at trudys

I thought these little guys were so cute, so had to send them your way via attachment. Some ladies came for coffee yesterday to bring some life to my sometimes dull bedrest days, and that was so nice. Irving and Noah had a number of buddies to play with (L-R) front: Will Anderson (Lyle's), Irving Haataja, Bill Larson boy, Tate Johnson (Rodney's), Brent Johnson (Ken's), Noah Haataja. Back row: Lars Anderson, Bill Larson boy, Anders Johnson (Paul's).
