Babysitting Emma

On Saturday, we had the opportunity to spend the day with Emma. She has so much personality now. Here are some pictures from her visit on Saturday and other photographs of her "on the move" at our home in January. She is still enjoying the hand knit hats that I made her.

Emma Loves Cats!

Here is one of Emma's scrapbook pages I made for December showing one of the stuffed animal cats that we gave her. She loves them!

Christmas 2008

I have been so busy since Christmas that I am just now getting around to posting some of our Christmas pictures. Both Dan and I took the week before Christmas and the week after as vacation this year. Emily and Robert were home during the same time frame and we had a wonderful opportunity to visit and relax. Molly was supposed to be off work the majority of this same time window -- but, one of her largest clients had important due dates and she had to work some of the days.

Here is my favorite picture of Emily at Christmas. Her baby boy, Bobby, is due mid-March and she looks great!

We attempted to scale back this Christmas, as we all have so much. The babies, Emma and Bobby, were our primary focus. Here is a shot of Emma trying out the ride-on truck toy we bought for Bobby.

No one should worry about Emma. This year she was more into the opening of the presents and the wrapping paper and boxes than the presents! I wrapped all of Emma's presents in pink and Bobby's in blue this year to make it easy to pass them out. Her is Emma with some of her presents. One of Bobby's presents was his very first hand knit "Nana" designed hat. I can't wait to see him in it.
I treated myself to an upgrade of my Photoshop software and started printing out a scrapbook for Emma. My hopes are to create at least one page per month for all of my grandchildren. Here some of the October 2008 pages:
