My Girl


Just a happy photo to share with everyone....with a silly story.

My daughter came home for Christmas! What a good time I had with her. Jessica is just the Best!

Funny little story. I booked the travel a few months in advance. And I did double checked her flight time the night before. (so I thought) I thought I had plenty of time to tidy up and get ready for her visit as her flight didn't arrive until 10 pm Monday evening. Even though I thought to myself "why did I book a flight that late, it really cuts the visit short." Oh well....

So on Monday morning I get a call at 6 AM or so in the morning and it was an exuberant Jessi talking away. I was groggy and didn't really panic when she said she was in Denver.." yeah yeah honey, hugs and kisses....can't wait to see you too..mmm" I layed my head on the pillow and "what??" Uh.. yeah.. if she was in Denver then she would be home in a three hours!!!!... Aye Aye Aye!!! a quick rush to the computer to verify the time. Oh my gosh! Hubby and I got up and finished the housework and showered and picked her up.... about five minutes late.... she was still waiting for luggage... Anyway.. as you can tell by now her plane was to arrive at 10 AM not PM.

I am so glad she called or I would have been in sweats at Walmart or something and I would have had one ticked off daughter thinking that I forgot about her. Ha ha.... not really funny if you know my Jess. Uh.. don't be late or forget about Jess... or..... Well.... It is funny NOW... that everything turned out.

It was wonderful to have her home for the holidays.

PS. Dexter loves her too!
