In addition to the food mentioned above, thanks to my mom and dad, Joey and I now have 9 lbs of ice cream to eat. Not that this is a bad thing. The flavors range from The Buckeye State (dark chocolate peanut butter) to Praline to Lemon -yum. Mom, I have to admit, Joey loved his birthday present but I think he was even more excited about the dry ice that came in the packaging. He stood over the sink for an hour yesterday playing with the it.
|"What? This part of my gift!"|
This weekend is the start of all of the fun visits we have planned. A couple more weeks and Lizzie will be here and then the week after that Lauren is coming and then Bill! I am so thankful that my sisters and friends could find time in their busy schedules to come visit us before we leave the country for two years! My family's (this includes our friends) support has been so important to Joey and me through this process and even though goodbyes at Christmas are going to be hard and I'm going to miss you all like crazy in Nigeria, I know that distance and time are pretty irrelevant when it comes to the tight bond that we have. We'll make it work.
