21: Aunt Carly and cousin Marissa came for a visit to meet Emma for the first time. Gracie was soooo excited to see them, and they fell in love with Emma. April 2009
23: Grandpa and I threw a Welcome to the Family party for Emma. I know they say the second baby shouldn't have a shower, but I think every baby deserves to be celebrated. We planned the party for the same day as our Family Easter gathering. Everyone came to our house in the morning....We served a light breakfast, I made a scrapbook guest book where everyone had their picture taken with Emma, we played games, and everyone went home with a picture of Emma. When the party was over, we all headed next door to Lori's house where we had lunch, swam in the pool, and had an Easter egg hunt for the kids. Everyone had a great time and it was a wonderful way to introduce Emma to the family. April

42: August 2009 Lisa and Lou wanted to have family photos done, so Lisa's friend Anna offered to take them to the park in St. Cloud and do a photo shoot. Eric and I went with them to help with the kids. We were there for about an hour and Anna did a spectacular job. Lou, Grace, Lisa, and Emma!
43: Thank goodness Anna did the family shots and Emma first. After about 30 minutes, Emma had enough and went to sleep for the rest of the time. It gave Mommy and Daddy a chance to play on the playground with Gracie.
