A sweet new blessing

We got a call last Wednesday night that my BIL and his wife were going to have their baby the following day. So the girls and I got early Thursday morning and made the 4 hour hike over there to be in Illinois in time to get to meet this sweet little peanut.
.

.
Her big sister is quite proud of her new baby and wanted to hold her constantly.
.

.
Both girls had there fair share of snuggles as well.
.

.

.
They even let grandma have a chance. :)
.

.
I am so happy that we were able to make that trip. We look forward to seeing her again real soon.
.
We decided to rent a ski boat yesterday after church and take the girls tubing. K's best friend came along which of course turned into a sleep over. All the girls had a ball being bounced around on that tube. I am always amazed at how fast they want to go and how long they can hold on. Can't imagine why they fell asleep so well. LOL
.
We are doing monograms over at the Emma's Paperie Blog this week. I decided this was the perfect opportunity to alter some school supplies. I made this notebook for my sweet K who loves to write. You can find a list of the supplies I used here.
.

.
Only two more days of freedom for my girls. It will be nice to get back into a routine but I am going to miss their giggles around here. Have a fabulous Monday everyone!

Hi there Lisa! How adorable that new little Miss Peanut is! Looks like your girls really enjoyed holding her. What precious times, indeed.
Love you altered notebook. Fell in love with it the instant I saw it on Peas this morning. I just adore that block design.
Hope the girls have a wonderful first day of school tomorrow. We've still got one more week. We go to 7th grade open house at Nik's new school tomorrow. Never seen it, so this should be exciting.
