Christmas Camp!...and more

Ready for a huge mess of pictures?  Here we go!  

Bernadette meeting Penny, a little girl born exactly one week before our little BB.

A shot with our tree in the background, before all of the ornaments mysteriously disappeared from the bottom...hummm...

A snow storm a few weekends ago.  We were literally snowed in one Sunday.

Gus got all bundled up and headed out to help dad shovel snow.

A few days later my sister and her family arrived, and we got to meet baby Patrick, the miracle boy!  

Sleepy, chubby baby stretch.

Patrick smiling!

Therese loves little Therese.  Here Bernadette yawns in her is hard work being a baby!

And then the Lanoues arrived and it was time to decorate cookies...or...

For Gus it was time to eat frosting!

Somebody looks a little guilty in this picture!

Even after all the cookies were decorated, Gus stuck around...because there was still frosting!  

Then we got dressed up and took some pictures!  Uncle Paul with all the babies, Patrick, Bernadette, Rose and Gus

The rest of the shots are from Cross Christmas Camp.

If you've received our Christmas Card this will look familiar! 

Ruthie and Rosie

 Then we tried to set up all the grandkids for a picture.  Everyone was up for it....

Except Gus!

We tried moving him to the back...but that didn't help much.

After carols, Santa showed up!

Mary giving Santa her list.

And then Daddy told Gus, "No more candy!"

Poor Gussy.  Daddy can be so mean!

We are off to the big Verly Christmas event this weekend.  More pictures next week!

Don't worry!  We are still here--just busy!  I am remembering just how difficult it is to get anything done when you have a baby that wants to breast-fed all the time!  Well, I have a few minutes while Gus destroys the office!

Bernadette with her Godfather, Fr. Ben

Bernadette meeting Shannon and Jack

With Rita and Jack

A snuggle from Aunt Joyce

And the next day we went to Kansas City to see my sister!

Just 10 days old, and already on an adventure!

Gus meet Susan for the first time too!

And his idol was there, Cousin Dave.

Cousin Dave loves babies.  He kept saying, "she's so pretty!"

Rosy and Bernadette in matching pjs!

Back home safe and sound!  She is over 10 lbs now!

Getting a kiss from her brother.

Stinky face.

She's getting quite the set of cheeks!

That's all for now.  Gus is very quietly playing in the next room--with the Christmas tree!  I bet he is deep in some mischief!  

Nancy, Gus and BeBe
