Suki shows David her drawing.

Admiring my new lantern -- thanks, Granny! :)

Opening their gifts from Maggie -- Rudy the monkey for Grace, Emma the giraffe for Suki, and Ellie the elephant for Kate. They -loved- them!

An animal tea party!

A bunny, a child and a butterfly played lots of games today.

Then we made some fun crafts together.

Grace started off playing tic tac toe with me but wasn't happy about following the rules. She found Gorilla to be much more amenable to her game suggestions.

After naps, Nate, Alison, Maggie and Joshua were entertained by the girls for a little while before the littlest ones were sent off to bed and the grown ups had some dinner and lots of fun conversation.

Taking turns kissing David.

I haven't seen a picture that so reminded me of baby Grace in a very long time.

Maggie drinks her tea while Kate enjoys her cup of water.

Joshua and Lesley came over to visit today and help eat our leftovers.
They brought this cake for the girls to decorate, too -- what a big hit! They did such a good job frosting it.

Putting the sprinkles on top. The cake was meant to represent a flaming tire, a nod to a Thanksgiving we shared with Joshua long ago.

We had such a fantastic, relaxing day today -- Joshua packed Kate in his bag to take home with him.
