Cousin Love

I have to put in here the cutest little thing my 4 year old nephew Jordan did. All the kids drew names for Christmas and Jordan drew Josh. When Holly took him to buy a present he insisted that he wanted to get Josh a little backpack just like his because everytime he comes over to play he brings his little backpack and Josh always likes to play with it. It has a little pully thing that you can pull out and roll it like a suitcase, or you can wear it as a backpack. Well, the backpack was out of the Christmas present price range and Jordan didn't have enough money to buy it at the time (he earned his own money for his Christmas presents). So... Holly told him that they would just buy something else for Christmas and if he wanted to get the backpack still for Josh then he'd have to do lots of extra jobs so he could buy it (what a smart mom, huh?). After Christmas Jordan did little jobs around the house for two weeks until he had finally earned enough money to go to the store and get it. He picked out a little batman backpack and Holly said he rehearsed in the car all the way over how he was going to give it to Josh. He was so excited that he could hardly stand it. He brought it in and Josh loved it. I told him, "Jordan, that's Josh's favorite present he's EVER gotten. How did you know he would love it so much?" To which Jordan replied with a beaming smile, "I just knowed Aunt Jen."

Joshua in the backyard in SJ the day after Christmas enjoying his first snow (at least the first snow he can actually remember...) I was gone, but Kimberly said the first thing he did was run out and plant his face right in it and start licking. :)

Nana and her grandkids. At the funeral they mentioned that Papa said, "If I die and get reincarnated, I hope to come back as one of Nana's Grandkids." :)
