Kevin, Chelsey and family
Wednesday evening this week, we were able to have some long-time friends over for dinner. Scott and Kevin have been good friends since Scott moved to NC, and they were roomies in college as well. Kevin's family was in Utah this week for a family reunion, and they were able to stop by for a few hours. We loved being able to visit with them again, and to have our kids meet. The kids loved each other! Elisabeth and Charles were so excited to play dress-up with Jillian. Annabelle loved baby Peter; well mostly she liked having someone around closer to her size, that she could touch and manhandle, like her older brother does to her. I made sure to put myself in between them, once I saw how much she 'loved' Peter, so no harm would be done. Mostly, she just wanted to touch his face. I suppose this is what happens to children who have older siblings who are not very old themselves: their siblings begin to roughhouse and mess with them at an early age, therefore teaching them to do the same. The good thing is that she has learned some self-defense skills which have helped her out many times. I've gotten off track now. Anyways, we had a great time together and we hope that more friends and family will visit in the future!
