my kids are here...

The kids are here for the weekend, so last night, all 4 were here for dinner,
it was nice. but late, C and Chris did not arrive till 7..J and Nyki arrived @15 minutes later, so we weren't eating until after 8pm...so I was on the treadmill at 10:30..man, I'm too old for those kind of hours.

I've got Anna Karenina on the tv..with Vivien Leigh. what a beautiful, sad story.

I'm not working today, I was planning to, but with A.J. at work, I don't feel so far behind. BUT with mom here, I don't have any of my regular housework...so, darn, guess i'll have to go in the scraproom!!

C found some spelling errors and stuff in the wedding party book, and like a dummy, I did not save a draft...so I'm not sure of the font I used. That's okay, I'll find something close. Nyki is going to make bridesmaid's gifts for the wedding, turns out Nyki knows how to 'bead'...something I would really love to learn how to do.
But I had a book, and the girls chose a necklace...so Nyki is going to make them for C.

The wedding is less than a month...they were talking about possibly going to Texas.
(guess he can put in a request for this unit)...boohoo, they grow up and leave too fast!! But I can see the wisdom of this move, guess it would be 'long term' and they would be 'settled' (its a non deployable unit) so they both can pursue their Masters. Though C will have a Bachelors in sociology, the careers that interest her require a Masters. and Chris is working on his Bachelor's degree and wants to pursue a career in engineering. Sooooo...this makes sense...but 2000 miles away!!

How nice to have time with your kids! :) Very generous of Nyki to make the bridesmaids' gifts. I've tried beading, but it's not my thing. Sticking to paper. ;)

Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I'll be praying for you and your cat.
