My mom came down to visit and to help me drive to Memphis. (I wanted to see my Aunt perform in Bellevue's Singing Christmas tree. She had a lead role. She did great!)
Mom and me and the kids made it back before the ICE STORM.
Mom brought her toy cow she got in Switzerland. She also dressed Elam up in a cow outfit.
Isn't he cute?
Are you wondering where Andrew is during all this?
Green Bay Wisconsin!!!
He left on Friday and was supposed to get back Monday morning. His flight was canceled and he did not make it out until Tuesday at 4:00pm. He was supposed to have a morning flight both Monday and Tuesday, so he was up at 4:00am for no reason. Those of you who know andrew know that he is not a morning person. He was also left all alone on Monday because his football buddies made it out on their flight. As I type this he has made it to Cincinnati and is awaiting a flight to OKC. He should be home by 10:30.
I am so thankful my mom was here to help me. I was able to leave the kids here at the house and run some errands when the ice thawed today.
Below is another tree, but this tree is not frozen with ice. It is a silver BIRTHDAY tree decorated with pink ornaments. We started this tradition for Haven last year for her 3rd birthday. It's a special way to celebrate her December 23rd birthday.
