The Sweetest Visitor

One of the highlights of my life....

Getting to snuggle with my absolutely precious niece, Caroline!

Laura and Caroline came in to town last weekend for a visit and we had the pleasure of having them over for dinner on Saturday night.

I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I was to introduce Caroline to Kev and to show her around our home.  Especially since I had told her all about it ( in great detail - what else do you talk to a baby about?) when I went to visit her in Syracuse.

I am hoping that as she grows up she will look forward to coming to our house for a visit.... just like her Daddy used to do.  ( at least I think he did!- we can be quite crazy!  )

She can even sleep in the same bunk beds that he grew up in.  But only on the bottom, of course, until she is 18.  Top bunks can be dangerous for kids! 

This sweet girl brought so much joy and laughter and happiness in to our home!  I just loved every single second of it!

As for Kev.... she officially stole a piece of his heart.  In fact, we think that this is the first baby that he has held since 1963.  Or since our niece, Ashlynn, was born - and she is 16! 

Caroline just loved him! 

We served our signature meal - grilled pizzas....  along with crazy bread and snickerdoodle cupcakes per Laura's request.  

It was so awesome getting to catch up with Laura and spend time with Caroline.  SO AWESOME!

And I'm already counting the days until their return.
