Beauty, Bruce, and something awesome!

Well, we had a wonderful weekend. It was really fun and really fast. We stayed at Jeff's parent's house the whole time. We were able to make it to my parent's house for Sunday dinner though. I would've never heard the end of it if we hadn't. :)

We had the play to go to later Saturday evening. During the day we visited and made a trip out to Costco. I know, high excitement. The whole family met up at Dale and Tracy's house for dinner before the show. I've only had taco soup a few times in my life, but each time I've really loved it. I'm going to have to make some. Before leaving for Richland, I had to show my nephew's how to get through the big castle on Super Mario Bros. for the Wii. I took the controller and Lindsay said, "Watch the Master at work." HA! Love that kid.

Beauty and the Beast was really good! Like I said before, my niece Amicherie was playing Bell. She was amazing!!! She has such a beautiful voice and she delivered every line perfectly. Everyone in the cast was spot on that night. I was certainly a proud aunt. The girls really loved it too.

Sunday dinner was good at my mom's house. I got to see my adorable nieces. You know you're loved when one of them makes a bee line for you before saying hello to grandma first. I love my nieces.

We of course left really late that night to go back to Spokane. We stopped back at Jeff's parents house to get our stuff and we got sucked into the vortex. The vortex being visiting and then more siblings that show up so you then need to visit with them. I can tell you, married to Jeff has trained me to be a first class visiting fool.

The ride home was uneventful. I had my big cup of ice to munch on. The girls watched their borrowed copy of Beauty and the Beast on the computer. We pipped the sound through the car so I could listen.

So, busy, busy, busy. I apologise to Miss K for not calling her and meeting up. I beg for your forgiveness. We can most certainly get together during spring break. We will be there the whole week. Let me know if that works.

Now, a follow up on Bruce. He was fine. He didn't have anything wrong with him. It was decided that he was upset about Jeff being home that weekend. If you need to know anything about Bruce it's this. He LOVES me. He follows me everywhere, even if everyone else is home. He sits with me wherever I sit. He kills Lindsay's rabbit fur and brings it to me every week or so. He will get in between me and someone if they are close to me. I guess that weekend we were gone a lot and he got pushed off one too many times. He hasn't done it since. It was only that once. We were able to get the smell out with a special cleaner and a carpet shampooer.

Lastly I would be remiss if I didn't tell you that I detect something awesome on the wind. It seems to be coming from somewhere. I think it will land here tomorrow....hmmm.

Wow! You sound so happy. I am excited to see your awesome. And thanks for the kind words out here in blogger world. You are an inspiration to me. If you can get out of the funk, I feel like there is a chance for me.

Keep up the good work and I am glad you got to spend time with your family.

Sunday is always the best when you Jeff and the girls are here. It warms my heart to see how much Lex and Lori love their aunt Heidi. You deserve it because you have been a wonderful aunt from day one and I know that you are definitly a VIP to them both. I'm looking forward to Spring Break week as well!
Love Mom

woman, hey what's your situation come the end of april weekend?
a friend of mine & i plan to attend TOFW. turns out that weekend is also bloomsday weekend, so hotels are slammed. at this point i can still snag a room, but i was wondering if you'll be around. it doesn't bother me either way. just don't wanna get stuck at the last minute without a place to stay. could we stay with you or are you guys gonna be moved by then?
love you!
(p.s. i'd have just emailed this straight over, but for some reason my address book didn't retain your email address. sorry.)
