Not all the fam came in on the same day. Dev (youngest bro) was the first since he is in his last semester at BYU-I (accounting major, music minor) he had more time to spend...3 weeks...SCORE for all of us! He flew into the Ft Wayne airport on a Sunday & up to this point, the boys knew absolutely nothing. However, I thought it would be fun for them to surprise Dev at the airport so I told them we needed to go help someone by picking them up at the airport and taking him to his family (100% true!). Sadly--from my end--they are too smart & started speculating once they realized how crazy it was that I wouldn't tell them who it was, they gathered it might be someone related to us....
Still, the reunion was not any less sweet.
Must.be.connected.at.all.times...all the littles gravitate toward Uncle Devy-poo...baby magnet.
Devin thought it was pretty amazing how much more Rhett eats than Ari every morning so I snapped a shot of their oatmeal bowls.
And, thanks to him being there, I was able to do my students' masterclass sans toddler 1 & 2. Peaceful, is the word that comes to mind.
Due to his impeccable timing, Devin was able to come to Tony's work "Santa/luncheon" shin-diggy-dig. They serve a mean, *free* Christmas meal and let all kids (up to age 10--boys last year, sniff for 'growing up' children') sit on Santa's lap (or scream, as the case may be) & receive a personalized gift! Jaydon/Jyson got legos, Rhett got a book & Ari...I forget already. Awesome.
