The Cribbies are home, the Cribbies are home!!

You will all be delighted to hear my whining is over.  At least for the next 9 months.  Jenni, Dave, and the girls returned home late Tuesday night--to our great joy!!  It's so wonderful having the 3 little ones back in our lives and not hundreds of miles away.  We had an emotional reunion Wednesday when Jenni brought the kids over to spend the day, and we also spent part of the day with them yesterday at their house while Jenni started the massive unpacking process.  3 months may not seem like a long time, but with kids as young as Zoey, Ruby, and Maggie, a lot of changes take place in 3 months.  They 2 older ones are tall, brown, smart, and funny.  At 7 months Maggie is a cuddly little doll with a tooth and the ability to sit by herself.  Well, here.....see for yourselves!!
Wednesday at our house the 3 older cousins were able to spend some quality time together.  Leo came over for the morning and lunch before heading home for rest time.  L to r: Ruby (2 1/2), Zoey (4 1/2), Leo (almost 3)
 After rest time we had some pool time.
 I love Ruby's sun-kissed pink cheeks!
 Zoey is quite the fish and loves to swim underwater.
 Maggie is just cute, chunky, and fair.
 On Thursday Papa and I were at the girls' house for a while to play.  Ruby had fun exploring the top bunk (with supervision).
 While Ruby is the family clown, Zoey is the very grown-up firstborn.  She can be very funny, too, but she takes her responsibility as oldest very seriously and is very motherly.
 And Mags is just her sweet, precious, pink self!
  Oh, yeah!!  Grammy and Papa are super glad these angels are home to stay!!
