Just minutes old - meeting mommy
Sunday, September 27, 2009
Gemma would run ahead of Gianna, so Gianna would "chase" her. Here is Gemma cheering her on. The little girl actually got the kite to fly.

Gianna and Baby Abe. He doesn't really trust her. She tends to be a little too touchy-feely!
Enjoying cake and ice cream, all by herself!
My apologies to - Grandpa, Nona, Bamma, Titi, Abe, Chris, Larry and Vonne for not getting any photos of you with the birthday girl! Thank you for sharing this special day with us!!!

Gemma came up with a wonderful solution to the no pantyhose problem...

Today was a fun day for all of us.
Gemma went to the renaissance festival with mom and Edmee. Mom decided that Gemma needed a costume for the event - and here is Gemma in all of her maiden glory. Doesn't she look adorable!
While Gemma was enjoying her day, Spencer and I had a "date" at Legoland. A proper date always includes a meal, so we had lunch at......McDonalds. (I know, what a shock!)
And we can't forget about Gianna - she was having a fun afternoon with Evelyn. They spent 2 hours having lunch, playing at the playground and going for a walk. I don't know who was more tired when they returned! This photo of Gianna is after her time with Evelyn, a bath and a nap. I forgot to take one of she and Evelyn together!!!
You may recognize this little girl - it's Gemma, post-renaissance fair. Apparently the original costume was a bit warm for the 80' day we had. So, bamma decided to buy ANOTHER costume at the festival!!!!! Gemma also got a new headpiece, her hair braided, her face painted, a ring and two necklaces. Mom and Edmee said she really enjoyed herself (I would too if other people were financing my entertainment!) and they are looking forward to taking her again next year.

Apparently in their little imagination scenario, it was winter - and Gianna allowed Gemma to dress her accordingly. The girls spent at least 20 minutes playing and talking (really Gemma talking and Gianna following along.)

Here are Baby Abe and grandma. He had just woken from a nap.
This was the highlight of the park for the kids - the train! Gianna would just sit in it and say "choo-choo, choo-choo" over and over again. It was pretty cute.
On a side note - both Gemma and Spencer were at the party, I just did a very poor job of capturing them while enjoying the park. :( I'll make up for it in the next post!
While watching the kids warm-up, I got a little nervous when I saw Spencer in the goals. He wasn't going be stopping any goals like that! Quikly his attitude changed once the whistle was blown signaling the beginning of the game. Spencer isn't a very aggressive child, but boy, when the ball was near him - he was running!
After a few minutes on the field and an attempted goal, he and a teammate sat on the sidelines resting and watching the game go on. At this age, the kids play two 20 minutes halves with a 10 minute half-time.

Here are the kids before leaving for school - notice the head next to Gemma? That's Gianna - I couldn't get a decent picture of all three together, so this will have to do.
