I took an unintentional break from blogging for a few weeks. In attempt to play ketchup these pictures are from the weekend before last... I know bad blogger! :)
Anyways...on with the pictures because I know that is all you really care about. Madeline's Papa came for a visit before he left for his annual Appalachian Trail trip. It is very obvious that we are booted to the curb and our little sweetie was the main attraction, but that is ok we wouldn't want it any other way! :) She enjoys the attention and likes seeing a face other than mine!
Papa came bearing gifts. Grammy couldn't make the trip, but she sent a book for Madeline. Thanks Grammy she loves the book. She had to talk him into reading it to her. Not really she has him wrapped around her little finger.
She even conned him into playing with her toys,
Saturday she was the center of attention for two more grandparents. This kid is really blessed to have so many grandparents and people in her life that lover her so much. Her great grandpa and great grandma drove down to see her sweet little face.
Enjoyed eating snacks and sat in grandma's lap.
Sunday we loaded up the car and headed to Pville to be with my family. I wish that it was for a enjoyable reason, but unfortunately there was a unexpected death in my dad's side of the family. It was nice visiting with aunts, uncles and cousins I rarely see, however I wish the circumstances were different. We did make the best of the trip and enjoyed a few days with my family. Of course Madeline was all about going for a ride on the "car" as she calls it.
My parent's dog always up for a ride as well. She even taught Asia to join in on the fun. Both of my parents took her for several rides on the golf cart, but I didn't manage to get a picture of her and my dad riding around. She had a lot of fun and I think I know what she is going to want for Christmas this year...hint hint! haha!
One of my parents' dogs had puppies about 3 weeks ago. The mom is very protective of the puppies, but we were able to get a few out and aren't they CUTE??!!??? Since we don't have enough animals or mouths to feed at the Casa de Phillips, Madeline will be picking out her favorite puppy in a few more weeks.
