Grandparents coming to town!

Today I got the unexpected (and wonderful!) news that my parents are coming to visit us in two weeks! Yay! I was a little sad thinking that because we were so far away from family (and out in the middle of nowhere) we would rarely get visited. I know that my other family (the Meyers) is going to try and come in a few months, and we are very excited about that, but I honestly didn't think that my own family (Coltharps) would be coming out...especially anytime soon! Dad just happened to have a business trip in Pheonix and mom decided she'd go with him. So I am very very excited to have them as the first guests in our home...even if it is only for a couple of short days. And Sam is excited to see Grandma and Grandpa!

So I finally started one of the books I have been wanting to read today - "The Brothers" by Chris Stewart. I only got through the Prologue and half of chapter one and I am already loving it! What does it say for a book that I was already bawling by the end of the prologue?? I'm sure it will be great and I am excited to get through it.

Anyway...peace out.

Jennie, I can't wait to see you! It's all I think about. Also, I've always wanted to live in Arizona, because I love the native American culture, the scenery and the warmth. It'll give us a chance to look at a small part of it. How cool that we actually have a good reason to at least visit there! Can we drive to Prescott Saturday or Sunday? I'm looking forward to at least one homecooked meal from you--I hear you are quite a chef! Love, hugs, kisses, slobbers, Mom
