Grandma and Grandpa day. This means of course that they got gifts. The girls got these beautiful dolls and the boys got stuffed animals (amongst other things).
Grandpa, Grandma, and Auntie Ruthie came by to spend a few hours in the afternoon with us. It was so nice to see them. I was kind of scared that we weren't going to get a chance to see them at all so that meant a lot.
I love them.

Auntie Ruthie and Lily.
Matthew was so excited about this puzzle. All the little locks on it just fascinate him. He would let out this ear piercing shriek every time one of the other kids tried to take a turn with it.

Seeing them together for the first time was so wonderful.
Jake loved sitting on Grandpa's lap.
We spent the rest of the evening getting ready for the huge rice and curry extravaganza for Ruthie's birthday, complete with lemon pies.
Love you Ruthie! Happy birthday!
A quick cuddle before getting back to the crazy.
