In December we FINALLY were able to meet our niece Madison. She is just 3 weeks older than Payton and we hadn't been able to get together yet. It was a VERY short trip (drive out on Friday, come back on Sunday... but it was well worth it!! We got there reallllly late so the girls didn't get a chance to meet until the morning. But after that, there was no separating them! (and still is the same way when we are together)
Saturday morning started with opening Christmas presents.
Payton bought Madison some bracelets... every little girl needs some accessories and Payton at the time was obsessed with bracelets. Why not get Madison in on that?
Then we went outside to play. Notice the girls aren't bundled up. It was SO nice!! It felt like fall not winter!
Madison showed Payton how to go down the slide on her stomach. Payton really wasn't too sure about it at first. Look at the look on her face here!
But she eventually went and enjoyed it. Though she only did it one or two times and decided that was enough of that for one day!
Madison was hysterical going down though. She laughed and giggled the whole way!
We went out to dinner that night and then the guys left to go to the FSU game. Tim had my camera so I have no pictures, but Sarah and I took the girls home and they played until bed time. In matching pajamas. The next morning we tried to take pictures of the girls before eating and heading on our way. Pictures.Were.A.Disaster!
But look at the love these two have for each other!
By far the best short trip we have taken. It was extremely fast but so worth it.
Up next... Christmas '12... it will be mostly pictures!
