She'll be comin' 'round the mountain when she comes.....

Frankenmuth, MI 2007

She's comin' for Thanksgiving! YAY! And, of course, so is my son-in-law...and that makes me, well all of us really HAPPY! It gives an anticipation, and excitement builds the closer the day that we'll see them comes! The morning they leave you think about them as they pack off the dogs, say goodbye to the kitties.... and get the Suburban down the mountain and get to the interstate to start the long trip north. And you say little prayers all day long that they'll have a safe trip back home. It's a long, long day until they finally pull in the driveway!
But oh, what a wonderful feeling it is to have them within your reach and the sound of your voice again! You just want to cook them everything they like and take them places, and of course you look forward to a couple lively nights that you can PLAY SCRABBLE together.
This picture of Jamie was taken on the wooden bridge in Frankenmuth a couple years ago, and I hope we get a chance to get back up there again....oh the familiar things that become dear to you once you move far, far away! The visits to Michigan aren't long enough for all that we'd like to do!
