Saturday night the girls and I went to Genghis grill, so yummy and fun then to the broadcast. While we were sitting and waiting for it to start Heather walked in and said "I have a surprise for you" so I followed her to the foyer and there was Connie and Ashlie!! I hadn't seen them since we moved to TX! How fun!!
When I went to work J was little, just three years old, and Connie watched her. Actually two Grandmas also took turns and Connie. It was the ideal arrangement. Grandmas~ can't beat that. And Connie, she was wonderful and kind and treated J like her own. J and Ashlie are the same age and became fast friends. They were so cute, little tow headed Ashlie, and J with her long dark locks. They loved to play together. Shortly after we moved to TX they also moved, to Virginia.
Now they are here for a week visiting with Heather and Brian and taking care of some family stuff. Last night we had the whole gang over for dinner. Mark and Connie and 5 of their 6 girls (Steph is at BYU), Heather and Zach, and niece Kailey. We had such a fun night, we cooked, the kids ran around. We talked, the kids played outside. We had dessert, the kids jumped and skipped. We played games. J and Ash discovered "they were just alike" and it was a great night.
It's such a small world :)
