Grandparents' Day!

This beauty got the surprise of her life from her grandparents! They gave her a surprise visit for Grandparents' Day. It was really awesome. (Sorry, don't know how to fix the picture.)

 Grandparents' Day is a special day to celebrate your wonderful grandparents. They got to do all sorts of activities together at school. I think everyone involved had a nice time. I know M cherishes her memories of that day and weekend.

 There's a grandmomma under those children-getting a hug!

 Getting her make-up done!

Apparently I left out a whole bunch of important events prior to little E's arrival. Here are the kids learning how to swaddle:

M had a solo in her school program:

J took a selfie:

Unfortunately, this isn't a clip of her solo, but it is still cute!

I'll give you an intermission from the E pics with some photos I should have added in earlier blogs, but didn't. Or maybe I did and forgot they've already been shared! Where's my brain these days?! 

Here's J reading at my work: 
Doing some painting:

Picnic at the church when it was our turn to clean:

Chillin' like a villian:

A door we made with the kids at work: (A miracle happened and I came up with an idea.)
The kids made the flowers and wrote the name of their favorite book on it.

Playing on the stage at church:

Getting dressed for church. He was trying really hard to be grumpy,

but that's just not J's style!

Had to match his daddy:

A little outside fun!

Transformer love:

Falling in Love

The month of July was mostly spent falling in love with our little E. We love her so much!!

It also included a trip to the comic book store: 

This was her coming home outfit-given by Grandma. And one of her first smiles! (I'm still looking for her coming home pictures!)

Some time around the ten day mark (might have been two weeks) my dear friend Christina came and did a photo session and took some beautiful photos. This outfit was given by Grandmoma.

 (I had to bribe J with $1 so he would wear some decent clothes.)

The blanket under her in the basket was made by Aunt Geri when M was a baby.

This was a blanket I had as a baby.
