Before Mom came and after Jerry left for Colorado, Dad, Meg, the boys, and I made Monster Cookies. (Yeah... did you understand that?) I should explain that Monster Cookies are a Crider family tradition. Every Christmas since before I was old enough to remember my parents, sister, and I have made them. We missed out this year when we weren't able to go home for Christmas, so Dad brought the recipe with him and we made up for lost time. Better March than never, right? Or so says the 9 dozen cookies in my freezer....
We (Meg, Dad, the boys, and I) also all trekked to the beach.
Then Mom came and Roman rejoiced to have his Mimi back.
And when Jerry joined us, the men went skydiving.
Please note: This is how my son dressed himself for the day. Yes, even the hat. I love him.
Roman and Aunt Meg are inseparable.
Pappa and Liam spent some good quality time.
On their last night here we went to California Pizza Kitchen for dinner. A certain toddler has obvious love for his Mimi and Pappa.
Like mother, like son.
There is nothing like family.
