Our dear friend Catherine from Canada (of Catherine's Chatter) came to visit and we are all beside ourselves with excitement. She got in late last night and the girls were still awake (combo of a weird 4-hour nap and a big fruity smoothie thing they drank late at night) so they got to come back downstairs and say hello. There was much squealing, some of it was even from the girls. Ro and Ree are upstairs alone with Cafrin (as they call her) right now and who knows what they're doing. I'm taking advantage of these few quiet minutes to post some pictures and then I'll hightail it upstairs to rescue her. Wheeeee, Cafrin's here and we got back out of bed at 10 o'clock to say hi!!!: First Cafrin had to meet all their friends: Then she got real little girlie hugs (hardly anything better in this world if you ask me): Then she got the dubious honor of meeting Orange Bucket (Ree's little stuffed duck). Gotta give Cafrin bonus points, she didn't even tease Ree about the name: The girls couldn't wait to show Cafrin their Oriental Trading Company catalog. Yes, apparently this was of dire importance and just couldn't wait until morning. Ree was so excited she was jumping up and down: The girls helped Cafrin unpack the "fancy hotel minibar" they assembled for her. They put in m'n'm chapstick (it's kind of a rank chocolate flavor), yellow kleenex, pringles, water, coffee-covered macadamia nuts, chocolate altoids, and some other stuff I can't remember): Cafrin got a little chocolate brown outfit for Hannah (from me) and her very own pink bucket (from the girls -- I think they noticed gifts being given and thought they should give her something.): In honor of the visit, my mom made a pan of apricot dream bars and dropped it off (still warm!) last night. We hit it pretty hard last night, but we've still got enough left to keep us all smiling: Oops, just saw one of the girls tear downstairs and head outside wearing her snowboots and the pink bucket on her head. I'd better run.
