|At McCarran Airport in Las Vegas - Thursday
|Our storage site close to McCarran Airport - Las Vegas. We saw license plates from several Canadian Provinces and US States.
|I needed help installing the Christmas lights and Easton was happy to lend a hand.
When they arrived at our home early on Friday morning, Easton could hardly believe we were home. He asked where and why we had been away. Although we Face Time, he was so thrilled to see us in person. Hugs were fast and furious. What a joy!
Brie was her usual smiley self and, although sporting a cold, she too was thrilled to see us. She was especially thrilled to see her Nana. She quickly cuddled into Jeanette's neck and shoulders. That reception from our grand kids is reason enough to make the journey home for Christmas.
|Easton had to be certain that I was doing a good job. He climbed the ladder for a closer look.
|Heights don't bother Easton
|Installing the lights was fun.
|Following a job well done, we were back indoors on time for some hot soup.
|It was so nice to hold our cuddly little Brie.
|Brie's naps are shorter than Easton's. She was back at play
As soon as he awoke from his regular afternoon nap, Easton immediately reminded his Nana that Grand Papa had agreed to start the Harley Davidson with him. That was true. Before long, he was dressed for the outdoors, the motorcycle cover was removed and the roar and thunder could be heard in the house. Brie and Jeanette came out to see what' the noise was about.
|The rumble made Easton's day. The noise did not bother Brie either.
|"This is fun......."
We already miss our former neighbours but we plan to see them over the Christmas holidays. The new neighbours were busy with the move in. We will get to know them better once they have settled in.
Trevor and Ginette - Easton and Brie's parents - joined us for dinner before taking their kids home. We were thrilled to spend time with them and we completely forgot to take photos. How can that be? Too preoccupied, we resolved!
So, it was a good day, all around. Anyhow, we are thrilled to be back home for the Christmas holidays and we look forward to enjoying family time.
Courtney and Owen flew here from Edmonton, this past Thursday evening. They are at Courtney's mom's home while awaiting our son, Deni's Tuesday night arrival. So, a lot to look forward too. Owen will be turning one year old, this January 13, 2015. He is a hoot to watch when we 'Face Time' with him and his folks, but to see them in person is something we look forward to.
That's it from here for now.
Thanks for dropping by.
