Awwwwwwwww - ad infinitum .......

I was doing some picking up last night and found this on the kitchen table...
I remember that Andrew (age 5) had asked me if he could use the new stickers I'd put in the toy drawer and stick them on some paper.
I said yes, and got some printer paper out.

And then everyone left... and I finally saw what he did.
Do you see it?  It's a world map with the animals where they live!
(I widened the margins on this blog, so I could make the picture extra-large.)

I'm so impressed!

(Update:  I was just told that it was Caroline who did animals in the continents.... STILL, I'M IMPRESSED!!  (Caroline will just turn 7 this Saturday!)  (Oh yes, I'm impressed, Caroline!!!!)
---------
On a different note: earlier, after we had the glorious Christmas breakfast, that the guys cooked (Sam, Will, Ryan and John), Caroline played for us on the piano!  (I need somebody (Will?) to send me a picture of that.)

You may have seen on Facebook where I made this my cover picture...
That's Mother with her four great-grandchildren: Caroline holding Baby Nell, and Andrew and Anna.... who got some beautiful boots (the only thing she wanted!) ...

Here's Laura talking to the threesome in the living room...
You can tell that Anna seriously likes to color!

Ah, but the star of the show was Nell ....
.... because it was her very first Christmas!

Here's Nell with her Uncle Ryan and Aunt Laura....

And here she is with Elizabeth....
Awwwww.

I've noticed that 'awwww' is a word now.
I've seen it on Facebook, and I've used it many times myself.
Each time I put a different number of 'w's in it.
(It depends on how much 'awwww' I'm feeling as to the number.)

Really that above picture (and the others) ought to be...
'Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.'

Oh yeah.

Fun times!

Actually, Caroline was the one who was putting the animals in the correct continents, just so you know. She was asking everyone about where the different animals belonged :)

My favorite picture is how enamored with Laura the kiddos are - even that little ninja turtle in the back ground! ;) Nell looks beautifully festive in her little dress! Too sweet!!!!
