The Yankees are Coming!

Okay, it's just my Mom and Dad but they will be here today. We are so excited. At ages 77 and 73 they still make the drive from Maine to Florida and well, back to Maine FROM Florida each year. They stay with us for 5 months and we cherish every moment with them. See I have 3 out of their 4 grandkids so I got some serious bargaining tools. Our kids love my parents. My husband loves my parents. It's a God thing for sure. We really look forward to this time each year.
Listening to my 7 year old and my Dad's intense conversations can be interesting to say the least. I have to tell my Dad to quit pulling his leg half the time because my son thinks Papa knows everything and believes him! LOL. My Mom is the snack queen. My kids will not lack for snacks for the next 5 months! LOL.
So my note today is to ask for special prayers as they finish their trip today, that they are safe.

See you tomorrow for Friday Funnies!!!
P.S. Where were you all yesterday, I only had 9 comments about my Thanksgiving Recipe week. That's not like you gals! LOL If you missed it, check it out!
