Surprise Visitors

Though I'd planned to fit a bit of writing into this busy week, I wasn't expecting to finish much more than a post or two because I knew my mom would be visiting from Wisconsin.  As it turned out, it wasn't just my mom who came to visit - on her way through Illinois, my mom stopped at my sister's house and picked up my sister, my niece (two-year-old Lily), and my nephew (three-month-old Carter) and brought them along with her.

I was COMPLETELY surprised, and thrilled to see all of them.  But the addition of two adults, a potty-training two-year-old, and an infant has dramatically altered the dynamic of our household and our original plans for the week - basically, life is a lot more chaotic, a lot louder, and a lot less conducive for writing.

So in place of hundreds of words about kids or food or fitness or volunteering or Wisconsin or Texas, here are a few pics of what we've been up to since Monday.  We've been busy!
This kid gives out smiles like I give out candy on Halloween.
Giving Mom's winter boots a try.
Bedtime books with Daddy/Uncle Tom.
Seriously.  So many smiles.
Muffins with Mom at Hallie's preschool.  
Lucky Hallie brought three moms (Mom, Grandma, and
Aunt Sara) and two cousins to enjoy muffins with her.
Lunch with Will.
Enjoy the rest of your week, friends!
