Mother of the Bride Spot

Random thoughts on being a Mother of the Bride...although since we are now past The Wedding, perhaps this would be better titled Random Thoughts On Life In General...

Tim is HOME!!

We picked him up at O'Hare tonight -- a snowy, blowy night....His flight came in an hour and a half late from Paris...and then of course, was the interminable wait for him to navigate getting his luggage (it's still in Paris) and customs -- at least this time he wasn't detained by Homeland Security...

Ah -- but he is home. And he's loving every bit of the C'mas lights and music -- there is none of that in Morocco.

His friend Michael got home from Guatemala tonight too. Michael has been serving in the Peace Corps since last April and his folks brought him home for C'mas too.

His mom called me today -- two excited mothers -- our sons are home for Christmas!!

And the best part is that Torrey & Chris will be here on Friday so we will have ALMOST our whole family together. If only Jill, Derrick & Deven could be here too -- but Jill said "I'm not ever coming north again when it is cold...."

OK for you -- no more "home for Christmas" or "sleigh bells ring" or "chestnuts roasting o'er an open fire...."

But tonight -- I'm one happy mom!

WELCOME HOME, TIM!! And our Timothy is home, too, after stopping for some spoiling by Aunt Jan. :)

And we're happy for the Bargers and the Newbranders!! I know that you all will rejoice in being together and you may even enjoy the cold and snow. We'll just have to put up with sunny and clear skies with cool nights and mild days. But if we turn the heat down we will be able to enjoy a nice, cozy fire in the fireplace. Meanwhile we'll just keep on dreaming of a white Christmas. :o)
