Visitors Galore!!!

Last week started with an unexpected visit with Scott's youngest son, Connor! We haven't seen him in 5 years, so it was very nice!! He is a great kid! He wins a lot of skate boarding competitions. Hopefully we can get him down to visit in the summer.

Wednesday Scott's dad arrived. Scott's mom decided this time to fly all the way back to Vermont instead of making the long drive, can't say that I blame her! We miss her terribly! Pa is a great addition to our already crazy family....he is cooking for me tonight and tomorrow night!! Yeah!!!

Thursday evening is when Tom (Just1More), Jo (TestifytoLove), (blogging friends from and their lovely 8 children came to visit. I tried very hard to get the kids names down pat by the time they left, but at the end of the night, I was calling one of their sweet daughters Johanna. Uggghhh! They were in the door about 3 minutes and I had already kidnapped the baby! He is such a sweet baby! Ansu, their oldest is soft spoken (with that beautiful African accent), sweet and very helpful. Jo said he was sent to her from God, I believe it. Emily is next, I can't say that I saw her much, her and my Madison hit it off immediately, hence were off doing 'girlie' things the whole night. Caleb is their 'future engineer' or whatever involves a lot of brains....he is one smart little guy! Chetan was the birthday boy....I think he really enjoyed his dirt & worm cake. He has a very sweet, gentle spirit! Micah is their little CF'er. He is a sweetie also....I do believe he has more energy than I have ever had my entire life!! He loved throwing the ball for Tamber, he was amazed that she would bring it back to him! Tom and Jo have done an AMAZING job with Micah. Honestly, he was in really rough shape when they adopted him. They deserve a special place in heaven for their love and care! Ragan (what a GREAT name by the way)was a little distraught because her new necklace broke, I felt bad for her, but Jo and Tom eased her tears with promises of a new one. She has absolutely beautiful eyes!! Little Elena....what a cutie! She was shy at first, staying in Tom's arms. She finally warmed up enough to get down. She really liked swimming! Our pool was FULL of kids! There she was right in the middle of it all, in her little float ring! Then there is the Judah! Ooohhh I just loved holding him, especially after he fell asleep, there is nothing like cuddling with a sleeping baby! He NEVER gets put down, they said there is always someone holding him! I can see why, he is just so darn cute! It was great meeting them all! We had a very nice night (a little loud and crazy....but fun).

Have a GREAT weekend!!
