Isn't she a beauty? She looks exactly like her big sister Lily did four years ago! Yes, Grandma got lots of snuggle time with both her little Minnesota sweethearts!
As all babies do, Ella made her presence known, but only when she was hungry! Here she is with her beautiful mother!
Big sister Lily is a wonderful help. We can tell she adores little Ella! Lily was being a bit silly this weekend and put this face on instead of her smiley face whenever the camera was pointed her way!
Yes, I let Grandpa have some snuggle time too!
And Aunt Carol would have protested mightily if she hadn't gotten her turn in too!
Aunt Joanne and Jan let us have all the snuggle time, so we had to settle for a picture of the two of them together!
Daddy spent all of his time running around taking care of all of us and playing with Lily.
We had a wonderful weekend, but we're very tired from all the driving. I took a quick peek at some of the blogs I follow, and posted a few comments. I feel like such a slacker when I look at all the wonderful posts, but I got a little sidetracked over the past couple of weeks. Carol asked me to make receiving blankets for a baby shower a week ago. I decided that Lily and Ella needed sister blankets. Before I knew it, two weeks had gone by with very little tatting done! I'll have to get back in to the swing of things this week. For now, I'm all done in, so I'm heading off to bed. You know what they say... early to bed, early to rise... zzzzz...
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
