Gramma's been here

We had such a fun week last week when Gramma came to visit, and now today is the typical "blah" Monday where we're trying to get back in the swing of things, and I'm trying to get used to having to actually take care of the children by myself. I'm always so spoiled when she's here. I only took a couple pictures of our time together, but this was one of my favorites - Kathryn playing like a dog, and Gramma taking her for a walk:


Then this one: Kathryn and Gramma (and Pheobe) playing Guess Who, only they are playing it as a matching game. Gramma also taught her to play Memory, and to say she loves it would be an understatement. She would really be happy if I would play it with her every waking moment.

Our "big outing" for the week was meeting Brad for lunch then heading over to Zionsville to shop in the fancy shops and just enjoy the beautiful day. We were over at Mom's at different times during the week helping out and fixing meals. She is doing so well since her surgery, and seems to be on the right track to recovery. She has a dr's appointment tomorrow and they are hoping to take her cast off. She still won't be able to put any weight on it for about a month, but she has learned how to get around fairly well.

Here's my sweet little baby girl sucking on her finger...

I used to love playing "Guess Who" - how clever to make it a memory game!

I got all of the "supplies" to make the layout from shabbyprincess.com. I downloaded a bunch and just threw it together. It takes a lot of time but I'm pretty OCD about it :)

I'll try to post the pictures tomorrow!

I'm glad you had fun with Rosie! How could you not? I can't believe how much Maddie has changed since the 4th of July! She is a little doll, just like the other two sweetie pies.
