What a weekend! I left on Thursday for Chicago and it was a great weekend. My flight was supposed to leave at 7:00 pm. EST but with the storm coming in I decided to call to see if I could get on a different flight, and luckily I got on the 1:29 p.m. EST flight and made it into Chicago at 2:30 p.m. CST. I was so happy to get there and see the girls!

Ava was so sweet. I walked in, put my arms out for a hug, and she came right to me! It was very sweet :)

This is Lila Olive. She was having some sleeping problems, but as long as I was holding her, she fell asleep right away. It surprised me that she is 9 lbs. 2 oz already, but really skinny.

This is my niece dog, Bella. She is an Anatolian Shepherd and all White. She is beautiful but a little crazy. She isn't like most anatolian's because she isn't as fierce and stuff.

Close up of her face. She is just such a beautiful dog.

Ava loves to eat, even if just a little something, she loves it! When I would eat my cereal in the morning, she would want bites of it.

We went to the beach on Saturday for about an hour. It was fun while we were there, but the girls started getting a little cranky. Ava had on her bathing suit and was ready to go swimming!

She is always giving stuff to everyone, but then she takes it back. It just makes me laugh. When she gets older, they will teach her to share.

I wanted to get some good pictures for Drew and Kristine to have delvoped and put on the wall going up the staircase in their house. This one I will turn to Black and White and then have it frame for them. Along with a few others I took.

Ava has a BMW car that she likes to ride in the driveway. I was puching her around the drivway, then she wanted to push me...

Lila is almost 8 weeks old and she is so alert. She has the biggest and most beautiful eyes I have ever seen :)

I still can't get over how much I love these little girls! I really feel like an aunt now and it feels great! I can't wait to see them again soon. I will need to plan another trip to Chicago as soon as I can!

In other news, I finished a hat for my brother and it fits him perfectly! It's a hat with a theme... GO IRISH! It's a Notre Dame hat because we are all big ND fans! I also think I will be signing up for a photography class from here to work on my skills and really get to know my camera better. I would take the intermediate class. We will see...

I will be back soon :)

I LOVE that hand-holding shot. You should enter that one in a contest. And I think Ava looks like you!
