practically perfect in every way
 My sister-in-law was a true labor goddess, and my brother was wonderful.  I feel so blessed to have this new little being in my life!  I can't wait for the kids to meet her this weekend.  I'm sure she is going to be in lots of future posts!  I've been knitting and sewing for her like crazy!

Greg and I are off tomorrow evening to get the kiddos, I can't wait!  It's been way to quiet around here without those little monkeys to keep me busy.  I'm looking forward to some posts about our fun weekend in Vermont celebrating kiddos and Greg's birthday!
