Janie has been meeting her share of new friends and family slowly but surely!
My Dad's brother Uncle Dan and Aunt Nettie were in town for a conference and came to our house with an adorable little dress, hat and fancy sandals for Janie. They live in Spokane and have really cute grandkids of their own who we don't get to see often enough!
Emma, Owen and Chrissie came to play and brought dinner one night- man we miss our neighbors!! Emma is still Francie's idol and Owen is such a big kid now, he was three when they moved in next to our old house.
it was really funny, he wanted to wait until his sister got back to take a picture of all the kids and told me to take my girls first. When I said "Maisie look at the camera" and she of course ignored me, he jumped in to hold her head up towards the camera and tried to hide behind her.
and besides the point of this post but Francie is REALLY into The Berenstain Bears books right now. The Frimel Family passed on their very large collection of 49 books and she is obsessed with them (partly because they came from cool kids Kelly, Will and JP) and partly because she loves the stories and lessons - especially to spout them back to her sisters. I didn't know the author's son continued writing the books and they even had a third kid, Baby Honey Bear who stays a baby a la Maggie Simpson- there are some serious topics in the end of the series too! Thanks Frimels :)
