Off to Colorado!

Well the bags are packed and I am off to see my parents in Colorado. It is ending up being a very different trip than originally imagined. My dad comes home from the hospital (after being there 2 1/2 weeks) with his new pace maker on the very night I arrive. He has his new pace maker but me nor my kids will be allowed to touch him for fear of him getting another infection. He will also have a home nurse managing some of the machinery he is still connected to. I hate watching my parents get old! The man who has been my rock and protector my whole life, connected to machines. I hate it. Still, it will be good to see him. Dentist husband will be managing the home front here since he felt he couldn't leave the new practice so soon after our last vacation. My parents don't have Internet, so I will check in when I get home.

On a side note, I have spent way too much time (when I have a house to clean) finally reading, "Twilight" by Stephanie Meyers. I have heard a ton about it but didn't buy into the hype. Well, I was wrong. All the hype is true. I also just finished, "The Ladies Auxiliary" by Tova Mirvis. I liked it. I didn't love it but I liked it.
I'm also posting a picture of toothsome #4 from her birthday (about two weeks ago). That is the doll she got and she LOVES it. She calls it "eiii". Her only real word is "da da" but she makes a lot of gibberish noises and specifically hollers, "eiii" every time she holds it.

I hope that you'll have a nice time on your trip and that you'll see your dad make some big improvements when you're there.

Have a great trip! That is my favorite little girl age, I loved that we had to take a baby everywhere. I just started Twilight today! Glad there are others who hadn't read it yet either!
