CA - 8

Waffles for breakfast!

Deborah volunteered to cook breakfast, and did a tasty job! :)

These nice guys cleaned up the leaves in Grammy's backyard


Aunt Catherine and Uncle Fred came down to see us! Here Mom, Dad, Beth, Erich, & Uncle Fred share a laugh.

It's such a treat to walk everywhere! We walked over to a restaurant for lunch :)

The big decision: what to order

A glowing mother and her darling baby

This picture has been hijacked by a grinning guy :)

We had a lovely time!

Love this picture!

Stephen shares secrets with Charlotte

They're so cute together!

More Upwords for Erich!

Charlotte looks on, aghast, at the Upwords game
"Oh, Mommy, I'm afraid that was a bad move!" ;)

Now her natural curiosity and buoyant spirits take over... ;)

CA - 9

Charlotte enjoys the very nice stroller given her by cousin Michael!

Enjoying the baby (I hope you aren't bored of baby pics by now! ;)


Reading is such a lovely past-time at Grammy's!

Unique pinecones


We went to an estate sale in Grammy's neighborhood, and saw lots of interesting stuff -- like this necklace!

Inspecting our purchases afterwards...


Stephen inspects a Porche


Walking home with our purchases

How delightful to have a home with these massive beauties always in sight!

A G.K. Chesterton tree
"...its many-fingered hands brushing the face of Heaven, like so many twisted brooms..."

My purchase from the estate sale (the necklace, not the silver salver -- it's Grammy's!)

Deborah found these treasures there :)

Oh, cutie! 
"Is anyone out there?"

Found out! ;)

Breakfast time at Grammy's!

Charlotte wishes she could eat real food, too. ;)



This photo can't help but make me smile!

We got to meet Grammy's part-time helper, Becki

Listening together

Enjoying her great-grandbaby

I really like this picture
