pitter patter

Our little apartment came alive this weekend as we kept Mara Kate so Kane and Jana could have a romantic Valentine's Day. Okay, so that's a guise... we have been wanting to have her for a while, and it just happened to work out this weekend! Thanks to Tuie and Papa Dog for bringing her our way, and thanks to Jana for meeting us half way in Chattanooga.

We really had a sweet, comfortable time and enjoyed watching each other taking on "parenting" roles. Mara Kate was a gem, which is to be expected from her upbringing, of course. I am really proud of all three of us for the "new" things we did!

Now our apartment is much quieter, and I'm sure Kane and Jana are getting an ear-full as Mara Kate relays all that went on. Here are a few pictures from our time together.... take note of all the smiles! :)

It looks like you all had a really great time spoiling MK. Of course, now she thinks that's what goes on at your house all the time!

Eliz, I know she had a great time and I loved seeing the pictures, since I wasn't there to watch everything happen. She has been talking about it all this afternoon! Thanks also for making it possible for Kane and I to have some quality time together for Valentine's. I know you enjoyed her, but it was still a blessing to us!

We'll have to do it again! :)
