Baby brother

We had such a great week with my little brother's coming to stay with us. The baby (but tallest of us all) James came, and I haven't seen him in almost 3 years! I really can't believe it had been that long, but with a 2 year mission in there the time added up. It wassooo great to see him again and he is so grown up now! The kids loved playing with him and it was like having a big brother around for them to goof off with. We didn't want him to leave, but he will be back. I plan on brainwashing him into missing TX so he will eventually move here :) James even managed a couple of dates while here! My other little brother has fallen to the brainwashing and is permanently a Texan now! We aresoooo happy to have him here. He is going to Chiropractic College and will be staying with us until he finds a place closer to school or until he is sick of us. I can't tell you how much I LOVE having him here. Here are some pics from the week.

I bet bird doo doo is good for your hair. ha ha ha.
Your brothers are so handsome. It's hard to believe that they are grown men. Last time I saw them they were little rascals. I love seeing your family pictures. You seem so happy.

You all look so happy to be together! How can James NOT want to stay there permanently??... it helps to have a big sister that knows how to show them a good time when they come to visit...he will be back for sure! :)
p.s. hope the dates went well ;)

How fun! I remember when James was just a baby and even more when he was the funniest toddler. You kids must be having so much fun with John too.
