More Pictures

Here is the second installment of photos from the past month.  I realize these posts are rather Mary Grace heavy, but I just can't resist. :)  

Snoozing on the couch

Reading with Grandpa Evans 

Snoozing again.  Believe it or not, she is awake a good bit of the time!

My sweet Mary Grace...3 weeks old

Napping beside me while I blog.

Joseph loves crafts!  Notice the red marker on his nose. :) 

Everyone has to have a turn brushing Mary Grace's hair.  

All ready for church...

...wearing a dress that Grandma Evans (my mom) made for Abigail when she was a newborn.  Mary Grace won't get to meet Grandma until Heaven, but I love that she gets to wear something made by her!

Mary Grace was baptized on September 28.  The christening gown she wore is another heirloom made by Grandma Evans that her three big sisters wore for the same occasion.  It was an extra special day because Grandma and Grandpa in Kansas were here!

Sleeping in Mama's arms on the deck.

Adam's parents came for a week-long visit a couple weeks ago.  We took a short road trip to visit this museum.  It was really interesting.  Joshua loves Civil War history, so he was particularly excited about it.  

The museum has a great hands-on area for children complete with dress-ups.  

Esther loves to dress up.

We got to see my brother, Mark, briefly at my Grandmother's house.  He was in the area for some training, but just recently returned home from a year-long deployment.  I hadn't seen him since Mom's funeral nearly 2 1/2 years ago, so it was great to catch up!

Uncle Mark and Peter goofing off. :)

Esther and Mary Grace with Grandpa in Kansas

Grandma in Kansas and Joseph enjoying a book at the library.

Checking out some Civil War artifacts at the museum.

Grandma and Grandpa with 8 (Mary Grace was sleeping on me in the Moby Wrap) of their 19 grandchildren!

Mary Grace enjoying some Papa time after her siblings went to bed.

Noah picked some apples. :) 

Apple picking in the mountains of North Georgia. 

Abigail and Noah came up with an easier way to carry their bags of apples.

Poor baby had a nasty eye infection.

Looking much better after day 2 of antibiotic drops.  

Loaded up and headed to the park to play some tennis!

I caught a smile on camera!  She was actually awake, but she squeezed her eyes shut right when I snapped the picture.  

All nine of our goobers watching Joshua, Abigail, and Esther's writing lesson.

All of the children love to hold Mary Grace, but Hannah asks more than anyone else.  She is thrilled to have a baby sister!

I'm behind on blogging and short on time, so I'll just cover the past month in two posts full of pictures.  There will be lots of photos (in no particular order) and a few words. :)

Joseph is a fashion savvy 4 year-old.  He loves clothes and enjoys picking his outfit every day.  He was so excited about getting "new" (from the attic) fall clothes out this past week!

Mary Grace dressed and ready for her first Sunday worship service.

James being cute and trying to fall out of his high chair. :) 

Sweet baby girl...3 weeks old

Mary Grace getting her first non-sponge bath.  She like it!

Drying off in the monogrammed towel that my sister-in-law's mother sent to her.  I love that it has her name on it!

Baby feet

Mama and Mary Grace (2 weeks old)

Noah watching Mary Grace yawn

Almost full!  We have one seat left.

Joshua and Grandpa Evans

Sitting (and climbing) outside under the huge magnolia at Great Grandma's house.  

Great Grandma (my grandmother) and one of her 40-something (or is it 50-something?) great grandchildren.  Mary Grace was 2 weeks old here and she isn't even the youngest!

We got hit with a stomach bug a couple weeks ago.  James (not sick) felt sorry for Abigail (sick) and climbed up to snuggle her.  

Abigail and Hannah doing their morning Bible reading outside.

Snuggles with a big sister

Esther writing poetry during a Sunday afternoon rest time.  

Joseph is getting so big!

Wild hair on the slide. :)
