Jan 7-8, 2010 - Ella spends a wintery night at the Gramps'

While dad heads to Des Moines, Ella packs her bag (with a little help from mom)

and gets ready to head over to Lolly and Pop's place.

Ella and Carey enjoy the fire.

Ella likes it!
She's facing the fire here.

Pop gets to enjoy Ella for a while

and play.

Lolly gets bottle-time the next morning,

while Jill watches the birds from the bay window.
We don't get robins like this at home.

We get cardinals, though.

Our little songbird is sacked out.

One last hug and the girls head home to meet dad, returning from Iowa.
