WOW- do I have so many blog posts to catch up on... Our Christmas season has been such a great time away with family and friends, and it has been truly away for us in many ways!!  Thus, a return to normalcy is welcome and a wrap-up of 2011 is in order to ring in the new year.

To Start: COUSINS.  Cousins are awesome.  James is now even saying his cousins' names which just melts my heart- I captured it on video today! :-)  He just loves his cousins 'c-oorie' and 'ladaline' and of course baby 'jack-jack'.

I had to dig back through and find a few sweet pictures of my James and his cousins Corrie and Madeline- they have been notoriously difficult to photograph in a group apparently, as I couldn't locate very many pictures! haha.  But, after the sweet ones of the girls with little Hayden, I couldn't resist going back through.

hilariously best group photo of our visit in October...
yes all three wanted to play in the pak n' play together, and ironically enough James learned to climb out of it all on his own that trip.  A heel hook his Auntie Christina would be proud of.

James and Madeline.  A shared scrutiny for Yo Gabba Gabba.
Almost 2 and just turned 4
