For Eric's mom's birthday, we hauled in the grandkids to The Picture People for some fun photos. The 19 year-old college student was less-than-thrilled to be out of bed pre-noon on a Saturday, at that. The 15 year-old spritely pom pom one with all the practice of keeping a perfectly poised frozen grin did just that. The 10 year-old boy; well, he was a hard one to wrangle. Doesn't want to smile or sit still or do anything on command. He definitely marches to the beat of his own drum. Greta? Well, she was just so stinkin' thrilled to be in public and out of the house.
These are Greta's cousins from Eric's side of the family. She sees them more than my side of the family, just because they live in the same town as we do. It's so cute seeing them gush over her. She just eats it up!
My family is a bit more sprawled out, location-wise. Greta has gotten to spend time with one of her cousins, who lives locally. She has met her Florida cousin twice, but Greta has not yet met her Chicago cousins, and I know she is saving lots of kisses and grins and giggles for them!
