My Special Guests!!

Who is that pretty girl with Emmie? Why it's Miss Anna , from Banana Pants!!! Yes! I have finally met a bloggy friend! Lori and her family were in my neck of the woods and stopped by. We had a great afternoon together. Miss Anna is the most delightful dumpling ever!!! I'm even more in love! She is so gentle and sweet. And what a hugger!!! Unlike Miss Em who made a, how should I put it... not so great first impression. Seems the overwhelming urge to get her little hands into a brand new head of blond hair got the best of her today. Miss Em does have a thing for hair and Anna's locks were just too much for her. She went in with the two fisted grab at least four times. She made Anna CRY!!!! Not nice EMMIE!

But there were moments when Em behaved and they shared a book.

And Peter was so lucky. He scored the first hug from Anna. And a double cuddle.

A little walking with Sophia.

Bella and Paige, having lunch on the deck. Paige is a laugh a minute. What a little firecracker. An absolute delight.Charlie busied himself with Andrew's trains. So sweet.

Andrew was beside himself today. He was so excited to meet Anna.

Anna catching up on some reading.

The moms. Lori is even more beautiful in person.

All the kids!

Thanks for visiting us Lori! Hope you all had a good time. Our small home was bursting at the seams and it was wonderful. Peter commented later that hugs from Anna felt just like hugs from Em. I felt the same way, when Anna wrapped her arms around me.

Our visit wasn't complete. We were missing Kelly and Landon. Both were sick and had to cancel! That was such a huge disappointment. Kelly we really missed you and Landon. We will have to make up for it very soon!!! Feel better!!

oh how fun! O', a lil jealous, I have yet to meet anyone from blogland. The pictures look great. I think Emmie and Marissa would get along great. Marissa has a thing for grabbing locks of hair in a death grip that could make an adult cry uncle! ;-)

Now it is definitely my turn to be jealous!!! Two of my most favorite girls together without us!!! I am sure that Kelly was extremely bummed to have missed it and Landon would have been in heaven with the girls. So glad you guys got to meet....but I am still jealous!!!

Lacey said...

Oh too cute! Someday we'll meet! Do you ever get over to New York? We want to go to New York City someday! We are kind of hoping for a layover in New York or Boston when we go to Ukraine. We may be able to sneak in a few meetings then!

love that you guys were able to meet up but i am so sad for kelly and landon to miss out on the fun! adorable pictures - sorry to hear that emmie was all about anna's hair... you can't tell from the pictures that anything happened :) what a fun visit!

Kelly said...

UGH!! As happy as I was reading this post and seeing all these pics, I can't help but feel SO BUMMED that we missed out on such a GREAT opportunity. Timing could not have been worse:( Landon would have been in heaven surrounded by 2 cute little chicky-mamas:) Looks like you had a wonderful time, and I couldn't be happier for all of you!!

Stephanie, you & I only live about 25 minutes away from one another, so we MUST make sure we meet before the summer is over!! I am just so sad that we missed the opportunity to meet Lori, Anna & family as they were passing through:( Maybe next time!

Rochelle said...

Looks like a fantastic visit. I would be lying if I didn't say we were jealous, oh we dream to meet Em & Anna both someday!
Sorry that Kelly & Landon couldn't make it.
Those girls and their mamas are ALL beautiful!

How fun. Looks like they had a good time together. Lindsey has a thing for hair too. I have to keep mine pulled back so she doesn't pull at it or try and eat it.
