THEY'VE COME AND GONE

Well, my sister and her family were here once again, but left back home to Hawaii (insert sad face).

They stayed with us the last two days they were here, so that was a blessing. All the kids mesh so well together. The big kids are off in their own world, and all the little ones play together. Especially Veronica and my nephew Nicky. Adorable! They loved holding hands, and she was also helping him roller skate. It's nice to see that they've already "bonded." My brother in-law said they may be back in two months because he wants to purchase some furniture here to ship back to Hawaii, so I will be praying they do!

The last two days they were here, we went roller skating, and we also went to dinner with my mom.

Here they are after skating! You probably don't even notice, but Isaiah is missing from the picture!

Here are the "teens" at dinner.

And look at this California Roll with the fresh avocado on the outside!

My mom & my sis. Yes, I know, we look alike!

And here's "mama" (grandma) with all the little ones!

It's great that all the kids got along fine. At some of my gatherings, the kids don't mingle and stayed away from each other. Guess they were shy or something. Your sis and mom do like very alike. You look like your mom too but slightly different.
