Having had a couple weeks of adjusting to three little ones, I felt ready to decorate for Christmas, and Hope and Joy were all excited to help Mommy.
A much anticipated visit from their Collin Aunts and Uncles happened the weekend of Nov 23-25.
And what started out as just Chloe and Lydia planning to come see us turned into all my siblings plus our wonderful Grandma coming up for the weekend. It made for a busy and full house, but we loved every minute of it, even though we all got sick afterwards.
The girls knew what to do with all the extra big people around too! They had no lack of attention, let me tell you. :o)
So lovely to have a baby in the winter, when you can just stay indoors and cuddle the day away.
Hope is starting to get into asking "Can you tell me a story?" Well, Great-Grandma was a great person to ask! She had Hope snuggled on her lap for a good 20 minutes telling her stories from her own childhood. Meanwhile, Joy was happy to have Daddy and story books all to herself in the girls' room.
And after a full morning at church and lunch and clean up, our dear family left.
