*Arrived yesterday at 6:30am after driving all night (kids slept in the car, of course; Nick and I were beyond exhausted).
*Took the official tour of Dad's new house -- it's positively gorgeous! (I will have oodles of pics to share once I get home!)
*The guest room set up for Damon and Avery looked like Santa arrived a few months early!!! The kids were beyond tickled, of course.
*Waited impatiently for my Granny to wake up and walk across the street to greet us (Granny and Pawpaw live RIGHT across the street, literally. It's very comical!).
*Aunt Linda came by and spent the day with us; she made a kick-ass mouse out of PlayDoh for Avery. And we played with the karaoke machine some; too tired to get really crazy with it, though.
*Dinner at Granny's! weeeee! Granny's cooking is always the best part. Just so that Carrie and Stephanie will drool, here was our menu last night: fried chicken, mashed potatoes, biscuits and gravy!, green beans, mac and cheese, applesauce... and, of course, Granny's World Famous Chocolate Cake (Mary, I ate a piece big enough for both of us... and thought of you the whole time I was inhaling it!).
*I died as soon as my head hit the pillow at 9:30pm. It was such a great day, but wow, was I beat!!!
Today is yardsaling with Granny and maybe a circus tonight! Tomorrow is a relaxing day at Aunt Linda's and cooking out. And, Monday morning we're heading back home to the Frozen North *sniff, sniff*. I'd like to stay here for a week or two...
