Our 2nd Home

The kids and I spent the weekend at Vicki's (my twin sister). Last night, Madison and I were discussing how comfortable we all are there. We don't even feel like guest anymore. When we are there, Vicki and her family don't feel the need to entertain us...we are just part of the family. Vicki's youngest child, Landon, turned 4 today. We had his party on Superbowl Sunday. We had lots of food, which her husband made, and a Thomas the Train cake. Vicki didn't invite any outside children because between our two families, we have a house full. Landon had a good party.

Vicki and I took the kids to my dad's on Sat. to visit him and our stepmom, Lyn. We were excited to get to see his new calf....born on Thursday. The kids always enjoy playing at my dad's. There's so much room to run and play. Of course, I like going there because it's always like going home. He still lives in the house that I grew up in.
As always, I have come home tired from the weekend. Vicki and I always stay up too late, but it's worth it to spend time together. It's so hard pulling away from her house, especially when Landon is standing at the door crying. He just doesn't understand why we have to leave.
When we first got to their house, Landon ran to the door and said, "Mama, Sherri's home!" That says it all.

How exciting to see the baby calf being born (that has to equal at least a few good hours you can log in for science!).

Glad to hear you had a nice time and your nephew is too cute!

Sounds like the way I feel about my sister. I have had other really good friends in my life that are really really close to being like sisters, but nothing quite matches a sister.
