It's the most... wonderful....time... of the year

The boys, Steve and I are thrilled...after much deliberation, much back and forth, Grandma & Grandpa made it out to Arizona!  Warren has been suffering from not-quite-ideal health lately, and has been in and out of the hospital.  It looked as if they would not make it this year.  We were extremely disappointed, but certainly understood.  How awful it would be to feel poorly out in the middle of nowhere - the drive takes them 4 days, and much of it is through the most desolate landscapes.

Then, one day last week, we got a surprise phone call; they were in Missouri and on their way here!!  The boys did the happy dance, and waited with anxious anticipation for Tuesday when we presumed we would see them...

The first thing Christopher did when he saw them was to run away into the living room.  He can be a bit shy at first, and it still takes him time to warm up, but that was not why he ran away - he brought with him the picture they had sent to us for Christmas.  He looked at the picture, then at them and proclaimed "IT'S YOU!!!"  He then broke into a huge grin and gave them both monster-hugs.

The best part about having Grandma & Grandpa here are times like this photo.  Snuggling together, talking, getting to know each other, and, of course, having someone to share popcorn with.
