Olivia opening her gifts from the Markey crowd of cousins/aunts/uncles...great grandma/grandpa, etc..........(and, of course, her grandfather and me!). From left: Harper, John, Audrey, Blake, Brian, Great-grandma Lenore, Amanda, Ben, Olivia and Alex on the couch far right, and Reed on his knees in the middle of the room.
'Aunty' Michelle and Olivia outside on a day when 71 degrees beat the heat record for Des Moines yesterday! (That's Uncle Martin behind on the left, and my nephew, Ben, on the right.)
Aunt Sam with Reed, Olivia and Harper greeting her. (Sam IS actually Olivia's aunt, but Michelle's kids--Reed and Harper-- call Sam that, too, and adore her!)
