I got the best surprise ever when my sister, Janne, and Hannah showed up all the way from Arizona to meet us for dinner at McAlister's (and hang out with us for a week)! Apparently they, along with Grandma (who was already in town visiting) and Jacob, orchestrated this plan months ago-- and they were all able to keep the secret!! The first thing the girls did when we got back to the house was change into matching jammies.
Ellie absolutely ADORES Hannah and follows her around like a second mother. When they sit next to each other, Ellie tries to help hold Hannah up even though Hannah can easily do it on her own and is as big as Ellie (despite their 363 day age difference).
The littlest girls had so much fun playing football in the backyard.
Run, Hannah, Run!!!
Trying to get a good picture with such cooperation from these two proved difficult.
Ellie loves "her" Hannah

Ellie is always on the go!
More matching jammies-- and cooperation (or lack thereof)!
On their last day in town, we drove down to South Carolina to see the Peachoid- a peach shaped water tower.
Silly girls at the Peachoid
Such a smiley girl :)
The little girls and Grandma
Before taking Grandma, Auntie Janne and Hannah to the airport, we went to Toast for breakfast and walked around the streets of Davidson.
