Catching Up

After the family reunion, Pops, Nana, and Nana's granddaughter Calisto came and stayed with us.  We had a couple of relaxing days, hanging around and playing together.  Cali is such a good girl and was so nice to Ellie.  They played together a lot, and wherever Cali went, Ellie was sure to follow.
Thursday night we hosted a dinner, and Amy, Jon, Teri, Gwen, Amber, Bobi, Lyssa, and Adam came.  Ellie was so tired, but Greg wanted to play with her, so he kept her up for a while.  She kept on crawling over to him, putting her head down on him and resting for a minute, before playing some more.
Friday morning, Dad, Pat, and Cali left to go back to Minnesota.  Ellie and I had withdrawals for a while, but after E had a fantastic nap, we headed out to visit Tanya, Andrew, and Emily.  Ellie did better this time and did not seem as jealous.  Andrew was really nice and played well with Ellie, sharing his toys, and teaching her how to climb the stairs.  Ellie went up and down a few times - it was really exciting!
Saturday was Greg's birthday, and we had a few people over for dinner.  Kelly & Leesa and Merrill & Joanna are hilarious and really fed off of each other.  And Tammy just kept it real for us all.
Tonight Ellie and I headed out to Bobi's house for a farewell dinner to Amber (who is going back to her mom's after summer visitation, and then heading with her dance company to New York for a dance convention).  Amy had the great idea to try the grandkids picture again, and I think it turned out better this time.  Not as funny (because Ellie is not screaming), but better.
