The girls met their sister last night via the virtual world

Hurray for Skype!
Not sure where the place mat fits into this. I think she was just so excited she had to hold on to something.

Elora explaining to Cami about their little sister.
This was such a sweet moment I will not forget.

We are having a crazy good time here at home. 

"Wait Grandma Honey, I want you to take a picture after I get her dressed!"
Then I forgot to come back, :(

I am a itchy Grandma. As soon as I got my grandgirls to sleep last night I went googling away about eye eczema. I am going through a major flare up right now that started a few days ago. The only way to control the itching is if I medicate...and that makes me very sleepy. My Dr told me again today, "No make up. No lotion." So I do look lovely.

I would have just hidden away at home yesterday but wild horses couldn't keep me away from seeing Miss Violet. Thankfully her focus is probably not the best yet. Unlike her sister Elora who told me last night as I was standing in the kitchen, "Grandma Honey, you DO NOT look good." I love that girl, honesty and all.

What a precious moment! We're sure you're having fun with the girls there. Nothing like kids for truth telling. Remind me when we're "in person" to tell you about what my granddaughters opined about me.

Love that little Violet Nicole. Just the right size and sweetness.

Love, Dad and Susan

How sweet! I remember when I had Josey, I was more excited for Hannah to meet her sister than anything else.

That Skype thing is cool. I am thinking about getting one for Daniel.

Ha!ha! Elora does it again!

Kris said...

Gotta love Skype! Those are some priceless pictures and both big sisters look so happy!

Rebecca said...

For some reason, this post made me cry. I just thought that picture of Cami snuggled up next to Elora was so precious!

What a special moment for the girls meeting their new little sister. It will be even better when they get to meet her in person! And Elora does seem to have a way with being totally honest :-)

Congratulations to everyone! These are such wonderful times, and I love the photo of Elora and Cami. And yes, to Skype is a great thing.


Amanda said...

Congratulations, she's beautiful!! How many grandiose does this make now? :)

Heidi Garvin said...

Congratulations! VIolet is so beautiful. I am sure both Elora and Cami will be wonderful big sisters to her.
Have you talked to my mom about your eye eczema yet? She developed some a few years back and they discovered she was allergic to a preservative that is in most make ups. Now that she knows that, she can wear certain make ups that do not have the preservative (which are unfortunately limited) and is itch free!

Grandma Honey said...

Heidi~~~ I'm so glad you mentioned this because now suddenly I do remember your Mom talking about her allergy to makeup! I will talk to her when she gets home to see what brand she is on now. Thank you Heidi!

This was so sweet! I loved seeing the sisters together, and viewing their newest sister!
And isn't Skype amazing? We used it when we were away so Jayden could 'visit' with his Mommy.

So sorry about the eczema! Some of my children suffer with flare-ups and so does my grandson Jayden.
Katie used to get it around her eyes all the time, and the doctor said it was due to allergies. I did notice it was worse in the Spring.
And Elora sounds like Jayden!
