Family Time

The MIL is flying home this afternoon, so Jerry just left to drop her off at the airport. It was a good visit: It was fun to have Norah meet her grandma, and Grandma proved to be an excellent baby holder and cuddler. So, it was nice to have the extra pair of hands, and I got to enjoy a nice long nap on Saturday and I got to get out yesterday to treat myself to a pedicure.

But nice as it was to have her, 3 days is a good length of time for a visit, and it's nice to have the house back to ourselves and return to our normal routine. So, I have lots to catch up on, so I'll keep this short and leave you guys with a pic my MIL took of Jerry, Norah, Scooter and I. Norah's head is kinda cranked weird to the side, but other than that, it's a good pic of all of us.
