dinner guests

Great-Pop-Pop and Great-Grammy came for dinner last Saturday. They brought puzzles and joined us on the floor to do the puzzles with us.

Before bed, they read us books.

We love when we get to hang out with Great-Pop-Pop and Great-Grammy. We are excited to play games with them soon!

tea room

Nonna took us to the local tea room on Friday.

It looks like Heidi and Anna have bunny ears!

I'm so bummed this photo is blurry.

Also, this cutie turns four today!

Happy Birthday, Anna!

If you were curious, while we were drinking tea, Jesse had some fun with Pop-Pop and Daddy.

egg hunt: AM; Easter photos

After emerging from the garage, they were off to hunt for their eggs.

Before church, we took a few photos.

At church, we found Uncle Derek and Aunt Bethany dressed to match us! (Uncle Derek has a mint green shirt underneath that white shirt you can't see so well in the photo.)

(Who knew Ellie would be here in less than twenty four hours from the time of this photo!)

meeting Ellie Grace

Yesterday, we met the newest member of our family: Uncle Derek and Aunt Bethany's baby girl, Ellie Grace! At thirteen hours old, she seemed pretty excited about all of us, sleeping through our entire visit.

The beaming daddy.

A smitten aunt.

Sorry, Aaron, I was focusing on Ellie.

This is sort of like how we sit at church - all the kids on Derek and Bethany. Guess I'll have to take Ellie. 😍

Big Guy and Nonna with five of their nine grandkids!

If you wonder what Ellie may look like, check out her cousins on Bethany's side, Liam and Naomi. She already has the same big, beautiful eyes!
