Friends over Christmas = One Epic Holiday

What happens when a Twilight Zone version of Kevin Youkilis and a beautiful, slightly hyper native New Englander meet up with 2 Southerners, one extraordinary pretty pre-teen girl, a 6 year old with a voice like sand paper and a heart of gold, and a kid who would have fit right in when "Children of the Corn" was being filmed?

One of the best 24 hours of my family's life. (And don't tell me that weird looking kid in the left hand corner of the picture doesn't freak you out just a little. And I have to LIVE with him.)

Josh and Amy came to visit and there was more wrestling, hide and seek, wrestling, jumping on the trampoline, wrestling, playing ball, wrestling, and laughing we've seen in about 4 years total.

Did I mention the wrestling?

Like some northern version of the Southern Winds, Josh and Amy blew through our home and left a ton of happy memories, 3 sad children, and 2 sad but happy adults in their wake.

And an autographed Dustin Pedroia ball for which I'll be forever grateful.

Come back anytime, guys.

We'll leave the light on for you.

Love and miss all of you already. I can honestly say that was the most fun I've had in 24 hours that I can remember in a long time. We are going to have to do that more often <3

Amy, we feel the same way here. And most definitely do we need to get together more often.+

Sounds a little wild at your house over the weekend. Any wrestling going on? :)

Great to meet you, Josh and Amy. Congratulations on surviving Rakes and Trot. :)

Ted D said...

We had a blast, sis.

Amy B. said...

They aren't that bad- nothing worse than two hyper boys. Lots of wrestling, running and playing games!

Ted D said...

What Amy didn't know until now is we had them doped up all weekend.

Trot and Rakes are quite calm by comparison.
