Visit with Uncle Glenn

Today we had the opportunity to have lunch with Dale's Uncle Glenn. He lives in Ohio but was in CA for business. This was his first time seeing Aiden in person and of course Aiden found him very intriguing and wanted to entertain the entire table. Our time with Uncle Glenn was great but was WAY too short. I wish we could go and visit more often. The last time we saw him was June of 2007 for Grandpa Howse's 100th birthday party in Indiana. So much has changed since then. We found out on that trip that we were expecting a baby and have since added Aiden to our family. And, shortly after that trip Aunt Peggy got very ill with what was found to be Leukemia and sadly Aunt Peggy is no longer with us. She is missed very much by us and has always held a special place in my heart since the first time I met her. She had always treated my kiddos like they were her own grandchildren and they love and miss her very much. Thank you Uncle Glenn for wonderful conversation at lunch today!!! You are loved very much by this family.
Going in for the slobbery kiss.All the kiddos with Uncle Glenn.

Their cousin, Candace, was able to join us for lunch as well. The kids LOVE playing with Candace and she does such an awesome job with them.
Onto a totally different topic: Aiden has started pulling himself onto his knees beside the couch and then waving to show me what he has just accomplished. I don't think I am ready for him to be pulling himself up and getting ready to walk. Why do they have to hurry up and grow up so fast?

  1. Aiden is getting so BIG! He looks great, I love, love, love the fuzzy hair all the time, Avery's did that, it was awful on her ;) Not cute and curly like her sisters. I think of you all often. When do you think we could get together? :o) I'm in need of some sun.
