A great weekend!

This is one of the silhouettes that I did for my daughter and her husband of their children this year. I can show it to you now because she has seen it. My other girls haven't seen the ones I did of their kids yet. The three girls had made a small cake with a new cake making toy that Jenna got for her birthday. They were happily displaying it in the photo that I based this on. I played with the photo on my iphoto first and then added their legs, etc... and this is what I came up with in the end. As you see it is reversed.

We were surprised that our daughter who has the three girls and her family were able to come this past week. We celebrated all sorts of things, including a wedding (our niece), Riley's birthday, and Christmas.
Here are the reactions to some gifts. Jenna had told her mom that the only thing she wanted this year was this special doctor's kit. She wants to be a doctor when she grows up.

Riley has an American Girl Bitty Baby. We gave her a stroller for her doll. This was her reaction when she opened it.

And Kellen, our little artist, received an artist's easel which she was very excited about. I didn't get her reaction on film however. This photo is actually her reaction to a gift that we gave Riley for her birthday. Such a sweet big sister to be so happy for little sis!

We're all back to our respective homes now, with dirty laundry to do and put away. The wedding was beautiful!!! This is our second niece to get married in Nashville recently. One in October and the other this past Saturday. Our niece was absolutely giddy with excitement. She was a beautiful bride. Our little girls had so much fun dancing at the reception!!!

Love seeing their excited, happy expressions. Great job on the sillouettes Sp? Sorry. Too tired to look up the spelling or go back to the post to check.

I'm glad you got to visit with your daughter and her family when you did not expect to. By their expressions, you picked out the perfect gifts!
