This week, we get to play host to our dear friends, Jennifer and Dale. They came down from Alaska to vacation with us. Their itinerary includes shopping, eating chocolate, shopping, and shopping. Well, that's Jennifer's itinerary! We knew each other in California, when we were all stationed there, with the Air Force. They became some of our dear friends, and we are so happy to have them with us!
Here are Dale and Heath, hamming it up in the kitchen, while cooking some tortillas for our Mexican feast last night.
Jennifer and I took some pictures as well, as we were waiting for dinner to finish cooking.
Jen is giving lots of love to all of my kids, but most especially to Georgie and Kimble. Georgie was born just a week before Jennifer's youngest, William, was born. William only lived 17 days, and was such a special baby. He left a lasting impression on all of us. For related reasons, Jennifer and Georgie have had a special connection, all of these years, and so it's wonderful when they get to spend time together again.
Also, if you remember, Jennifer came down to be with me when Kimble was born, and to help me through a very difficult time his first few days, when so many things were unsure about whether he would live or not. This is the first time Jennifer has seen Kimble, since he was four days old. She has thrilled in giving him lots of lovin'.
