Visiting the Grandkids

There was no school on Monday, January 21 (MLK Day), so on Sunday we went up to Kim's to visit there. Then on Monday, Kim and Donny joined us as we went out to Beth's for the afternoon. What fun it was to have the babies together!!
The only thing that would have made it better was if Aaron could have been there, too (along with his mama and daddy of course! We miss them all!)

Jack was quick to come to Donny's side and greet him.
Here they are checking each other out.

Here's Grandpa -- his first time to see little Katie, who was 11 days old.

Sweet Baby Katie!

Oh, this Grandma loved being with the little ones! I could have stayed a lot longer, but we had to go home so Grandpa could be at his job the next day....

Just before we left, Jack pulled Grandpa into the TV room to watch "Cars" with him. Looks like all 3 of the 'boys' are enjoying the show!

We look forward to this summer when Danny and Betsy will be here with Aaron. It will be fun to have all 4 of our grandchildren together!

Katherine Pearl Twist

Our little Katie was born to Beth and Matt Twist at 11:45 AM on January 10. Grandma Whittaker got to go take care of Katie's "big brother", Jack while the big event was taking place. Then when Katie was only 2 hours old, she received her first visitor -- brother Jack. After the initial meeting, Grandma got to join the family, hold her precious granddaughter, and take some pictures. Following are some pictures of that day and the next day when Katie came home.

About 1/2 hour before Katie arrived home, Grandma let Jack see a slide show of pictures from his visit the day before. He really enjoyed the pictures. And when they arrived home, he was excited to see Mama and Daddy and again was fascinated with his baby sister.

Sweet Baby Katie!!
