A walk in the park
Aaron's/Our Aunt Karla made a picture collage after we spent Christmas Day with them in OK. Poor Livy stayed up late on Christmas Eve, rode in the car for over three hours on Christmas morning and arrived at her great-grandmother's cozy house filled with 13 family members (9 she was meeting for the first time) right about nap time. She was kinda quiet and serious, but she handled it well and had a blast meeting her older second cousins. She found her second wind somewhere between the leaf pile and the Golden Retriever at the park where Aunt Karla took these shots. I love the collage she made and wanted to post it (even though I can't figure out how to post it right-side-up). More pics from our WONDERFUL December/Christmas celebrations may or may not be coming. :o)
P.S. Here is a list of fun Olivia moments from today:
1. When we made a trip to the girl's room at the mall today, she told me as I was taking my turn to 'go,' "Mama, work hard."
2. She stopped me at the curb before walking across the street and told me, "Mama, look both ways." Where would I be without her looking out for me?
3. While riding in the car, she was quiet for 5-10 minutes, then she dryly said, "This is fun."
4. At 10:19 pm, she knocked on her door from the inside. I opened it and found her light on, and she was wearing an adorable summer outfit from her off-season drawer, complete with big girl 'pannies.' She emphatically told me, "Mama! I had a GOOD nap!"
