Staying warm and taking naps....

Yesterday was about staying warm and some of us taking naps. I love when Miya decides to take a snooze on my body - to feel her even breathing against my body. BigD is not tolerant of her laying on him for very long and would never hold his leg still so as not to bother her rest. Of course she was quick to show her total disdain when the camera clicked the second time and woke her from her nice warm snooze. Like - are you crazy Mama? It didn't take but a second for her to settle back down. While we were getting warm and chatting, I got a call from Keith. He said come out here - I went and looked out the window and there he was sitting in Jeri's car with her in the front seat!!! I ran out to say hi and asked Jeri if she wanted a fresh Krispy Kreme doughnut and she said - why not? I said - why not indeed and ran back in to get one for both of them and told BigD she was out there. I got in the back seat to visit with them while BigD stood at her window chatting. We then rode to the house next door to visit with Al and Pat but they weren't home. I know he will be sorry he missed seeing her. I asked them where they had been and they told me they had visited a few of the "older sisters who couldn't get out". I want to be Jeri when I grow up. One of the strongest women in my life - what a privilege I've had in knowing her for so long. Kurt, Leah and Page arrived tonight. Now for Page1 to get here safe and sound tomorrow - then the weekend can officially begin.
