We've had company for 3 weeks, now. Anisa's boyfriend, Aaron has been here from WI, then my mom, sis and niece came to visit for 5ish days. The girls left yesterday, Aaron leaves today. It is always so much fun having company, but it's nice to put the house back together, too. :)
I wanted to post this first, because it was the best day EVER~ we were in DC and a very sweet, tame squirrel came to visit us and even got on my lap. I was THRILLED. Tragically, later we watched a hawk swoop down and take another squirrel for lunch.
Since we've had company, we've been showing them around where we now live. My mom has been to DC several times, but we had to show Wendy and Kelsey and Aaron stuff. Here are some pictures of the last few weeks.

Sara had a dance competition this last weekend. They took 1st place, again, but we knew they would. The mix of kids really works. They get along, their coaches are incredible, it's just a really great experience for the dancers (and the parents). Here are some pics from the competition.
Today, Anisa and Aaron will get the last activities in and he will fly home this evening. I'm sure this evening at our house will not be a happy place, but we have had a really good time showing Aaron around. It's gonna be quiet around here, but with Christmas just next week, that will be ok. :)
