Surprise Visitor

Last night the kids and I were eating supper, and Nick called to check in. He is still on the boat and is not scheduled to come back until next week. We were talking about what we had done that day, and then had gotten into talking about what things we wanted to get done around the house when he got home...

One thing I mentioned, was to change the break pads on the van. He said, "ok, hold on, I'm pulling up to the house right now and I"ll take a look at it."


And as I looked out the window, there he was! The kids were so excited!

They were flying around, and then had to land on base to do some maintenance... and since it was late, they had to stay the night! YAY!

Trevor was able to 'read' a couple books he has memorized at bedtime, Kenzie challenged him to a few games of Mario Kart on the Wii, and he got to put Addison to bed! And then he was gone first thing in the morning!

Luckily, though, he will be back again early next week, this time for good....well, for a while anyways!

Here are a few pics of the kids I took yesterday. It was rainy, so we were stuck inside for the day.

Fun with stickers
Trevor's way of sharing stickers with AddisonAddison againHere is Addison playing with our guest for 3 weeks, Chiquita!
She tolerates Addison very well! Trevor, however, is another story, she is constantly hiding from him, and jumping in my lap when he comes around. All he wants to do is just hold her and walk around with her like a baby.

As I'm typing this, Addison is playing on the floor here and Chiquita is nipping at her arms and making her laugh. So cute!

Oh how nice that you got to see Nick! And I'm glad that Chiquita is tolerating at least ONE of your kids (hope she's not too much of a pain) See you in a week :)
