A couple of days after we moved in, Krissy's family came for a visit from North Carolina. I unpacked and organized just about everything before they got here which was a good thing. Krissy had a wedding to attend, and a dinner the day before and a reception, and Wade left before all that, he stayed for 4 days, so we watched the kiddos while she went and then Grandma Angela flew in(so she could fly back with Krissy the next week) the next day, so we had visitors for about 2 weeks. It was nice spending time with everyone and the kids enjoyed having little ones around to help with :).
"If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don't expose it to the elements. You don't make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by."
