so sweet

This morning Tom had to get up obscenely early for work and he couldn't find his wallet or his keys, so I got up along with them.  A couple of hours later I heard Jonah crying in his crib, but he stopped about a minute later so I finished cleaning the kitchen and then went upstairs.

When I got upstairs Harper was in Jonah's crib with him.  Jonah was sitting up and Harper was snuggled up to him and they were playing with some toys.  She told me that Jonah was crying and she wanted to snuggle with him so he would be happy.  So sweet.

A visitor!

A couple of weeks ago I get a text from my sister Kara asking if she could visit.  Yay!  We don't get a lot of visitors, and I know some of you have been in LA and not told me, so we were pretty excited.  Harper particularly loves visitors and she had a blast with Kara around.

And, in addition to Kara flying in, my sister Aubrie and her family were going to be at Disneyland this weekend too so we headed down there on Friday.  It was a gloomy weekend and I didn't want my camera to get rained on so forgive the camera phone photos.

When we got home from Disneyland I was pretty tired and I had a headache so I went to bed pretty early.  I got a phone call from my brother around 11 letting me know that he had just proposed to his girlfriend so I will be getting a new sister-in-law this summer!  I was so out of it from being asleep that when Chase said "I'm engaged," I said, "Who is this?"  I had no idea what was going on, but I am very excited.

On Saturday we hit up John O'Groats for breakfast.
Kara was kind enough to watch the kids in the middle of the day so Tom and I could go to the movies.  It is really weird to go somewhere without the kids in the middle of the day.

And then when it stopped raining we waited in line for some Sprinkles Cupcakes and then went shopping at the Beverly Center.
Harper was really fascinated with Kara's makeup.

On Saturday we went to Santa Monica so that Kara could get a run in and then went to lunch.  Kara even gave us haircuts on top of all of that!
 Kara we are so glad you visited us this weekend and you are welcome any time!

And, if all of that wasn't enough, my Mom called this weekend to see if my youngest sisters could visit us during spring break, so stay tuned for more posts about visiting sisters in a couple weeks :)

I am so grateful for the camera on my cell phone.  It isn't perfect, but without it I would miss out on photos like this:
