Grammy's Visit

My mom came a couple weeks ago and it was the best thing ever!!! It was so fun to have my mom here and for Emmi to see her Grandma. We loved every minute of it. We had a really busy week but fun none the less.

(Almost) DAY 1: Grammy arrives in Philly. I went to pick her up in Philly which is 1 1/2 hours away, got stuck in traffic and was about an hour late picking her up, so by the time we got home it was 12:30 am. So hence the name of the day.

DAY 1: We woke up and Emmi was excited to see who was sleeping in the family room. I was worried that she was going to be shy around my mom but she wasn't. She never once cried or got scared when my mom held her. I could even leave to room which is a total shock since she cries when I leave the room and she is alone with Clint. She is just attached to my hip. Anyways we went to Chocolate World (a must when we have visitors) and then went to Panera. YUMMY!! Went home started working on my Christmas stockings and relaxed the rest of the night.

Day 2: Went and bought some fabric for some cute aprons that I made for me and Emmi. (To be posted later). Went out to eat at Texas Roadhouse YUMMY!! and relaxed and worked on stockings.

Day3: SHOPPING ALL DAY...need I say more.

Day4: Church

Day 5: Went to the pumpkin patch, went out to eat and then mom and I went to a movie. Nights in Rodanth, bought some treats and pigged out the rest of the night.

Day 6: This was mom's last day so we decided that we were going to leave early, drive to Philly and go shopping at IKEA and then go out to eat and then go to the airport. Well when we were packing the car we shut the back door and the door wouldn't latch. So I drove to the nearest Ford dealership where they told me it had to be replaced and that they didn't have the part. So we drove to Lebanon and sat at the dealership while they fixed my car. I was so worried that it was going to take long and then mom was going to miss her flight and chaos was going to follow. I swear every time we drive visitors to the Philly airport our car breaks. Literally. Our old car's engine blew up last time we drove Clint's family to the airport. We had to buy a new car. So note to any other visitors. If you fly and have us come pick you up we better pick you up from Baltimore. Anyways..the car was fixed and we made it in enough time to still go to IKEA.

It was so fun to have my mom here and I am so excited to go to Utah for Christmas and see everyone!! Thanks Dad for sharing mom with me. Love you Momther!!!

It sounds like you had so much fun with Momma...I was totally jealous of you guys (hence all the phone calls) but I am so glad you had fun:) And you were totally spoiled but you deserve it for sure! Emmi looks just like a little grown up in that darling peasant shirt:)
