Heather's arrival

Last time we were able to see Heather was November 2008 while we were in Wisconsin! So excited that she is coming to Vienna to visit, never thought she'd make it our way...how exciting.



So excited about Heather's arrival, the girls and I are getting ready for her to fly in tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. We've got a full itinerary planned the minute she steps foot on Vienna soil. See she likes a schedule, a eating plan, and just the times when we will be sleeping, touring and going to church. So I prepared the whole outline for her. Most of you might be saying well that sounds more like you, but really I'm very spontaneous and don't tend to plan all those details when traveling, that is Charles job.

I always wondered why my Sister and other Mothers would not tell their children that someone was coming or tell them of an exciting event coming up prior to it's arrival time. I now have learned the hard way. I thought I would just prepare Aleia and tell her that "Auntie Der" was coming to watch her and baby while Mommy and Daddy went on a 4 day date to Greece. I believe I told her on my Birthday which was August 2nd, so all of you Mothers can relate what a nightmare it has been every night before putting Allie to bed when Auntie Der has not arrived yet.

Her arrival time is finally here.....and Aleia keeps running around the house saying "this is the best day of my life" hahaha! In all the 4 years of her life today is the best, how sweet. I don't think she understands she still has to wait one more night, but we'll do the whole routine again tonight.

I had to discipline Aleia last night and I asked her why she was acting with such unexplained behavior and she said "Cause I'm "A sited" in other words she is "excited" that Auntie Der is on her way and so are we.
