WOW! Is all I can say! We have had a fantastic weekend. I am not sure why I was so nervous or anxious about Sean's Mom (Addie) and his sister Michele coming to visit. It has been 5 years since we last spent time with them. All due to circumstances out of our control. The last time the older boys spent time with their Nannie and Auntie Michele, Jaron was 3 and Kristofer was 1 and the twins had never met them. The kids absolutely fell in love with their Nannie and Aunt Michele. Now when they pray at night they have memories of the Nannie they have been praying for each night of their little lives!
We had such a good time. It was very hard to say good bye today. Jaron cried most of the way home. He was pretty upset about not living closer to them (which by the way is in NY - Long Island to be exact). It is hard on the kids to be so far away from both my parents and Sean's mom and family as well. We have some great ladies in the church that have become surrogate grannies to them but nothing is like being with the real deal!
So I just wanted to share as many pictures as I can tonight. Before I do I have to say something to Michele and Joe.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
You know why! Michele I know how hard it was for you to bring Addie out here. We can't thank you enough! We promise to come visit! We do! We will! Already making plans to next spring! We love you!
