There's always a welcoming committee at our house
that consists of many happy and excited children!
So when Katie and Emily arrived it wasn't a quiet event!
Our sweet little girl had lots of snacks while she was on the plane!
Anything to get through the 2.5 hour flight!
Traveling is getting more challenging for Katie,
Emily is still on her lap but she wants to move about!
Katie worked throughout the week and the children and I babysat!
I promise we only watched a little bit of TV!
And of course- all pre-school learning shows!
She loves playing with the toys at Nana's house!
And there may have been a few open mouth kisses given to the doggies?
Yuck! Don't tell Katie!
This toy has been around forever and is still loved!
Everybody needs some outdoor time!
Yep, there really is a balancing toy eagle on her toe!
She put on quite the show for all of us!
Nursery rhymes, clapping
and laughing, all at once!
Whew, what a workout!
Her audience love it and cheered her on!
Then it was off to the apple orchard while the rest of the world was in school!
(We start school in late July so we can take days off here and there!)
Katie met us at the orchard and brought her camera for a photo session!
And I couldn't resist this opportunity!
Emily was first in the log but all the kids got their turn!
See the my side bar!
Kathryn Lee Photography just keeps on working while we keep on playing!
If I take a picture of Luke...
I have to a picture of Joey...
and vice versa...
They keep tabs!
Pictures, hugs, kisses, thumbs up, pretty much everything!
Ava is a very patient and gentle babysitter!
She adores Emily and Emily adores here!
And guess who surprised us at the orchard!
It was impossible getting all 14 to look at me and smile at the same time!
They all wanted to watch Emily!
Love this little house at the orchard!
We need your HELP!
We need a name for Grand baby girl #2!
The parents are out of ideas and the Nana...
may have taken many of the great little girl names!
We are not opposed to reusing one of the Aunties names- we love them all!
Please post your ideas in the comments or on FB!
THANK YOU soooooo MUCH!!!
