I took a little trip to Baskin Robbins...
The rainbow sherbet was yummy as well as colorful.
Two thumbs up!
We (they) tried the tire swing, and...
checked out the progress on the Super Wal-Mart.
"Man! We should have brought our hard hats! They're doing it all wrong!"

You know what they say about weddings and funerals. It's true, sadly that those are usually the only times families get together. I am grateful for that blessing that goes with both those events. When my mom went into the hospital two days before Christmas our family started coming together and throughout the next two weeks we laughed and cried and remembered. Mom would have loved it all.
