Hi ya'll we are in Elk Grove and I am getting to use a computer! Papa didn't want to bring our laptop with us. I seriously have not had time to even read anything, much less write. We are having a great trip, it's too short. Each place we have visited has been just a little taste of joy and love and not nearly enough. It is very hard to return to a place where you have lived and visit all the people without having an entire month to do it in. Today we are getting to see the little baby girl! She is so cute I'll post photos when we get back.
Tomorrow we head back to the Santa Cruz area. I have been freezing to death! But it's worth it. You know I had a wonderful visit with Debbie and her family. My heart nearly popped hearing Lydia play "Oh Holy Night," on her harp. Rachel Kaye is my little luv bunny, she has so many talents, but charm is very high on the list. We bonded when she was a little newborn baby and still had her little belly button cord on. She's still one of my babies. A huge highlight of the visit was Matthew's recognition of me when I came in and greeted him, he lit up! I was allowed to give him a hug too! We had a wonderful time and it was too short.
The life celebration for our friend was incredible, he was such a great man very touching. I'll dedicate an entire post to him when we return. Our girls had one melt down while we were gone and we refereed on the phone. Suggesting having someone show up sort of motivated them to get it settled. One of our friends has a new puppy that nearly did me in, he is so cute! I need a dog. I am not getting anywhere with Pa on that. Hope ya'll are having a happy new year and will get back into the bloggin groove when we get home. Just wanted to say hi.
