Wow!  It has been forever since I was on here.  Soooo much has been going on lately.  Within the last week of posting my parents have arrived!  Last Tuesday they made their final drive to our house.  Elijah was so excited to finally see them!  This is a picture of Eli when he saw them driving into our driveway.

Too cute, huh?!  He is my joy.  He has been so excited to be with them.  Of course, he has been wanting them to play with him non-stop, but hey, doesn't every child want that?  :-)

When my parents arrived, the cold weather did as well.  We joked that they brought it with them.  However, then thinking about it, Pap-pa said, well, Eli wanted us to bring the snow.  Wednesday & Thursday it was very cold.  Thursday evening they were calling for some winter weather.  Ice & Snow.  YUCK.  Didn't I move to Texas to enjoy NOT having this weather?  Well in the end, we got some ice.  Good news was I didn't have to go out in it, although we did once it melted.

So, on Thursday, my sister, Joyce, who now lives in Ohio, flew in to have an interview on Friday at the Texas Children's Hospital.  Thankfully, Dan came home on Thursday night too!!!  Thank God!  Because, Friday morning, Dan was able to drive Joyce downtown Houston for her interview.  Phew.  With all the road closures it was quite an adventure for them, but they all arrived home safely.  So...Joyce got the job and she will be moving here with us!!!!  It's unreal.  I really haven't gotten the realization of it all now.  If you think about it though, please keep her in your prayers as she is starting this new journey in her life.

This weekend we had a house full!!!  Dan was home.  Mom & Dad are here & Joyce was here.  There wasn't a lack of attention for the little man.  We all had fun together & enjoyed the warmer weather on Saturday & Sunday.  It was nice to be back in some warmth again. 

Dan is back in Coke, TX again this week.  I'm starting to get anxious about going home for a while in March & having the opportunity to see everyone.  It will be fun & I look forward to catching up with everyone.

I am going to leave you with a few pictures of Eli & Pap-pa playing & video. Cherished moments.
