Prepare yourself for the cuteness

Like I mentioned yesterday, while we were in Oklahoma we also got to see Christopher’s cousin and her family! The last time we saw them was three years ago because they have been living in North Dakota for awhile now. But! They have now moved to OK so visiting them is MUCH easier (and not near as cold, haha!). πŸ™‚

Elisha actually met me for the first time when I was in high schoolΒ (still living in China!) and was visiting the States. Before I’d ever met Christopher! I had gone to church with my sister, Holly which also happened to be the same church Elisha went to. Holly and Elisha were good friends back then so she logged it away that she’d met Holly’s younger sister. I actually don’t remember meeting her specifically, but I met a lot of people during those summer trips to the States, haha! Anyway, imagine Elisha’s surprise when she met her cousin’s girlfriend for the first time and realized that she already knew her! Ha! Small world. πŸ™‚ So strangely enough, Elisha has known me even longer than Christopher has! πŸ˜‰

rach and titusAnd last, but not least… Titus! This weekend was the first time I got to meet him and he was all sweet smiles and happy baby. πŸ™‚

titusOh, and did I mention that Titus has fantastic hair? Because he does! πŸ™‚

So yeah, I hope you were properly prepared for all the cuteness in this post. Those kiddos are just super adorable. And I mean, naturally the adults are too. πŸ˜› Anyway, we had a wonderful visit with them. We are so very thankful forΒ our friendship with this sweet family!

Love Rach

  8. Oh goodness, I love these pictures! Christopher’s 2008 beard is quite impressive πŸ˜‰ And Titus’s hair…so cute!

    • Oh my goodness, he has had some ridiculous beards over the years. πŸ˜‰ I don’t mind the short trimmed beard, but he once named his beard Leonidas (as in after the king from the movie 300) and grew it out like that. It was yucky, ha!
