See if you can find: two little girls born a week apart- one asleep, one faking it; a sad little girl who wanted to hold her cousin, Cougar fans "rising and shouting," Little (Great) Grandma, the man in the mirror, four generations, the hard to find traditional birthday Jiffy brownie mix brownies (the Jiffy frosting mix proved too elusive even for us), a 7' tall baby, a toy log gallows, a "monkey on my back," the redheaded birthday girl (hint, it's not Kiree), and the cutest little Mardi Gras Jedi girl you've ever seen.

The girls loved playing monster with Grandpa. I practically had to physically restrain the girls from waking up Grandpa and Grandma first thing each morning.
One day while Jaide was in school, the rest of us all took a walk along the Patapsco river. We saw some wildlife and crossed some wiggly bridges.
We played games and Bob's Mom helped me turn two curtain panels into four. It was sewing school for Meg! I'm excited to do more sewing.
They headed up to Boston to visit their other granddaughter the day we took these pictures. A few hours later we headed to the airport to fly to Utah to see the other Grandma.

We got to go on a hayride (and it even went through a stream!), go through a corn maze, and pick our own pumpkin and ear of popping corn.
There weren't a lot of animals there, but there was a very friendly cow. Jaide's teacher told the children before we left school not to pick a pumpkin bigger than their head. Do you know why? she asked them. Because who is going to carry your pumpkin? Each and everyone turned and looked at the adults. Some even pointed. No, you are. the teacher said. I still ended up carrying four pumpkins by the end of the day.
