Meeting little Miss Penelope!

 Yesterday was a very happy day!
Since the day this little cutie was born, I've been anxiously waiting for the day 
when sweet Penelope and her Auntie Deb would meet in person.  
I mean, I feel like I already know little "Nellie" 
because I have spent plenty of time "stalking" her family's blog.
Every time a new post appears, I spend hours (and so do my girls, 
especially Ashley) staring at the adorable photos of this little sweetheart!
 And then after pouring over all the photos and videos of Nellie, 
Ash and I call each other and talk about how precious she is
and how she has to be the most photogenic little baby ever!
I mean, really... don't you agree?  Could she be any cuter?
Since little Nellie lives out of state, we hadn't formally met until yesterday and
I can't tell you how excited I was when her dad texted me last week
 to tell me that they were coming to town.
And since her parents, Elder Brad and Sister Karen Wilkes haven't seen little Nellie for a year...
(they are in Rwanda serving a mission)... this post is for you!
I'm so happy to report that Nellie is just as cute in person
 as her adorable photos appear on the blog,
and her personality is just as sweet and tender too! 
And although she was a little shy at first, Nellie soon warmed up to me
and I think we will soon be best friends:)!!
And to be honest, I wasn't surprised at all because, I mean, really,
 look at little Nellie's adorable good looking parents!! 
Sorry David, but actually you are pretty adorable and Vanessa is definitely adorable!!
I had such a fun visit with these three and the only thing missing was Grandma Karen and Grandpa Brad!
Only 4 months and a few days (yep, that's right, I'm counting!) until they are home
 and we will all be together again!  YAY!!
 The only thing better than Auntie Deb meeting little Miss Penelope in person 
will be when Brad and Karen seeing their little granddaughter for the first time in 18 months!  
It will be a great reunion!! I can't wait!
Love you, Nellie and your parents too!!  Thanks for coming to visit!
