Our Trip to Texas

My eldest sister Diana moved to Texas last year with her six children who, since I spent time growing up with them, are like my little sisters and brothers! Now my other big sister Maria moved down there too! I love them all and miss them so much! Law and I had a chance to go and visit them for a whole WEEK! It was wonderful, so in this blog I am going to tell you a little bit about what we did, as well as tell you a little about my nieces, nephews and my big sisters!
Since Maria was going to be moving down there she and Kennadee came to stay with us so we could all fly down together. I was so excited that someone was coming to see my new house that I went crazy cleaning everything!
which didn't last long...

I don't know if you can tell but those are tiny baby foot prints on my woodfloor -cute!
We arrived in Austin where Diana and Aaron were waiting for us and drove to Hutto, where my two sistas now live!

I love that the have water towers EVERYWHERE!
We'll start with the kids youngest to oldest:
This is Kennadee, isn't she lovely! She is Maria's only child for now, and she is great! She loves to sing and dance she knows all the words to practically every disney song and she is and loves everything princess!

And the next is Hannah! She is currently the youngest of Diana's children.
Hannah and Kennadee are only about a month apart

so they get along great!

Hannah is becoming quite a comedian! she can remember every word in movies that she quotes and also is fabulous with impersonations! She is so-o CUTE!

then comes Gabriel, he is so much fun, the little daredevil! Gabe has grown up so much since the last time I saw him! He's getting to be so responsible, he can even do his own hair now! -but he still is the same ol Gabe, always there to make you laugh!

Patience is the next oldest, she is fun, she's smart, she is BEAUTIFUL! She always makes me feel needed and included, she always asks me to play whatever they are playing and she likes me to do her nails (along with the other ladies). She is wonderful!

and of course funny!

Samuel is Diana's oldest boy, he just turned 8 and was baptized! way to go Sam!! He is super smart and he loves to learn things! He is funny too he makes up his own jokes! He just started scouts and is enjoying that!
Here he is cool dude SAMBONI!!

Emma is the second to the oldest. She is HILARIOUS! She comes up with great stories just off the fly and they are amazing!
Photobucket
she is growing so much too, she's turning into such a PRETTY young lady!

Aubria is the oldest, she is GORGEOUS! She is so much fun, super smart, and she is extremely talented in so many things! She wants to become a seamstress and design her own gowns, AMAZING! she already has some drawn up! and she is currently learning how to sew! Being the oldest she usually gets to do all the "ladies night" activities!

Aubria even got up and did the carwash dance with me! she's such a good sport to put up with her crazy Aunt J!

Hi Jessica! Thanks for stopping by. Your son is adorable! I bet he's got you running -- they're at that mobile stage when they think they're invincible. Good luck and enjoy the exercise! =)
I sent an invite to jessica@mildensteins.com let me know if you don't get it.

You have the cutest nieces and nephews! I totally miss Diana's fam. We would see them every summer when Beck would come out. Man everyone is just moving away.
Sisters really are the sweet nectar of life!!! I feel bad for anyone who doesn't have any. Looks like you had a ton of fun.
The last post was from me not Kyle.
