This morning I told Aiden, Andrew, and Oakely that someone was coming up to play with them. I asked them who they thought it might be. They just stared at me with blank expressions. I gave them one clue and asked, "Who do you love to play with?" Aiden looks at me with excitment across his face and says, "HEIDI!" You would think he would say anyone of his cousins, but nope, Heidi is who he would rather play with!!!
Heidi brought James and Josh up for a few hours of fun. They ran around outside, played in the sandbox, played in the shed, watched mario land cartoons, played in the playroom, chased around the upstairs with Paige and Morgan, jumped on cushions, and basically, had fun being kids and cousins!
I love this picture of Josh teasing James and all my kids staring at them. Fun times!
We ended the playing with cushion jumping! I think there were more fights and injuries than fun. Why do kids tease each other and not listen?
Dog pile on James! Even Oakley was getting involved in this game. I don't know if James really enjoyed this game or not?

Wow, you guys are fun. I love that I just watch all the chaos from a distance. Maybe Annie will join in someday. I'm not even going to attempt to be as fun as Heidi. It would never happen.

Reminds me of when we used to take the couch cushions and blankets and jump off the stairs into them. FUN!

cousins are awesome. I love seein the pic of your kids in all the couch pillows. Good to know my kids aren't the only ones who pull every last cushion off every day to built the ultimate fort.
