I got to spend lots of time with the "parents" (Mom and Aunt Tig.)
And the obligatory grandma and baby-to-be picture:
Since these pictures are all a month old, (baby) Shirley is now much more obvious. I had to go pants shopping again this week. Tomorrow, I plan to go shirt shopping, as I'm down to three long sleeved shirts that still fit. (And I refuse to wear scrub tops out in public if I'm not working.)
Brian's sister Meegan quit smoking 25 hours before this picture was taken!
(My somewhat manic expression is explained by four plane flights in five days.)
We're slowly but surely getting the house set up. The living room looks quite nice right now.
We've still got many boxes of books to unpack, but the two large bookcases really helped make the place feel more like home.
And unlike any of our previous residences, we have a BACK YARD! (This is the view from our bedroom window.) I was so excited I went out and bought books on gardening.
I'd love to make it look like the neighbor's yard. Hopefully the plants will feel the "peer pressure" and decide they want to live.
