4th of July
Michael's department at work had a 4th of July picnic, so we were able to meet many of his new co-workers.

Gramma Jane and Grampa and Uncle Brian came to visit over the 4th of July weekend. We very much appreciated having extra hands around to play with the girls, but we were too busy unpacking boxes to take any pictures.
Aunt Lisa stopped by on her way from Tennessee to Texas
Living just 10 minutes away from Lolo and Lola is great, as they love to take time for our girls.

Gabi has missed all of her Atlanta playgroup friends. She pretends to talk to them on her play phone, and she invites them over to swim or play. Gabi helped me write a couple thank-you notes and enjoyed it so much that she has continued to write letters to all her friends. I spell her friend's name, and she writes it at the top, then signs her name at the bottom. She was ecstatic when she got a letter from Kira in the mail! We had to write Kira back immediately. When I mailed some official forms for Michael, Gabi asked to put the stamps on. I told her I was going to put these two on, and she replied, "But the mail is for Gabi to do!" She loves to lick envelopes, place stamps, and carry letters to the mailbox.

We love the color we finally selected for our new kitchen. Isn't this kitchen fantastic?!?
