Well, it's a good thing my mom is here, otherwise there would only be a handful of pictures!! =) Mom and Darlene arrived Saturday evening. The girls were so ecstatic to see them, and have been having lots of fun since!
Sunday morning, Mom took some pics of the kiddos before we headed off to meeting.

They kept occupied while waiting for the news of the baby
While they were busy at home, we were 'busy' at the hospital, welcoming our precious Gwendalyn Hope, arriving at 1045am, weighing 7 lbs, 10 oz.
After the news that Gwendalyn had arrived, they got some gifts wrapped and ready to bring in.
Mom brought everyone in later in the afternoon.

Wednesday finally came, and during the morning, everyone got ready for our return.
Mom and Darlene made a delicious lunch of chicken enchiladas for us - it was so yummy!
