A Visit From Nana

I'm just now getting my act together to post some pictures from our wonderful visit with my mom. She comes every July, all the way from California to visit her favorite granddaughter (and only granddaughter, but don't tell Laura that!) We all had a wonderful time while she was here, and ate way too much food. Moxie especially enjoyed Nana's visit since she got lots of long walks out of the deal. In fact, she pouted for about 2 days after my mom left-and I'm not making that up. So not only did I have Laura coming down from the high of being spoiled by Nana, but I had a sad dog too. Not to mention the Army Man and I were sad that our babysitter, I mean visitor, had left. I really hate that first day after a visitor departs-the house seems so quiet and empty.

We didn't take too many pictures (I guess we were having too much fun!) but I do have some pictures from our trip up to Raleigh to meet up with her parents. And of course, we have lots of wonderful memories too!

I hope to be back soon with several posts covering our empty (bird) nest, Laura starting pre-K, the Army Man growing old, and some new crafts I've done.

Sorry I've been AWOL.

These are just great Claire!! It's so nice that your mom is able to come and visit.

And, on a side note...I'm glad that I'm not the only mom whose daughter makes goofy faces for the camera!

I love your photos! What a fun visit! Laura and Moxie are adorable! Her dress is so pretty!

Ah ha! I was about to call you to shame you into posting about Nana's visit! Nice pictures. It will be interesting to repose the Moxie picture in a few years. She won't be able to reach Laura's face anymore!
