Ethan Meets the Family

These are the pictures from Rachel of our first day back here in Northern Ireland.

This is Elijah on our way home from the airport. He was happy to see his Auntie Rachel... just look at the big smile he's giving her!

Nana Freda with her boys.

Ethan meets his Great Granny.
Elijah looking thrilled to be back in Granda's arms.
He really was happy and has already been out to see the cows with his Granda Charlie.
This time its Ethan who looks thrilled to be in his Auntie's arms.

Ethan meeting Granda Charlie.It's been fun to introduce Ethan to our family here and friends at church.

I really like this picture... doesn't the always beautiful Rachel also look gorgeous in sepia tone?
She's coming in a few minuets to kidnap Elijah for a while today.
Yay! I can get a shower... and maybe a nap! Ohh the possibilities!
But Ethan needs a bath and then there's the laundry and vacuuming...
