WELCOME TO THE FAMILY!


allow me to play proud sister for just a minute and welcome two new boys to the lovin family!

first up, mister silas rainier. he was born just yesterday and i love him already. we're so happy for you, amanda! i cannot wait to snuggle him.

and welcome also to sweet baby james the mormon (no really, that's his instagram name), who is marrying my baby sister alex. i know brandon is glad to finally have a fourth mario kart player at family gatherings. welcome to the fold.

oh and a special note of advice to james--be sure to make a careful positive i.d. at family gatherings before smacking alex on the bum, because brandon's made that mistake once already, getting mom when he meant to get me, and well, let's just say there are easier ways to get to know your mother-in-law. brandon's ears were pink with embarrassment for a week. ;)

  13. I once smacked my brother-in-law on the bum when I didn't double check. And he doesn't even look like my husband. So embarrassed, but at least he's single??? :)

  19. I did that to Matt's brother in the early days of dating. I was stuck somewhere between thinking it was hilarious and being so mortified. The whole family would not let it go and I nearly cried at the dinner table later... Haha. Thanks goodness I am ok now;)
