So, our good friends the Taylors threw a little gathering so that our kids could exchange gifts and us adults could exchange gossip and food. Of course it was a very good time, the kids all ran around and played. Poor Brady sneezed and dripped all over the place with his red watery eyes looking so sad. Fynn and Aube were just being two fricken cute babies. All in all much merriment was had by all.
We decided to make it easier on all our pocketbooks and have the kids draw names. It was fun to see what everyone got. Natalie was THRILLED! She has now been enabled to complete her transition to "Princess Natalie". She got a tiara and pretty dress up shoes. Brady was so sad! He really broke my heart with one little gesture he did. He was crying and snotting and he put his little hand up to his mouth to cover it and for some reason it just struck me. I haven't been able to get that image out of my head! He was just so absolutely miserable and it was such a grown up gesture, I don't know if that makes sense at all, but I wanted to write it down so I wouldn't forget it.I think one of my favorite moments was when Ewan came running into the kitchen crying a little and I think it was just because he didn't have a sword and the two girls did, but in my mind he was running away from the swashbuckling wenches!P.S. Thank you Bryce for taking these sweet pictures, and I will post more after he sends us the whole batch on CD!
