SO SO SO GREAT to have Michael home. Yes, he still leaves a wake of "piles" through the house, but it's comforting in a frustrating way! He's already back at PF CHANG's and this is ONE HAPPY FAMILY about that! Love us some discounted PF CHANG food! The weather has been oddly dry---chilly but dry, so he is still racing around on his motorcyle and I have come to peace with it.
Megan, Laura and he are up at a Fireside Ryan (Innes) is giving tonight...6 hours in the car was too much for me to want to head back to Centerville. Megan's friend Caroline called off her wedding, but the honeymoon was already paid for, so OF COURSE...Megan is going with her along with 2 other friends...the first night is in a Penthouse in Vegas and the rest of the week they will be in Cabo!! Needless to say...ALL are thrilled...even Caroline! Megs leaves next Friday! That girl has been EVERYWHERE this year. I am so happy for her! I love that you each will get a significant amount of playing in before you become parents!!!!
Josh is no doubt STILL in the Library.....but finals will be over and he will be home sometime next week after Wednesday? Sam heads home Tuesday night...he is pretty bummed to be leaving the happiest place on earth for HIM so far. He'll be making LOTS of trips up there between Christmas and March 27....and hopefully his new friends will be heading here for weekends as well.
All of your Christmas is sent, and I have Dad's done, but I haven't done one thing for the other kids. Megs wants cash...I think Michael does too...but if I give Josh cash he'll never spend it on himself for something FUN...and Sam...who wants mission stuff for Christmas??? I've got to get serious about it Tuesday once I get caught up on work from being gone. It's so much more fun with surprises...the problem is the bigger you get the bigger the surprises you want!!! And you KNOW I want to give you ALL everything you want! Can't help it. MY HAPPIEST present is going to be our time talking to you! Let us know details when YOU know. Giving me an actual date to write on my calendar of when you are coming home would be ANOTHER GREAT gift:)
I love the FEELING of love and giving that comes with this time of year. I love that one person came and made such a difference on the planet. I love that SO MANY ONE PERSONS have come to make our earth and the cultures and the LOVE we have access to live in here and now. I love that YOU are about sharing your LOVE!!! Miss you big....LOVE YOU BIG....and can't wait to hear from you in the morning BIG!
XXOOXXOOXXOOXXOOXXOOXXOOXX and a back scratch!
