Countdown

Here is a quote we've been hearing a lot of lately, "I am going to go hiking with Grandpa and Grandma! They are coming for my birthday when I turn 3, but I have to wait a lotta, lotsa days..." The speaker is Ella and it is blurted out to everyone including post men, cashiers and random people in the cookie line at church. On Sunday we hit the 20 day mark to their visit, so I thought I'd heighten anticipation even more by creating this countdown with Ella. There are 20 numbered pictures of Grandpa and Grandma on our wall and each night we get to take one down. It is very exciting (and good practice!) to count down how many more days until they arrive. Except for one quick weekend with Dad, we haven't seen VM family since Thanksgiving and don't have any other summer visitors planned yet, so we are all very anxious for the 24th!!

In the meantime, we are still having fun filling the days. Click here to read about our play date yesterday at Jetta's featuring 6 BRAND NEW BABY KITTENS for Ella to terrorize.

We are looking forward to our visit so very much, and also can't wait until the 24th! We are anxious to see all of you, and are anticipating a great time!

Love, MOM
