A Family-Filled Weekend

We had a great Mother's Day weekend, filled with visits from a lot of family.
My parents had been in Spain and Italy visiting my sister, Kara for the past couple of weeks. They had a fun, busy trip, and got back to DFW on Friday. They came back with plenty of goodies for Anna Lee, and couldn't wait to give them to her. Kara, thank you for this ladybugs shirt! It is so cute!

My parents got Anna Lee this matching purse and hat set. Anna Lee really wanted to put the hat on my mom in the airport. How could she say no?

Anna Lee decked out in all her souvenirs. Looks like she's ready for her own trip to Italy!

Opening Mother's Day gifts Friday night- with plenty of help from Anna Lee

Oh the fun Anna Lee has with Aunt Kasey! Saturday morning, Kasey was taking her on these blanket rides through the house. Anna Lee was loving it!

Taking a stroll with Granddaddy

I love three generation pictures...especially at Mother's Day.

Studying up before dinner

On Sunday, Jim's parents (GranDee and Pops) came to play and have dinner with us. Anna Lee loved getting to be with them! We spent some time playing outside and Anna Lee got plenty of rides in the wagon they gave her for her birthday. It is her favorite!

It is such a joy to be the mommy to this sweet girl.
Lots of kisses, hugs, and laughter with her around.
