My sister... KELLY!!!
When she surprised us at Christmas time, she realized that our parents are aging. I guess when you live away from a situation, you are more aware of the changes that happen on a daily basis. In all of us kids minds we see our parents fun, vital and youthful. We are lucky that at age 74 (Mom) or 79 (Dad) they are healthy, vibrant, fun people. But still they are getting older. I am so glad that my sister can have the time and income to fly home more often.
It's Kelly time ... she is a real organized, clever and imaginative person.
All the way from Florida she has organized a baby shower for ME and TATE. She has put our sister-in-law, five nieces and our Mom on "task". Mom (Nana) was suppose to dip fortune cookies in chocolate. I guess my dad felt left out and decided to be the one to dip the fortune cookies. How cute is that?! He did such a great and delicious job, he ended up eating quite a bit of the cookies.... Yesterday more fortune cookies were bought and he will be dipping a lot more. Extras were bought so he will have the opportunity to nibble to his hearts content.
All the way from Florida, Kelly came for some sister time.... lunch and a movie. We dragged my dad with us. We went to see Slum dog Millionaire. I was so worried that Dad would not like this type of movie. He loves anything war and the typical guy movie. He actually really loved it. Word from Kelly was he even shed a tear or two at the end. I loved the movie... no tears however from me.
Tomorrow is the shower..... No worries.... I will be taking tons of pictures and sharing.
