A Tale of Two Cousins…

I have received a couple of emails saying that “SURELY, those nephews you have been waiting for have been born already!”

Yes they have!

They were born about a week apart, while we were dealing with the 4th of July holidaiy, and cabin closing time!

They are both about a month old now, and such sweet babies!


Raiger was born to my sister Mary and her Hubby Kelly.

My babies were both bald little billiard balls – Mary’s kids….look at that hair!


This is Will at one month old!

He was born to my Sister-in-law Anna and my brother David.  Don’t you just love it when babies sleep with their arms straight above their heads?

All is well in the baby department and we are so grateful.  I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get that way to love on them both ---but I love that they are wrapped in quilts from Aunt Bonnie!

This morning – it’s raining.  Of course!  I have lots of loading and unloading to do ---both of my stuff, and of Mickey’s stuff when I pick her up at the airport just before noon.

There will be last minute errand running before we head downtown to Collaboration Celebration – I’m saving the shower for after we unload it all – what’s the point of showering to go out into the august rain and humidity and get all sticky? Will have to shower again anyway before this evening’s event rolls out!

Stay tuned for pictures ---we are going to be having a blast!
