So I have to tell you about this next group of pictures. My sister-in-law, Kelley, is a total hoot. She gave Ruthie a princess dress that Ruthie would not wear so Kelley tried to motivate her by wearing it herself.
She is a nut which is one of the reasons I love her so much. Lucky for The Weather Channel, she is coming back next weekend for all the festivities. I bet she will be the one who starts the singing or the snow ball fight. She is just that much fun.
When Kelley's idea didn't work, my niece put another one on and that did the trick. Ruthie wanted to do whatever cousin Madeline was doing.
I love this last photo. This is my brother Mark with Sam (Samuel Mark) playing Wii Rockband. Of all my relatives, Sam reminds me of Mark the most.
