T - 3 Days and A Lot Of Catch Up!

We arrived in Maine at Al's parents' house yesterday evening and are down to our final days before leaving for Germany! Al is getting the vet certificates done for the dogs ... he had to drive 2+ hours to the only USDA certified vet in Maine! Tomorrow we leave for our 2-day trip, down to Maryland to catch our hop to Germany ... with Al's parents! Al's dad is retired military and they plan to "hop" with us and help!

Ok ... time for some photo catch up!

Playing in the "Front Room" ... loaded with toys! The front room is the room Nana and Papa have set up as a play room for the grand kids. It's filled with toys old and new ... toys my siblings and I used to play with and toys that have been added to the mix for our kids!

We had two big snow falls while we were at Nana and Papa's in MI. Kelty and I were having fun in the fresh snow ... it was bitter cold so we never stayed out long.

Nana and Papa have a full sized ball pit and all the grandkids love it. Kelty spent a lot time playing in the ball pit ... here he his playing with Papa!

Kelty watching Papa plow snow after the second large snow fall. We were snowed-in for a few days!

Kelty flopped over the ball pit ... so tired from playing! We had the bubble machine going too!

We made a "Kelty Cane" to match Papa's canes. Kelty loved playing with Papa's canes and would walk all over the house with them.

Nana showed Kelty how to feed the baby!

Kelty and Nana playing the little house ... we'll bring these photos out again at his wedding!

Little Blurb

No photo's ... just a quick blurb to let you know how we are doing! We have all recovered from the flu ... including Papa, who never get's sick!

Last weekend my dear childhood friend, Shaylynn, came up to visit with her 4-year old son and 2-month old daughter along with Shay's mom. We grew up dancing together ... and when I say "grow up" I mean we started dance together when we were 5 and danced together for 12 years! I hadn't seen her since my wedding over 10-years ago! When she and her mom walked in the door it was like we didn't miss a day.

Other than that we've spent our days just playing! It's still bitter cold outside and currently snowing so we don't spend too much time outdoors. We took Kelty for a ride outside on the "mule" (a tractor/4-wheel utility vehicle) this afternoon while hauling out the garbage ... it must sound crazy ... we live in the country so driving tractor type vehicles is pretty standard around here.

Al is on his way up! He finished his training yesterday and will be arriving at the house tomorrow evening! Whoohoo!

Ok ... I'll attempt to load some photo's next time.
