Happy Christmas Vacation!

The house is a total disaster and the kids are eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch for breakfast, lunch, and dinner but they are happy as can be! That means mom and dad are happy too. Welcome to Christmas break!

Stamps Christmas Party 2010

This year we wanted to do something a bit more tropical. I'm too tired to caption all of the pictures. But I will say this: "yes, those are individual oreo cheesecakes, and yes they were amazing."

A big thank you to everyone who came and brought yummy food and good conversation.

The Face

This is Summer. Also known as "SummerFace", "Summer the face", or recently I have just taken to calling her "The Face". Last night we were wondering out loud "where did we come up with that name?" I don't think we figured out the genesis... but one look at her, and maybe it's not so hard to guess.

Welcome Autumn

Our first park day of the Cooler season. Everyone was in their sweaters. It seems like it just happened overnight. We went to the park to celebrate our new friends birthday. Summer is enjoying a lolly from the pinate the kids destroyed with a smile.

The Very first place Summer took us when we arrived at her house was this amazing breakfast nook in Swansboro that served the most incredible fritters. We picked strawberry but they also have banana and peach. We sat at the bar (best seats in town) so we could watch the magic happen. At one point one of the lady cooks saw one of us without a plate and yelled at us "Ya'll ain't going without breakfast". Certainly not! So we ordered a shrimp omelet that was to die for!

We got together with Will and Maggie and their brood. They came down from Raleigh to see us at Summers house. They are in the middle of a killer game of Simon Says.
Maggie is in Beauty school and Julia is benefitting here from her expertise!

Summer rented us a house on the beach to stay at while we were in NC. Here are all the Stamps Grandkids

Uncle Jonathan took everyone Shrimping down off the pier.

Giacomo was coerced into giving his cousin a kiss because he just made her cry. sweet boy!
Mason, Penelope, Emerald, Cooper, Savanagh and Steve.

The babies presented grandma with a sand pie.
These boys boogie boarded the entire time we were at the beach. They looooooved it.
Giacomo, Summer and Summer
Here are all the Kelly grandkids. It was our last day and Mason was a little sad to leave and Julia was sacked out in the car but we were determined to get the photo no matter what!
Thank you so much, Kehr's, for such a wonderful visit. You really put on the dog for us. We love you tons. I wish we could do it every year...Next time at our house;)
