New Years Weekend

We had one of the best New Years ever because we got to spend it with some best friends from Florida. We met them at Leslie's parents in Arkansas for the holiday weekend. It was a blast and a big thanks to Dave and Becky for hosting. Chris and Daniel are worse than girls when it comes to planning a weekend together. There were hours of phone calls and excitement building up to the big weekend and we packed as much stuff as we could in those days. Every time we get together with the Evans there is a tradition now of finding some place to race cars. No not really for the kids but for our men. We really did have a great time and wanted to share just a few pictures from the trip. The kids love each other and get along so well. Carson calls them his cousins and can't wait to see them again. We love these kids like they are family and love that they pick up right where they left off the last time they were together.

Oh this was Daniel and Chris acting 12. This was right before Chris fell off the pogo stick and landed on his butt and we think bruised his tailbone and Daniel fell of a ripstick and thought he broke his toe. Dr. at home diagnosed it as "turf toe"! We laughed so hard!! These two are really kids at heart.

Here are the girls and Daniel. They wanted him to hold all three of them. They attach themselves to him as soon as they see him. You can always here Les in the background saying "leave Uncle Dan alone for awhile". He loves it and they are so adorable!

These three are all one year apart. Faith-7, Carson-6, and Aubrey-5 They were raking leaves for Becky!

Here are the boys "ice fishing". Really they were just breaking the ice with sticks and loosing the sticks and almost falling in the frozen pond to fetch them. Boys will be boys!

Here is my sweet and silly Cameron. He found lots of girl stuff to play with, which we don't have at home, so he took real advantage of it. For most of the time he carried one of the girls purses in each hand. Daniel just loved it!!

We had such a fun time and can't wait to see them again soon! Daniel and Chris have already planned a vacation for all us this summer right before school starts. And yes it does include a NASCAR race in TN. We love you, Evans and see you in August!
