Daddy Caleb grilled chicken for supper with Grandpa and Grandma, Ana, Leah and Ethan.






















This morning Greta is sporting her lovely new flowery umbrella and galoshes. I sang a bit of "Singing in the Rain" for her, and now she goes around the house dancing with her umbrella and singing her translation of it, "In a rain is a song, in a rain is a song!" Today is appropriately rainy, though we are not actually out in it. :)

oh, forevermore sweet!

I must say, my girl loves her painted toes too! That helped with potty training, actually.

And umbrellas and rainboots make the best gifts - pretty and yet so very very practical for getting fresh air.

Thanks for sharing the lovely party pictures.

Oh, Happiest of Happy Birthays to you, sweet Greta! Even though we've not met you yet, we love you through pictures and thrill to each and every update we get about you. You're toes are simply scrumptuous in their sparkly polish and were I there with you, I would be nibbling them madly. I hope Mama will smother you with kisses and hugs from all your down south aunties.
