We have had a busy week.  Marie drove over Sunday night after work and arrived for a quick visit early Monday morning.  The kids were so glad to see her.  The highlight of the trip for the kids was probably all the dancing to the eclectic music selection on her ipod.  The highlight of the trip for her was hearing Emma say "Aunt Marie"!!=)  It really is so nice having her come see all I have to do is convince her to move here.
Tuesday, Marie went with me for Emma's 18 mos. appointment.  She weighed 22.2 lbs. (25%) and was 32" (50%).  Everything else was totally on track.  As you can see from this picture she really isn't 18 months old...she is a sixteen year old princess stuck in a little body!=)

Wednesday my dear friend, Keli, and her two beautiful children, Tyler and Mia, came for a visit.  Keli was my neighbor when we lived in Phoenix but she moved to Chicago.  Lucky for us her parents still live in Arizona so we get to see them on occasion.  The kids played well together and we got the chance to catch up a little bit in between refereeing the boys.=)  The funniest part of the day was trying to have the boys nap together.  They laid in bed and giggled and carried on until we just gave up on them and let them come out of the room to play some more.  Winnie was quite a hit for the kids, she gave Tyler and Mia the same sad pathetic "please go away from me" look that she gives my children.  We sure wished they lived closer so that we could get together more often.  Here are a few pictures from our day.

Tonight I took Tyler to the library for Corduroy's birthday party--he is 40 years old!  The kids got to hear stories, make a paper Corduroy, and eat cupcakes.
