It's been a quiet day today..this morning our home was filled with laughter, a last minute rush to get in conversations, and then as quickly as they came, they left. GiGi and her family slid away on the freshly fallen sheet of ice. I miss her already. She's incredibly easy to talk to, I selfishly want her to sell it all and move up here to the Kansas City area. Right now.
Some of you might know that Cat and GiGi are the first two friends I made when I began blogging. Cat lives very close by, goes to the same church, and is a very dear friend I see quite a lot of. But Gi lives a few hours south, so I haven't seen her since our whirlwind hour at Silver Dollar City this summer.
As I go through the pictures, I realize to tell it right, it's going to take two, possibly three posts. If I did it in one, you'd be bored to tears, and that would be no good at all! Nope...so part one right here.
GiGi landing on our porch just after our first measurable snow arrived, which was very cool because we went through the Christmas In The Park lights display the first night, and those lights look so much more amazing in the snow. If you can take a look at GiGi's smile and find you're NOT smiling back, you might need to look into that. It's just not possible--she's that adorable.
When the lovely Cat and her family arrived, we downed some pizza and got ready for Christmas Tour Part One! We split up, guys & kids car and ladies car! Before we took off, though, we took the traditional shoe pic....
So after the lights, Cat and her fam headed for home and GiGi was good for about ten more minutes, lol. You can literally watch the sleepiness overtake her eyes, it's like a switch turns her off right in front of you!
I've got so many photos of the next night, so I'm going to just slam you with them tomorrow. I'll give you a teaser photo, though...our meals were delivered by a train. And we wore little train hats. And we like our train hats. A lot.
