Three Weeks Old!

Cute Feet

Little Anne Marie has made it to three weeks with flying colors. She's still doing wonderfully, as are Andy and I. She even made her first road trip. I know - Andy and I must be crazy, but we couldn't resist surprising everyone and taking her to Kingsport this weekend. Family from both sides were in town from all corners of the country (as well as from Mexico!) and she's now met all of her great-grandparents, something that meant so much to Andy and I. Sorry to the many people we didn't get to see while we were in town but time was limited as was energy on her part as well as mine. We decided to limit it to family - which kept us quite busy enough I assure you!!

She started her weekend off with a horrendous drive to Kingsport - not because of her, but because of the awful rain. It took us 6.5 hours (pre-baby time usually 4.5 hours) and most of the extra time was weather/traffic related. She then met cousins Adam and Sally and Sally's beau, Grant.

The next morning was spent leisurely after we saw Grandmomma and Papa Bill (true grandparent names are still in limbo) off as they went to Knoxville for the UT game. Early afternoon we traveled to Bristol to visit with the Hill Family during the annual golf tournament. The Adams crew then headed back to Kingsport to hang out and watch the game (boo). Sarah Jane entertained and charmed as Anne Marie enchanted us throughout the evening.

Sunday morning was Anne Marie's introduction to the Ralston crew - Jeannie, Robb, Gus and Jeb; Jim, Susan, and Jacob; Judi, Anna and Fiona all were in Kingsport for a long weekend. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast and a great visit. We then had a short visit with Grandmother Peet before starting our rounds of goodbyes as we got back on the road. The trip back was much better since we had no rain until we got into the misty rain near Atlanta and Anne Marie was quite the trooper.

We are now very much looking forward to some time here at home. Hopefully we'll see much more friends and family around the Thanksgiving holidays.

I know I've been remiss in not posting pictures or blogs for several days - so to make up for it, please check out these picture sets and enjoy.
