Uncle Derek

So Uncle Derek and his girlfriend Renee came for a short visit last night.  They hail from Alaska, so quite the distance for them.  They spent some time in Littleton with Renee's brother and his family.  Then us.  Then who knows where else?  :)

Emmy was SUPER excited about having Derek come.  She asked me all day long - "When is Uncle Derek going to come?"  I was hoping he'd live up to her expectations. . . and he did.  She played all over him and he was great.  What an uncle!  He and Renee also brought some sweet gifts for everyone:  smoke salmon for we adults, adorable hats and mittens and a yo-yo for the girls, and rubber-band guns and socks for the boys.  The kids treasure them!

Here are 2 shots of the same thing, just because I can't decide which one is better.

I loved meeting Renee and just visiting with both of them.  They are both very cool.  :)
