We had the whole Heffernan clan in town this weekend! Brian, Maureen, and Katherine ran the San Jose Half Marathon Sunday and the rest of the crowd went as spectators to cheer them on. Claire and Tom had all 5 of their children in Menlo Oaks and for the first time all 4 grandbabies together in one place! It was a great opportunity for lots of pictures (not that I don't take any opportunity for lots of pictures:) Jan and John had a full house with everyroom occupied by Heffernans! We had great meals, outtings and time hanging out.
All the kids back at our house to hang out before going to the Johnet's for dinner. Maureen's friend from SLC and her two boys came out with her (they drove with all four kids from Utah!) and our neighbors Owen and Emma came by to play too. The kids have "Francie suckers" from See's Candy that say "It's a Girl!"
Francie and I were hanging out on the couch Friday morning and Heff had just walked in from a run, he left the front door open as the sun had come out after some rain and all of the sudden we heard a huge cracking sound. I thought it was thunder but couldn't figure out why it was sunny outside... Heff quickly realized it was a tree falling next to our house and GRABBED my by the shoulders with Francie in my arms, he pulled us under the door frame. Luckily the tree fell in our neighbors yard and missed their house by inches. We had the police out in no time and the city came to take care of the tree. It was pretty scary!
Priness Sophie (Jannie's "old" baby) has been feeling neglected since Baby Francie arrived and Jannie is over at HER house all the time... she found a new friend on Ann's bed and we found her snuggled up with it last night. This wasn't set up!
