Christmas in October

Yes this post is seriously overdue. It's the end of November and Christmas is long gone. At least one Christmas. Because my grandparents snowbird to AZ in the winter, we've been doing Christmas in October with our cousins. "Merry Christmas" greetings and hugs for long lost relatives come pretty naturally for us when everyone else is figuring what they're going to wear for trick-or-treating. We exchange presents and eat lots of food. And then we play games! Apples to Apples, Catch-phrase, and Pit reign in our minds as distinct favorites. But no game is complete without Uncle Jack playing with us. Somehow the end scores don't matter when we're rolling on the floor in stitches! Here's some cousin pictures with Me, Collin, and Amanda. (I'm not sure where Alissa, Emily, Mia and Thomas were.)
Amanda...Me

Trying to be tough...we're not very good at that no smiling thing

They seem to have mastered it though

Monkeys? ...or something

The cousins are the best! And Uncle Jack is the quintessential PERFECT Uncle!

We should call it "Christoberfest". What do you think, Kaish? Next year I want to carve snow flakes into pumpkins.

Nice pictures of people not smiling! Don't Amanda and Collie look like siblings?

Ya...they do look like siblings!

In a way I can see why people think we look like siblings. Kinda........ sorta..... I guess..... Not really though!
