Dee and Papa's

We went to Kim and John's today. I tried to get a picture of Abby in the cute dress the Cotton's gave her, but it just wasn't complete without the hot pink shoes...which were not kept on!
It was such a nice day, even Aaron was bare foot all day!
Papa came home for lunch and Abby got to sit on his shoulders.
Of course, Aaron wanted to, as well!
After lunch and naps we had lots of outside time.
Watching Aaron do something!
Once we got home.
We had a really fun day!

Our Week

Here are some random pictures from the past week. They are mostly of Abby for some reason.

Monday February 20, 2012

Aaron and I made some bubbles for him to play with outside.

I thought this was funny. Abby had just gotten back from Ohio where she was Princess for the weekend and it was definitely back to the old grind with Aaron feeding her - at his discretion!

On Tuesday Aaron had swim - I moved him to a new class and I was SO pleased, but I didn't take any pictures. On Wednesday we spent the day at Papa and Dee's.

Abby had swim - look at this suit! Grandma Sheri gave it to me when I was in Ohio. I am sure it belonged to one of Abby's cousins. I LOVE it and she got so many compliments at swim!
Also on Thursday, Abby wore a sleeveless dress. It was 82 degrees...
On Friday February 24, 2012 Abby wore a sweater. Such is life here. This was also my nephew, Colton's, thirteenth birthday and I just cannot get over that!
Saturday February 25, 2012
We love our weekends with Daddy!

Ohio, Day Three

On Sunday morning we went to breakfast before church. Abby was a huge fan of Bob Evans!Abby came to service for a few minutes before I took her to nursery. She's never been in big church before!

After Abby's nap, Peyton and I took her to see my grandma. She had gone with me before dinner Saturday night and she and Grandma had a great time together. I was glad to take her back.

Grandma Beth and Grandpa Mike took us to the airport and we got there with plenty of time to eat dinner.

We had such a sweet weekend.

Ohio, Day Two

On Saturday morning while Abby was taking her morning nap I went to spend some time with my grandma. When Abby got up she had some play time with Grandpa Tom and Grandma Sheri. Here she is with a toy walker. I was so hoping my family would see her first steps, but it was not to be.My nephew had a basketball game in the afternoon. Abby got passed around plenty.
Looking sharp!
In the evening we went to dinner with my brothers and their kids. There were 12 of us!
Isn't my neice Leah about the most precious thing you have ever seen?

Ohio, Day One

Abby and I left for Ohio on Friday morning. Jory and Aaron took us to the airport. It was cool and drizzling here when we left. The weather was much nicer up North!At the airport. Abby did great on both flights. She slept. And on the way there I was seated next to the most wonderful man who has four children and has taken 17 hour flights with one-year-olds. I had changed my seat at the last minute and wasn't sure if I had done the right thing, but God was definitely in this!
Grandpa Tom, Grandma Sheri and Peyton picked us up from the airport and we drove to Cambridge. Abby snacked on Cheerios on the way and when we got home she took a great nap. She woke up after her party was under way. She stayed up through most of it and then we found some cuddly PJs and sent her to bed. She was such a great traveler!
