Yay! Yesterday we finally got to meet little Isla! (Oh yeah, and Craig, too-- sorry for not sounding as thrilled as with Isla, but you know how it is these days, right, Craig?) Alison, Craig and Isla were in town from Scotland for Thanksgiving and, fortunately for us, had time to come to Austin for a visit. We have always kept in touch via their blog, www.ClanBuchanan.co.uk, but it was really good to see them all in person. Isla is so, so cute and I never heard her fuss once during the entire afternoon!

After lunch at Shady Grove with Ashley and Emily, Alison's brother Andrew, the Buchanans, Emmylou and I, and our friend Bev and her son Leo met at the playground at Central Market. Leo is just too cute as well, and since he lives in Austin, hopefully Emmylou will be seeing more of him soon. Emmylou and I actually went to the Farmer's Market with Bev and Leo afterwards and when we left, Emmylou kissed him on the lips! It was her very first kiss-- and his too!

As usual, I was kicking myself for forgetting my camera (what is wrong with me?), but Alison (a professional photographer) took a few at lunch and on the playground. Too bad I didn't get one with her and Emmylou or all the kids together!
