It is Sunday night.
Another weekend has come and gone.
This was not your average weekend..it was an Emma weekend!
A little confused?
Let me explain by showing this photo:
My brother Scott and sister-in-law Kim visited from Chesapeake, VA with their little seven month bundle named Emma. You may remember seeing this doll here. Scott finally took his Professional Engineering Exam after months of studying and can now breathe a little easier :) They decided to come for a nice, relaxing visit filled with no studying, only smiles..smiles at sweet Emma. Some of you may be familiar with my sister-in-law Kim from her blog Little Rays of Sunshine. She always includes pictures of Emma and recipes for your sweet tooth!
We all had an amazing weekend together. The weather was just perfect with the sun shining and ranging between mid to upper 60's. Friday night was spent learning about the little girl Emma is becoming and eating some yummy food--Italian style! I made chicken parm sandwiches and pasta for everyone to enjoy and to my surprise, we actually had leftovers!! For those of you who know my husband and brother this.is.shocking.
Saturday started off with pancakes and strawberries and of course, coffee! We spent the afternoon soaking up some rays while eating all of the tasty treats at the Chocolate Festival! Oh yes, you heard me right--Chocolate EVERYWHERE, my dream come true. The festival had booths set up of local businesses giving away free stuff as well as face painting, pudding finger painting, and firetruck tours for the kids. We all stuck to the Chocolate tasting :)
We ate lunch at Subway and had plenty to choose from for dessert thanks to the festival. After the festival, Adam and I took Scott, Kim, and Emma to our new house for a tour :) It was so fun showing them around and seeing how excited they were for us, family is simply the best.
Sunday morning we enjoyed biscuits, scrambled eggs with cheese, and turkey sausages! --and more coffee :) We all had a lazy day just sitting on the couch talking, laughing, and sharing stories. It is so nice catching up with family, I really love my family. When Emma woke up she stole all of the attention and I didn't want to give her up. Saying goodbye is never fun but knowing we will see her again soon is always exciting.
|This is the cause for all of those smiles.|
|More smiles at Subway.|
|Somebody was not ready for bed, just look at that smile!|
|I have a picture of me feeding her every visit :) I wish I could say please excuse the no makeup and messy hair but this is how I look most of the time!|
Love my little niece so much--only wish my other nieces and nephews could visit more often..Minnesota why are you so far away?
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend like we did..I'd love to know if anyone else had specials visit from friends or family! :)
