One More Sleep

Our humble abode is abuzz with excitement tonight, for Nana & Papa (my parents) blow into town in less than 24 hours. The boys and I will retrieve them from the airport around dinner time tomorrow, and the anticipation is killing us, I tell you! They will be here for two weeks, and Camden has 10 of those 14 days off from school, so the timing is just great. My parents are wonderful house guests, and we just love to have them around. On top of that, their visit also means I can get a hair cut (finally), and that Steve and I can sneak away for an overnight in the Big City. Yahoo! For those of you who have access to family members in your every day life...do not take it for granted! I'm looking forward to morning walks with my mom, spending Thanksgiving day with my folks, and most of all, seeing my boys with their Nana and Papa. See you soon, Mum and Dad!

It's 3:15 a.m., and we're heading for the airport in about 45 minutes. It was a short night, and it'll be a long day, but it's worth it. See you soon! Love, Mum

Just had a call from Mum and it sounds like they may be able to hop on an earlier flight out of Chicago on standby and get here MUCH earlier....we should know in about an hour! Yippee!!

In the same boat, I never take my local relatives for granted! Have a great time, Heather!!

I think of you often and NOT having your parents close and try really hard to appreciate having my folks 3 miles away and seeing them each and every day.

Enjoy your time!!!
