Visit with the Houston Cutrers

We had so much fun getting to hang out with the Houston Cutrers for a whole week. My brother Bill, his wife Elisabeth and their two girls Abigail (Abbey) and Alexis (Lexi) came up to Louisville for the week of Christmas. The cousins all had so much fun playing together. Here are a few pictures of our adventures!
Here are the girls, eating and playing with jingle bells.

We all went to see the movie "The Tales of Despereaux". There were 11 of us total. It was a great movie and the kids enjoyed the popcorn and candy.

We got to decorate cookies. I think by the time they were decorated there was more icing and candies than cookie!

Even Uncle Bill got in on the cookie decorating action!

One night we had a movie night/pajama party at Grandma and Grampa's house. My Mom bought matching Christmas pj's for all the kids, so they decided to wear them. We all watched Home Alone together.

Grampa snuggled up with Emily, Abbey and Maddie.

For Christmas Bill and Elisabeth gave Emily and Maddie matching sweaters. Abbey and Lexi already had them, so the girls all wore them together!

Emily and Abbey playing the piano. Lexi and Maddie enjoying a snack.

Zachary wore his blue striped sweater to go with the girls pink stripes.

We went to Graeter's and had some yummy ice cream!

Then tried to get a group shot - after filling them with sugar!

We had a great time hanging out with all of them! We miss them already.

Hi Jennie! I was so glad to get your Christmas letter because I had lost all of your contact info! Your family looks like they are growing like crazy! I'm so glad Kasey is working from home. Stephen started working from home this summer and it has been wonderful. We had a baby this past summer (finally!)-- a little girl named Noel. If you'll shoot me your e-mail address, I'll send you pictures. I'm not sophisticated enough to have a blog yet.
