The holidays just seem to keep stretching on as we’ve had more great company this past week. Steve’s sister, Kaile, and their mom came up for some post-Christmas visiting and a great time has been had by all, hence there’s been no time for blogging since I’ve been too busy living real life (a novel concept).
Here are some of the photos that Kaile took this week:
Jolie is getting so big! Almost four months old already. It seems like just yesterday I was a grumpy beluga, a week overdue, stuffing my face with chocolate and whining about how fat I was. Now she’s here and she’s just so lovely and it was all worth it. I’d hate to know that chocolate went to waste. Her sweetness must have come from my dedicated indulgences.
We all went to the community swimming pool (this was Avelyn’s first time back since the dreaded “let’s scream as soon as I touch the water and keep screaming until I am removed from the premises” incident when she was nine months old) and it was such fun. Avelyn was a little tentative at first (all those repressed memories resurfacing, I suppose) but after a few moments was splashing and sliding and didn’t want to leave.
There has been more snow falling in recent days but the temperatures have been milder so we were able to get out and enjoy the white stuff.
The fun had to stop some time, I guess.
Happy New Year to you!
