Margaret Meets Great Grandma Phyllis

After two painless flights to Portland (both airports had playgrounds!) we arrived to rainy Pacific Northwest weather. No bother, Mike and I both love the beauty that the rain produces. Wednesday morning we hurried over to my Grandma's new place and surprised her. Above, Margaret is excited to meet her Great grandmother!

As many of you may know, Margaret is not comfortable with just anyone holding her. In fact, she usually cries if someone she doesn't know (aka someone besides mama) holds her. But she knew there was something special about Great Grandma Phyllis


This picture is truly special because this is not like Margaret at all. She would rather fall asleep in her car seat or alone on a floor than fall asleep with someone holding her (which did make the flight here a bit more difficult because she was a "lap child." That was not the case with Great Grandma Phyllis. She snuggled right up. Margaret knows that she is Great Grandma's namesake.

There are many other people that Margaret is meeting for the first time and I will try to post some of those photos as well.

Dear Baby Margaret,

I hope someday you will grow up for James and Isaac and then you can play with them and Isaac can be your prince. Or James.

Love, Allison.

I had no idea you were coming to town. It would be great to see you if you have time. I understand things are crazy when you visit family, but Dave, the boys and I live in Beaverton so if you have some time, just send me an e-mail (ealindenmuth@hotmail.com) and we can try to connect. I would love to meet both Henry and Margaret.

God Bless,
Elizabeth
