Here's my Dad showing off his hat, complete with hair!
To add to the fun, Uncle Timmy came back home to see the Grandparents! Bella was in heaven!
Tuesday morning we had breakfast and then they left, on their way to Florida and sunnier skies! Then later in the afternoon, my Mom and Dad arrived from Vermont. They had gotten snowed in for a day or so, having gotten more than 24 inches of the white stuff. So they finally were able to make it in and we had a nice visit with them. Bella and Nana had fun playing with all of Bella's new toys.
Everyone had a chance to meet Shawn, so that was nice too. Then it was on to birthdays!
First up was Michelle. Friday the 31st, we all had the day off so we took it easy getting up, didn't rush to get dressed or anything. It was nice. Finally, Michelle opened her presents and loved everything-especially her cowgirl boots! Later in the evening Shawn and Aiden joined us and we all went out for dinner at a Japanese hibachi restaurant. Mmmmm! Good food. Then on home for ice cream cake and happy birthday.

Michelle & Shawn were going to keep the kids at our house until Bella went to bed and then go back to Shawn's house and put Aiden to bed, but the kids had such a good time playing together and were so well behaved that they just stayed at the house. Shawn and Aiden wound up leaving at 12:45 and left with the promise that if the kids got a good night sleep, Shawn could bring Aiden back to play again the next day! It was too cute! When Saturday arrived and Bella woke up her first question of the day was ' When is Aiden coming over?'. We heard that until Aiden actually arrived. At dinner that evening they announced that they were buddies who played well together and had fun together. Aiden said 'That's because we love each other!' Kids, gotta love them!
