Childress Family Day

On Saturday, we drove up to East Point to visit with Uncle Patrick, Aunt Darcy, and Harper.  Omi and Opa had flown down as well.  This was our first meeting with Harper.  She’s the first girl in the family, so we were thrilled to be meeting her.  She was born on 9/5/09 at 31.5 weeks gestation.  On 11/8/09, she had her homecoming.  She’s doing great, and we were so happy to be able to finally meet her.  Both boys were sooo gentle with her, but Micah really surprised us with his gentleness. 
We were able to go out for some pizza for lunch.  Then, we came home and everyone decorated some cookies.  After an afternoon of naps, fun, and games, we enjoyed some burgers and hot dogs.  It was a great trip, and we all had a lot of fun.  I’ll leave you with some pictures of our day!  Enjoy!

Micah in the car…ready to go.  If you look close enough, you’ll see his first busted lip.  He and the tile floor in the kitchen had a fight on Friday night.  The tile won!IMG_4679

Caleb starting his first cookie.  I tell ya…the boy can’t do anything without sticking out his tongue.  It must help with his concentration.IMG_4693 Micah getting in on the cookie decorating fun…but he much prefers just to eat the nonpareils.IMG_4699 Micah enjoying some frosting.  I don’t think he took any bites of the cookies.IMG_4700 Caleb decorating his Gingerbread Man…note Brian taking a snooze.  He caught up on some sleep while we all decorated cookies.IMG_4703 Uncle Patrick demonstrates his “concentration” look with his tongue out.  I wonder if it’s a family trait…hmmmIMG_4704

I love that your son has to stick out his tongue!! That is just too cute! Harper is such a pretty name for a girl...I might have to steal it if we end up having another girl. LOL!
