In just nine days all 'my people' will arrive.
This handsome couple make their way to the airport and wait for a plane (about 2 1/2 hours), fly for 3 hours, rent a car and drive west another 3 hours after stopping for Tex Mex.
Muffin 'only' works 3 days next week before saddling up the Toyota and heading West, making the same 3 hour drive after stop-and-shop at Central Market. You don't think I actually make those tamales from scratch for Christmas Eve, do you?
Kaki works three days with the families who will miss her more than their warm summer days while she's here with us.
All these adorable people pack for two days, drive 3 1/2 hours, and include 12 suitcases,
11 wrapped packages, 10 toes and fingers, 9 books to read, 8 stuffed toys,
7 days worth of Rice milk, 6 days of dog food,
5 Golden Rings (not really, but what else fits here?)
4 Christmas stockings, 3 kinds of cookies, 2 black and white dogs,
and don't forget Roo and Emme (roughly rhymes with the partridge, etc.)
Love you! See you soon!!!!
