So, we get home from Boerne on Wednesday after Christmas, unload the car, wash clothes, repack car and drive Thursday to Edmond, Oklahoma to see my mother, my sister Shelly and her family (from Tulsa), and my brother Brad and his family (from Austin). We also go to see my Aunt Neva and John, Cousin Shirley and Jerry and Neville. It was so good to see everyone! We pretty much just hung out at the house, watched kids and played Guitar Hero. I had never seen it before but let's just say...I ROCKED!!! See photos below.
This was an attempt to get a photo of all the kids in the pajamas in front of the Christmas tree. Yeah right...it was pretty bad. Mack and Sophie refused to cooperate. Hey kids, look at your cousin Aubrey and how good she is behaving. The children behaving are Macey and Darcey (yes, my sister also has identical twins...neat huh) and Beck and Aubrey...and of course, sweet Grace.
This is my mother and our great friend Neville with my trio. Again a difficult photo to get. I think we finally put Bob the Builder on the TV to keep Mack in place. (Neville didn't get the memo about the black turtlenecks :) btw...Grace didn't want to have anything to do with anyone but NiNi and Nevi (I think they were sneaking her candy)
NiNi (my mother) and ALL her grandchildren.
The WHOLE GANG!
The night before we left, NiNi and Neville watched the kids (except Beck) so we could go out to dinner. We decided to go to Cattlemen's Steakhouse in Oklahoma City. This was one of my parent's favorite steak places. No frills just good meat! I'm such a country girl at heart.
(Look Rachael, I'm wearing my pretty new sweater :)
Who's your Guitar Hero? Well, there was a lot of good competition that weekend. Shelly and her husband, who are not competitive at all (har har) fought it out.
Here's Shelly trying to get some Starpower!
Look at the intensity on Brad's face. My mother just keeps saying..."If Brad would only practice this much on his real guitar, he would be so good."
I look like such a natural.
Now there's my Guitar Hero. Rock out Abe!
(Okay, Okay, I know that this is actually a video game and requires more hand/eye coordination than actual musical talent but let me have my dream...Abe you are my rockstar!)
Way to go Abe....beat the two year old!! Aubrey had seen her daddy (my brother Brad) play this so much that she's a natural.
