Bye Maw-Maw and Paw-Paw

by jessicaturner on July 26, 2008

Matthew’s parents last night with us was Friday. We had a really nice visit. Matthew’s dad particularly tickled me because he was just so cute with Elias. He held him, talked to him and prayed for him all the time. It was really sweet. He also was very agreeable when I wanted to take his picture with Elias – and he normally doesn’t love having his picture taken. :)

Tomorrow my parents come to visit for a few days. My dad is SOOOO excited to meet his grandson, who he fully intends to teach how to become a trap shooter and hunter. Mom is really looking forward to seeing Elias again too. It is also my birthday tomorrow, so I am excited that they will be here. I love my birthday. Birthdays were always a big deal in my family, and I fully intend to make them a big deal for my kids too.
