Long time no see blog world! Ok, so nothing super pressing has been happening. But, I started going to the gym and it always takes me a while (apparently) to start adding things back into my day that I have been neglecting (i.e. blogging, cleaning house, laundry...... the list goes on and on and on).

A little while back we celebrated my husbands grandparents 55th anniversary! Can you even imagine! 55 years! What an amazing testimony to the true power of love!

Adorable, right?

 So where do I sign up for a love like that? Are they not so adorable. And (honestly) they look SO happy for not only being married for 55 years but raising 5 of the MOST wild kids ever! Ok, 4...Carmen is normal. But the others are CRAZY :)

One of my favorite parts of family get togethers is (kinda) forgetting I have a kid (because I have SO much help from my father in law!). Sooo.... maybe you guys wanna move here?

Just to brag for a moment... don't I have the MOST beautiful mother in law EVER!

 My cousin Chad isn't as creepy as he looks here. I kept saying "look natural" and "pretend I am not here" maybe this is his natural look?

Lola (what Gramma Ridout wants to be called, instead of "great grandma") is holding one of my favorite babies ever. 3 1/2 month old Cooper (who weighs over 17 pounds!). I LOVE chunk babies SO much!

 Cooper with Auntie Em
 Just LOOK at that mad face! I love it so much! Mad faces are WAY more adorable when it isn't your child making them :)

Cooper with his gorgeous gramma Debbie!

 Sorry, I am a little obsessed with his face! And his mama assures me that she does kiss his cheeks a lot!
 Could this be MORE perfect!

I LOVE family get togethers with the Ridout Family. So many stories come out from the kids about their childhood and each time I am shocked that they are still alive (They might not be if gramma Ridout knew everything they used to do)!

I love celebrating Gramma and Grandpa Ridout. What a legacy they have instilled in their family. I feel blessed to have married into a family like this!

And now back to normal home life. The following 2 pictures are 2 of my most favorite faces my boy makes. Love him.

Tenn has 2 fav friends to hang out with. They are 2 of the cutest girls (that I am not related to :)

Andrea trying to act like she doesn't want her picture taken!
