Grandma and Pops Visit

Grandma and Pops came to visit again this weekend. We were actually pretty lax with the picture taking however got at least a back shot of them at the market.
Once we heard they were heading out we immediately began planning a weekend of house projects. Last spring we did phase one of the garden and had a decent crop this summer despite the cool temperatures. This past week we ended up paving around the raised bends. It looks great! Dad says they are coming in January next time as inside house projects are not quite as labor intensive. Hmmm... I'm thinking maybe an entire basement needs painting.

Dinner under the Sukkah

Jeff built our first Sukkah this year. It is really a great tradition but not sure the weather will hold for many outside meals.

A Crazy Day at the Beach

The weather was nuts today. Pouring rain on a run, sun during nap time and then some late afternoon winds which brought out all the windsurfers. Fun to watch. Elizabeth and Jeff made their way out on a very shaky dock. Some large waves swept up and they made a quick exit.

Elizabeth was sporting her sunglasses with mom as we walked on water.
This is her latest pose she likes to strike. She puts those hands on her hips and gives you 'the look'.

Lovely New Year.. Eventually

We had a great day together as a family. Well mostly great. Elizabeth tends to get overwhelmed when things are a bit chaotic which was the case for a portion of the kids service. She came home exhausted and LOST it.
There was just no consoling her.
Eventually she went down for a nap and woke up as our lovely child again. Two is such an interesting age. I suppose they all are.

Elizabeth and I spent Labor Day with Maeve. We have already made two trips to the park and right now they are both tucked in for a lovely little nap. I'm spending a brief moment posting these photos and then I plan to join them in their slumber. I'm not sure that I'll give Maeve back when her mom comes to get her after work. Isn't she sooo snugly!! She has these awesome dimples that you could just get lost in.

In the van on the way home the other day Elizabeth said "Momma I'm happy". My life is good.
