And He's Back

Kevin has returned safe and sound from his travels half way around the world to S. Africa. He is still trying to adjust back to our time. Cape Town is 7 hours ahead of us so Kevin is having a time trying to get back on our time. He is in bed early again tonight.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers for all of us this past Friday. I know my dad is up there watching us all and I AM grateful I was able to have him for my dad, even though for shorter time then I would want. However, we are all doing well and I am enjoying the beautiful flowers my husband sent to me Friday. In all his travel and work he still made it on the internet to send me flowers (Paige and mama too!)

We are finally all set for Christmas. Yea!!! Mama and I were able to get the inside of the house finally finished decorated. I had decorated the tree already as we picked it up the weekend after T-giving and Kevin was able to get the lights on before leaving. Just took me a little longer to get the rest of the stuff out. Whew! Kevin and the boys got the lights up on the outside of the house tonight and we sure do light up our street! And, I am quite proud to say that Kevin and I were able to get the boys gifts today while Mama watched them for us. THAT is a HUGE relief. Now on to the rest of my list. Can't hardly wait... I LOVE CHRISTMAS!

And on final note...I am sure from reading Paige's blog you all know that she is having the baby on Dec 17. SOOO exciting. We will have a new little on for Christmas this year. Does it really get better than this????

10 Years

December 7 makes 10 years since my father passed away. Not the best anniversary but an important one none the less. I imagine December 7 would pass again this year as in previous years, a remembrance of my dad but a continuation of my life as is. This year is different. Different because it has been 10 years and because Kevin will be flying all day on December 7 on his return from South Africa. Anyone who knows me understands that I do not really like to fly, in fact it terrifies me. However, I continue to fly as my desire to travel and see new places eventually wins out over my fear. But for my husband to be flying (the one thing that really scares me) on the very day that my dad passed away 10 years ago is creeping me out a little. Please keep Kevin in your thoughts as he travels back to us next Friday.
