What the Doctor Ordered

I found the cure for the Winter Blues. It's my mom! She surprised us (she called on a Monday and said she might come and then on Wednesday there she was!) and gave us all a great big dose of (grand)motherly love. Exactly what we needed.

Whenever someone leaves after visiting it feels like the house is a big empty cave. I love when people are here because they fill it with laughter, joy, security, fun, and the chance to be a kid again and get taken care of a little bit.

The kids enjoyed playing games, watching monster truck "movies" (history channel special) and Extreme Home Makeover, playing Wii, eating lunch at Landon's school, making pearler bead creations, building race cars and airplanes, and being tucked into bed with back scratches, hugs, and made up stories.

I enjoyed just having her here. Sometimes it just feels so good to be a kid again; let Mom be in charge. Oh, not to mention someone else cooking dinner - the Chicken Caccitore was awesome. Thanks for coming Mom. You left me rejuvenated. I love you.

I am so jealous! You have seen your family so much since you've moved to Colorado Springs. How fun.

My mom gets here in two weeks and I'm looking forward to the same kind of things with her. Moms are the best!

A MAGICIAN NEVER REVEALS HIS TRICKS..BUT JUST THIS ONCE I THINK IT WILL BE OK...JUST BLOW UP A BALLOON AND PUT A PIECE OF CLEAR TAPE NEAR THE TOP...THEN CAREFULLY POKE YOUR NEEDLES IN THE TAPE..AND THE BALLOON WON'T POP! PRETTY TRICKY
