The Bills Have Landed!

The Bills Family made the 9 hour drive (11 hour trip) up to Oregon to visit us on Saturday. Natalie climbed out of the car and into the arms of her BFF Geneva. The family made it up in great shape--they even enjoyed themselves along the way! We are so happy to have them here; we have so much fun planned for the next few days.
 
After Geneva's greeting, Avery and Natalie shared some love. It's so nutty to see Piper trying to keep up with the big girls now... very different than when these three were together in Sactown on a regular basis. Natalie outsizes Avery by about 6 inches but only 2 pounds. Not much has changed!

Well I guess one thing has definitely changed--Baby Norah is so big and so sweet. She is such a trouper! I'm amazed every time I look into that beautiful face and see brilliant blue eyes. Natalie has all of Staci's coloring and Rusty's face; Norah has more of Rusty's coloring (still Staci's black hair) and Staci's face. Great combos.

Obviously, we have been enjoying some amazing Talent Shows with three little ones gracing the "stage." Singing, dancing, gymnastics, and running have topped the show programs. "Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls... please welcome to the stage..."

"Yo yo yo... I'm Pipes--and I'm not the smallest kid around here anymore." These little p.j. bandits are at odds when it comes to how much "loving" Norah can handle from Avery. I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before but Avery is a "Babyholic." She would like to kiss, cuddle, hug, hold, and love a baby as much as possible. Poor Norah.

More to come!
