A Wild, Wonderful Day....



The kids all came today...not only to see Bryden and his progress, but also because our next door neighbor has a niece who is a new photographer and wanted to take their pictures. Kate is here for just a month starting a business while her husband is away in the Samoas. She offered to take pics for her new portfolio and we were thrilled, not only to have the new baby taken, but also to have one of the three grandchildren together. When Kate heard that we had a new baby, she wanted to photograph him soon, while he still sleeps all the time. Above is a "sneak peek" of one of photos she took of Bryden. Below is Mike & Lori with Bailey...Mike holding Bryden.Lori & Bryden

Tim and Cooper also looking him over...

Joni & nephew...

Kate Strine (with camera) posing the kids...she is wonderful with them!!

Cooper wasn't all that thrilled with picture taking...but he eventually came around.

so, in the meantime,...we got shots of Bailey & Bryden.


Cooper joins the fun...



Playing with the sheep from the manger scene...


Bailey gives Aunt Chelsea a hug...


and lifts a stool that my grandmother needlepointed announcing"heavy"!!!


Mike reading the inscription that my grandmother wrote after making the stool. It took her 5 years to complete! She said she would never make another one and she never did. It is a well used treasure to me. It's just the right size for the little kids to sit on.


The guys are so funny and we laugh the whole time they are here...it's nice to watch them interact with each others children too. I heard them all making a lot of noise ...coming from our bedroom...they were having a

pillowfight!





All too soon it was time for them all to go home, but...


then Bob & Becca came to see Bryden...


and friend Rosemary


and Holly and Jeremy



This one is so sweet of Bryden and "Mimi"


....and finally, this is the result of all our patience,...a picture of all three together!!! Yeah!!!! (I'm hoping Kate got more than I did...)



Some clips of the day...bye, I am now taking a nap!

Pillow fights are the best!! I love the pictures and can't wait to see more! The preview picture is such a tease. ;-)

HOWWWW in the world does Chelsea look soooo good!? I seriously need some sort of proof she just delivered a baby. A birth certificate or something along those lines...
