My parents are coming into town tomorrow! Yippie! I’m very excited for them to see our new house and our huge baby-toddler-child. (the one who has suddenly and unexpectedly removed Buzz Lightyear from the ‘Throne Of Obsessive Interest’ and replaced him with none other than ‘The Grinch Who Stole Christmas’- officially ending the AROUND-THE-CLOCK Toy Story marathon THANK YOU JESUS.) The Grinch will, from now on, always be my hero. He has single-handedly rescued me from the incessant drone of Tim Allen’s voice.
There are times when I miss my family so much that everything else that I’m doing in life seems a little fuzzy- slightly out of focus. I would love to be able to eat meals with them, laugh at Ezra’s antics with them, know that they are only a few minutes away if I need them… Maybe it’s just the upcoming holiday buzz in the air, but my family is on my mind constantly lately. So, I am really looking forward to my time with them.
Plus, Chris is going out of town for a few days again to help record an album in Kansas City with our friend Joel, so the timing couldn’t be better. It seems like everytime Chris has been gone, I’ve had someone around to help me. (This is probably because God has heard my ceaseless mutterings of “help me help me help me i need help help me help me…” and so on.) I’m hoping to spend some good quality time just hanging out and playing with Ezra because this time with him is so precious for MoMar and DooDad who only get to see him a few times a year.
Here’s some pictures of the hike that Chris and our friend Craig took Ezra on while I was out of town. Um, CUTE.
