I have just a few pictures to show. I'm sorry I wasn't that great at taking pictures during the drive. But here we are, and I'll try to remedy that. My sister, Heidi, and her son Jack came over this morning, and she took some pictures that I'll try to get later. I didn't get the camera out until she had already gone home to put Jack down for his nap.
Here's Silje and Grammy hanging out and reading books. I'm not sure who's having more fun! Silje asked Grammy if she had any dress up clothes, and Grammy lemented that she did not. I asked mom if she still had my old flower girl dresses from when I was little, and Mom was so excited to see them get some use again. Here Silje is wearing the dress I wore to my mom's cousin's wedding, Pam and Stewart. It's not a really good shot of the dress, though.
This picture of Knut is crooked because I don't know how to fix it on my mom's computer. Knut slept, woke up and read, and is now sleeping again. We're all hoping he feels better soon, especially Papa who has saved some T-Bone steak just for Knut for this visit that is marinating now.
This is a picture of what I saw before naptime today. If you will notice, there is a firetruck on the ground. David had asked me earlier if he could play fireman. I assumed he meant he wanted to play with the very annoying and loud firetruck, so I told him to go play it outside. As you can see, there is the firetruck, but no David. I was beginning to get worried, so I called for him, looked all over the house, all over the back yard, until I looked on the side of the house and found this...
David playing fireman. I hope the neighbors don't mind that David watered their lawn too. He was out here by himself, got the hose hooked up by himself, and started "putting fires out" all by himself.
Here's Elias just playing on the floor, and very happy. As you can see we're back in disposables for vacation...but it's really not a vacation if you have to wash diapers!
We frosted and sprinkled sugar cookies for Valentine's Day today, which I'll try to get pictures of for later. We're just having fun hanging out today! We're so glad to finally be here after so much delay with Elias in the hospital, and making sure he was up for the trip! Thank you all so much for your prayers.
