Cloudy and dripping, then sunny and nice
=================================Oh you guys!!! What a blessing I had this morning!!
Pammie brought Evan over, after she dropped the three other kids at school.
He got out of the car and said, "Hi Mimi," and ran up to me--I was waiting on the porch, of course.
He gave me a hug around the knees and we came inside.
I so feared he would have forgotten me. I haven't seen him in five months, but he seemed very comfortable. He came over to my chair, where I was sitting, and leaned into me and I hugged him and kissed the top of his head and whispered, "Mimi loves you." and tried not to get tears in my eyes. He roamed around the house looking for the cats--he remembered!
I gave him his Elmo pillow and he squealed, "ELMO!" and then laid his head down on it. I was so involved with what was going on, I forgot to take a picture of him holding his pillow!!!
Pammie and I got to talk a bit, while he was investigating and looking under things, trying to find the cats. She told me that Andrew, who is almost 12, is bossy. Telling everyone what to do and how to do it. Elise and Jen spent last week in London and Paris (!!) and Elise is a bit snotty at times, she is 9. Alex is as calm as ever at 7, but has been in trouble a couple of times at school, with another boy there.
Most of the time, I just sat and watched him. He had changed so much since the last time I saw him. I know how fast kids that age grow and change. He is very tall for his age, has long legs and talks so clearly.
He kept going down the hall to my bedroom and saying, "Cats. Cats." I had told him they were probably taking a nap under my bed. After he and Pammie left, this is what I found.
He had taken all the cat toys from their toy basket and put them near the bed where the cats could play with them when they woke up.
He did the same thing when he was here in March.
Isn't he adorable?
His hair is longish and curly in back.
Elise and Alex are blue-eyed blonde's, and look more like their Daddy.
It struck me how much he looks like his mother
and his oldest brother Andrew.
...and they all have my nose!!!
Sally--http://www.whispering-hope.blogspot.com/do you think we ought to get the marriage contract signed now?
Sally's great grand daughter, is a couple of weeks younger then Evan. We have decided they need to get together, when they get a bit older. I borrowed this picture of her great grand daughter off her blog. Don't you think they would be perfect together?

I didn't do much today--I sat and revelled in the good feeling of seeing that sweet little boy, then watched my soap and went to the Chiropractor. Stopped at the Rich People's store for some salads and Boar's Head lunch meat and came on home.
Tomorrow--there will be staining more of the front porch. I sure hope I get it done before snow comes, LOL.
