Macon Trip This Past Weekend

Matt and I are/have been lots of things (siblings, children, parents, students, friends, youth pastors, counselors, and the list is endless). However, we have never been an uncle and aunt. It is pretty exciting. Almost as exciting as being a parent! So on Saturday Merry Anna and Thomas came to our house and then we carpooled to Macon to meet baby Austyn Rose. Austyn seems so small next to our girls, but I know that won't last too long! 
We also spent some time with my grandparents- both sets. My granddaddy spent a few days in the hospital last week and is not in good health. We really thought he would have passed by now, but he is holding on a little longer. Also, Seth is in rehab and got to come home for the first time since before Olivia was born. It was so nice to have everyone together! So here are the pics from our visit!

Aunt Sbeth and Uncle Matt

Matt is really excited about his first niece! 

Gigi made Ruthie's favorite!

Cousins (Ruthie Roo and Livie Loo were pretty tired from all the playing!) wearing their matching outfits we brought for all of them! Uncle Matt did the picking out and I think he did a great job!

Kisses

Austyn- so sweet!

Olivia says "hi!"

Aunt Sara Beth with her favorite niece! (notice Seth photo bombing in the mirror- he said it was by accident)

kisses for the baby

uncle Seth and his nieces- Ruthie was reading to everyone

Seth and Austyn

reading some more- I love love love this picture and look as how great Seth is looking- bragging alert: Seth just got a full time job as an apprentice to learn to weld in Augusta! I am so proud of him!

Gigi and her grandkids

all the excitement wore Seth out!

Granddaddy meeting Olivia

kisses- we like kisses around here!

and what Granddaddy has been waiting for, meeting Austyn Rose- Granddaddy had been asking for baby for weeks and now she was finally in his arms!

Like I said both sets of grandparents came- here is Gram with her 2 youngest great grandbabies

Ruthie saying hello to Austyn- Ruthie loves babies and even said Austyn's name.

more cousin love!




Aunts, Uncles, Mommas, babies- I love this photo!

Ruthie discovered herself in the mirrored closet door- She now knows her name and when she sees herself she cannot help, but smile and say "Rutie". It is quite cute!

One last one of the precious cousins!
