Looks like you guys had a wonderful weekend-and the weather this weekend was gorgeous as well!

Love you jacket! I have one nearly like it-was going to wear it today but opted for my black jacket with the hood instead.

Jill said...

OH Mommy!! So nice to be back here again... life has taken me away from blogging lately... though I have kept up via my reader - what fun clothes you showcased last week!!

Beautiful photos - gorgeous family. I hadn't seen Kash around since her trip back to Chicago, so it's nice to know you got to spend some time with her.

Hope all is well on your end. :)

What a lovely family!

JCK said...

I remember when you wrote of having your sister on web cam for the holiday - Thanksgiving, Christmas? And how you missed her. I think I'm remembering that right... So glad you are getting special time in with your family.

Alex and Ashley said...

Cute pictures, super cute family!
I just can't help but notice everybody is extremely blonde. Do you prefer your hair dark? Do you lighten up in the summer?

The Daily Stroll said...

Great pictures! Looks like you had a wonderful weekend with your family!

Rachel said...

Great pictures! I love the one where Jay is getting off the bus. That moment of excitement when the kids first see their grandparents is so priceless.

I love your (I think) new shorter do!

Scary Mommy said...

Your whole family is just gorgeous!!! Awesome photos. :)

Krystyn said...

Oh, they are too excited.

And, it id quite obvious where you get your good looks. Your family is beautiful!

And, I love your hair...can I call it a bob?

The lighting in that room is perfect, too.

Tracey said...

Glad your family could come and visit! The weather looks a lot nicer than it was in Chicago this weekend! :(

Rhea said...

I love seeing pictures of you and your family. You cut your hair! It looks cute. I love you guys, you're adorable and REAL. :o)

Jessica said...

OHmommy, those pictures are gorgeous! I never did find a camera at Circuit City but I just need one!

Amy @ Milk Breath and Margaritas said...

What a pretty family! Love your hair!

Kelly said...

Awesome pictures (what happened to your bangs?). That's great that they all visited at once. Is your sister back in the States for now or is she headed back to Africa?

Hailey said...

Beautiful family!

Blessings From Above said...

Great pictures. Your Dad looks so happy to see Jay...very precious!

Enjoy your visit with your sister.

Karen MEG said...

What amazing shots of your beautiful family! I was wondering if your sister is back again too,or if going back to Africa.

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Pictures of me are always rare. And a GOOD picture of me is like gold. The only time anyone (i.e. my husband) ever thinks to take a picture - let alone one that includes me - I'm usually in stained clothes and two days late for a hair wash. This would explain that my only profile picture will have it's 2nd birthday this July. Thank god for a family wedding - otherwise my last good picture would be pre-babies.

Rachel said...

Love Love Love all those pictures!!! Love them!!!!!

What a wonderful time. You are too cute in your boots.

(hugs to you and your family)

Tee aka The Diva's Thoughts said...

You're so good at capturing candid moments. That one of your dad excitedly raising his hands is particularly wonderful.

the mama bird diaries said...

Sweet, gorgeous pictures.

Katie said...

Makes my heart sing to hear the words Babcia and Dziadek - I miss mine terribly (although we called my grandma "Busia" more often then Babcia.

(love your mom's shoes - Dansko's??)

Mama Smurf said...

Wow! You look JUST like your mom! Both very beautiful women!

amanda said...

Elaine A. said...

I just adore that first shot - it's like something out of a magazine, the family greeting the little guy off the bus - so sweet!

And nice to see you too! ; )
