Wonderful "Wii"-kend

We went to visit my parents over the weekend. It was really fun, but as usual, just as CRAZY! We adopted Noira on Thursday and I was worried she would run away since she doesn't really know us yet, so we took her with us! Yeah, have you ever traveled with a cat? Nope, we haven't either. But there was no way I was waiting any longer to see my Mom! Noira was actually really good and it ended up being a lot of fun to have her there.

My Dad really enjoyed Noira:
We finally exchanged Christmas presents:
The much awaited Pillow Pets!!

Ecclesiastes 3:4 "A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to DANCE..." (Thank you, Kevin Bacon!)

My parents got us "Just Dance" for our Wii. We "just happened" to bring our Wii with us. It is REALLY fun. My Mom was even doing it, but she refused to hold a controller. How funny! Zoe was doing better than anyone. Zeke took some pictures of us while we were dancing to "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper. Yeah, I'm a nerd, but it was awesome:
The kids always love doing crafts at Grandma's House.
Thanks to my niece, Angee, for the great presents!
I love Zoe's tongue in this picture:
The boys had to engage in their traditional wrestling match
(or two or three):
What is it about wrestling at Grandma's house?
We watched the movie "Despicable Me" with Steve Carell. I have to tell you, I didn't think I would like it. Zeke and the kids really wanted to see it. My Mom got the DVD from my brother, Brady, for Christmas. Guess what? "Light bulb!" I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!! Really, it was that good to warrant 9 exclamation points. It made me cry and laugh and feel all warm and fuzzy inside (the best kind of movies). I am definitely going to watch it again:

On the way home, we stopped at Jody's house (my brother). He and his wife, Kiersten, fed us some yummy dinner and we laughed so hard I thought I would choke. They are so fun! I'm just a sappy little sister I'm sure, but my brothers are SO cool. I just think they are AWESOME! Jody reminds me a lot of Zeke (and vice versa). They are so kind-hearted and generous. They're always making jokes and impersonating voices and not being too serious. It's so good for me. Kiersten is so spunky, I think she's the only person who could put up with Jody. I mean, Jody is great, but he and Zeke can be so exhausting with their silliness sometimes. Gabe thinks Jody is the coolest guy ever. Jody gave Gabe his old amp "just in case" Gabe gets an electric guitar for his birthday. Their kids are SO cute. And well, I left my camera in the car :(

But this is Oskar, Beck, Max, and Kaia when we visited them in August
(I could NOT get them to hold still!):
Here's my wonderful brother, Jody, with baby Samantha
(she's just 4 days old in this picture):


  1. I'm so jealous!!!! I wish I could have played just dance with you guys! We have Just Dance 2 and my kids LOVE IT!!!!

  2. That looks like so much fun. Ecclesiastes 3:4 was my favorite scripture all through high school. I LOVE to dance! I'm glad Noira did well for the trip. We liked Despicable Me as well, my kids say "light bulb" all the time now :)

  3. there is something to be said about the affection of a cat - a black cat to be specific. (my fav.)

    Dispicable Me is still on my list of haven't seen yet, but must see soon movies.

  4. Love me some just dance. For sure!

  5. I seriously wanna try that! I hear you get a good workout! :) ha ha. Maybe I'll buy it for Wade for our anniversary :) I'm so glad you had a great time. You deserve it and makes me wish my family was "closer" too!! You are awesome, Lacy. I love reading your blog!!
