Happy New Year!!

Christmas 2010

We had a great Christmas! Julie really got into Santa this year and had been looking forward to checking out what he brought her Christmas morning. We opened gifts, had a delicious Christmas dinner and really enjoyed our time together.

Here are the kiddos waiting patiently at the top of the stairs to come down and see what Santa left for them. Corbin, Robin and Chris, and April and Jacob came over for Christmas morning with us. Of course they are super cute in their matching pjs.
Here is Aaron checking out one of his gifts. The kids got so many wonderful new toys, they couldn't even wait to get them out of the boxes before playing with them!

Julie is all about princess anything right now. And she is fixed up! Here she is with her princess sleeping bag, princess pillow, and princess headband.
Aaron and Corbin got a couple of riding toys and now all three of them love to race down the hall.
Julie got a hair salon and it has been a center of playtime for her and her bro since Christmas day. She loves it! Here she is fixing bro's hair while wearing her new princess dress, which she has worn everyday since Christmas morning.

And of course every princess needs a castle. Aaron and Corbin love to play in it too but I'm pretty sure to them it's a fort or something and not a princess castle. : )
Here's the cutest little Santa you'll ever see. Sorry for the sideways picture, I couldn't get it corrected. But believe me, it's worth turning your head to see the little Corbin guy as Santa. He is such a cutie!! I'm a lucky Aunt to have this little guy for a nephew!!
And this isn't a new Christmas toy but what Christmas wouldn't be complete without a 4-wheeler ride outside, right? They seem to be having a great time!!

And we're back!!

Let's see, what all has happened since my last post.....Julie turned 3 in March... We moved from Memphis, TN to Benton, AR in May... Ben started his new job in May, then quit that job and started his new new job in October.... We had a summer full of swimming, trips to the zoo and park, and my sister April's wedding.... We made our Thanksgiving trip to Texas to visit with family... Aaron turned 1 in October... Julie started gymnastics and day school this fall.... And I think that about covers it!! We are really enjoying being back in Benton with family and it is working out really well so far. Here are a few recent pictures of the kiddos, some are from late summer, some from a trip to the pumpkin patch, some from Halloween.... just a sampling for all of our friends and family!!

Welcome little Corbin!

My sister Robin and her husband Chris had their first baby last week! Corbin Lee Humes was born on Thursday, Feb. 25th. He was 8lbs 1oz and 21 inches long. And he's such a cutie! We spent last weekend over in Benton with everyone and are going back this weekend. We can't get enough of the little guy! : )

Julie and Aaron had a blast getting to know their newest little cousin. These kiddos are going to have such a great time together when they get a little older.

And here's a little picture of Julie "fishing" in the creek at my parents' house. She has discovered the woods and loves playing outside, now that it's warm enough to do so! She's going to have so much fun playing in that creek as she grows up, just like my sisters and I did!
