Family's first Cruise... Cozumel!

From eating alligator to golfing to eating to playing to staying up late to neverending eating, this was a great first family cruise!  6 days out of Galveston on Carnival to Progresso and Cozumel. Good times... kids had a hard time going back to school, but they took their teachers souvenirs...

May I wear these to school tomorrow Mom?

Kassie's honest request about the new Goodwill boots I bought for a YW's 70's party...

Daron has joined the family as a contact-wearer.  There is no greater laughter than when Daron stands there at the mirror trying to put his contacts on... we all gather around and watch him kind of be a baby because he simply can't get his right one in by himself, so Stephen, Kassie and I all have to help him and we just laugh and laugh and laugh. Very riotous laughter, til Daron has tears rolling down his cheeks - he talks about how scared he is of my finger coming toward his eyeball... so dang funny.

I bought Mom some Haagen Das Raisin Rum ice-cream and she sat there eating it, and said "I tell you what, Rum is just magical."  What a hoot - she'd be such a funny drunk if she drank. 

Kenny was particularly bouncy at gymnastics this week - Kas takes him and Skye together to the same class, and they just 'leveled up.'  So Kas had to tell him that if he doesn't tone it down a bit, they might make him go back down to the lower level.  To which he said, "Oh about that -- I think I broke a bone in my back, and that's why I was bouncing around so much..."

Happy New Year 2013!

Such fun times doing fireworks in the rain, watching the ball drop, and having hot chocolate from our drink fountain! It's great to be alive!

Greeting the stroke of midnight!
