The times when Adelyn and Gracen come over to stay for awhile are always so fun and special! And much to our delight, it happens quite often, and of course, their parents stay sometimes, too. (And not to leave you both out Ryan and Ashley :), we love those times with you both as well!)
Anyway, this past week, the girls were over twice, and I took my camera out for a bit each time, and took a number of photos. It was nice as the first day they came over it was warm and sunny so we could spend some time outdoors which Adelyn especially loved.

One of the many faces of Adelyn! She was having so much fun running around!
Playing with Aunt Sarah
(It's so funny, though, as she can't say my name so she calls both Leah and I "eah" (short for Leah) . . . it is so cute!)
Gracen with her Grandma

Getting hugs from Adelyn . . . she is such a sweet and very much-loved little girl!

Today while we had the girls, Ryan and Ashley were at a large neighborhood garage sale, and they came back with some treasures, one of which was this tricycle which Adelyn loved!

While the rocking horse wasn't one of their finds (Mom got it at a second hand store awhile back), Gracen had a lot of fun playing on it with her Mommy!
Adelyn and Gracen are both growing up so fast! Adelyn is talking quite a bit now (albeit there is a lot we still can't understand), and she loves to have conversations with us. She is so sweet with her 'yes', 'pease', 'tank you', 'you okay?' that she says as well as her many hugs! Gracen is standing a bit on her own now . . . an achievement just accomplished for the first time this week! And her grins are almost always on her face as she's such a cheerful little thing. Both Adelyn and Gracen are such precious blessings and bring so much joy to our lives!
