A Great weekend!

We had a wonderful time last weekend when Adam & Alicia were down for a visit.  It passed way to quickly though, but we enjoyed every minute with them.  Lots of Norah time which they loved!

Adam has always been baby crazy.  When Andrew & Rebekah were born he loved to kiss and cuddle them and would kiss the tops of their heads and nuzzle right in.  He still does the same thing - some things never change!!!

They brought presents among which was this cute little cupcake hat.  Isn't she edible?!!

We played ""Headbanz" along with many other board games (we are a family of board game lovers!)  That game drove me crazy!

Alicia made sure she got her share of cuddles too!

Saying goodbye (tear!)

We are already looking forward to Christmas!

Christmas in July?

I am on a role with quilting or at least the piecing stage!  I made this Christmas quilt top a few days ago and will start to quilt it when my machine quilting class is finished in two weeks time.  You can't really tell from the photo, but the outside edge has snowflakes all over it in red & green. Not that I'm wishing the summer away mind you - I love this time of year.  Next weekend we are off to Upstate New York for our church pageant in Palmyra and then in August we have our 2 1/2 weeks at the ocean in our cottage in Maine.  But before all that we have the best weekend this weekend as our oldest son Adam and his girlfriend Alicia are coming.  It will be wonderful having the whole family together again.  They haven't seen little Norah since she was a newborn as they live 5 hours away in Toronto.  So they are looking forward to some play time!  

Speaking of Norah - she isn't so little anymore!

She has just discovered her hands and loves to suck on her middle two fingers.  She puts herself to sleep every night sucking on them and she is sleeping really well.  Mommy & daddy get at least 7 hours each night (aren't they lucky?!) I just love the roll around her wrist!

She just melts all of us and we can't get enough of her!
