Our family headed 'home' for the weekend (but alas, farmers don't get Memorial Day off...) and we had such a fabulous time visiting with everyone. I must say, a very BIG highlight was getting to meet my new little niece Brooklinne. The pictures I have seen just couldn't capture the actual size of her. Pictures never do. SO I was flabbergasted to see the little Rosebud curl up into a little snowball and practically disappear. I was even more shocked to hold her. I guess I shouldn't be too shocked. She is two pounds less at a week old than BOTH of my children at birth!!!
I wanted to take a few (ha!) pictures of my sister holding her new baby and I made it my personal goal to take a few pictures that help to capture her SIZE a bit. I still don't do the wee one justice. But atleast I tried.
I have tons of pictures of the weekend away, but knew my sister would be wanting to see some of these pictures (*Elizabeth, there are twice as many as this...and many turned out nice so you can expect a letter in the mail soon filled with pictures!) so I post them now. The rest will be saved for some OTHER day (s).
In the meantime...the week that lies ahead is going to be a BUSY one. There is LOTS on my plate...including a yard/bake sale that I am putting on Friday and Saturday-all proceeds go to my camera fund! :-) Funny what you are willing to part with in order to purchase a dream.
This weekend I will post my own personal yard sale tips and tricks, and the results of my efforts. We shall see...in the meantime-I am a sorting FREAK! Have a Happy Memorial Day!
