Cute cousins!!!

(I am playing catch up! I am about a week and a half behind)

Last week we had a great time visiting cousins and Aunt Kristi (aka Ayi) and Uncle Ian. There was a MASSIVE consignment sale in Raleigh, where the state fair is held, which lured us up there. Kristi and I both volunteered to work several hours so that we were eligible to shop early! There had to be 50 yards of clothes packed in an upper and lower level for each size! It was impressive! We got there at 5:00 Wednesday evening and shopped until 11:00pm! It was totally worth the effort. After all was said and done we both got out of there with enough to outfit our kids through the next winter season.

People came in with quite impressive contraptions to help carry their purchases. It ranged from the less creative double strollers (which is what I used) all the way to women pulling wagons with clothing racks duck taped to them. It was very interesting and a lot of fun to shop with my sister. Fortunately for the kids sake it is harder to find "matchies" for all of them. This winter they will all be individuals (for the most part!(: ) With that being said I'll leave you with our latest "matchies" pictures.

These three just had to have a "guwirls pictuwe"

Then the boys decided they needed one too. This just makes my heart smile. I love to watch these cousins learn to love each other and play together.

This is absolutely a picture that captures all of their personalities. Sassy, tender, fun loving, ornery, and precious. These five cover a broad spectrum of personalities, but they have a common bond that will tie them together forever. LOVE

The posing didn't last long before it started to break down and they turned into a bunch of funny bunnies! Look and enjoy what we go through trying to take these guys pictures.

"MaMEE I cool?"

"I LallyBoooy!" (aka Larryboy from Veggie Tales)

"jump, jump, jump, jump"

"Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh" :)

It is soooo awesome to see how much fun they have together. I hope they are always so close! (And I love the matchies!)

Six hours - that's some serious shpping. As always, the pictures are great.

Wonder who was working harder that night, me sorting clothes at the consignment sale or you trying to get a good picture of all five...
We sure had fun, please come again soon!

This is hysterical! They are so precious. You have really captured their personalities. What a fun few days when they were all together. Nice to watch the five of them bonding and learning to love one another.
