One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Back from Michigan

I am a bit behind on posting -- so the Halloween post is coming later...

Evelyn and I had a great time in Michigan. She was such a good little traveler! I was a bit worried about flying alone with her -- but we didn't have any problems at all. Even when our flight was delayed and we had to deal with a 4 hour lay-over in Chicago, she was fine. I am very thankful to have such a good little trooper! She travels better so far than a lot of adults do!

While in Michigan, Evelyn enjoyed her first graham cracker. My dad has been talking about feeding her a graham cracker for a few months now. He was so excited! If I remember correctly, when Kara and the girls came over in July, he gave them their first graham cracker, too. He loves to watch little babies eat!

Here is a random picture of Evelyn in a winter hat. I don't remember why it got put on her in the first place -- but she seemed to like it. Also, my parent's house is always a little cold -- so I think it kept her head warm, too!
Here is a picture from the "photo shoot" that my mom and I did of Evelyn. We took her around the front yard and tried to get pictures of her in front of trees, some pumpkins, etc.
Lastly, here is a picture of Evelyn with her Uncle Gary and his girlfriend Emily. They actually did a little bit of baby-sitting for me one night. When I walked in the door, Emily was just finishing up changing a really dirty diaper. It was perfect timing!! :)

Great photos. I think Evelyn is looking more and more like you. I wish we could have gotten together while you were here. I really miss you!!!
