Baby Come Back!


The last few weeks have been delightful having my favorite sister visit. We finally had to send her back, but she left behind some mighty fun memories:
  • playing Farkle
  • ordering ketchup from Sonic, with extra ketchup and a side of ketchup (OK, we didn't actually do this, but we were *this* close)
  • sledding on campus
  • sledding off campus
  • playing Wise and Otherwise (Go Banana Slugs!) and Apples to Apples
  • bean dip
  • being snowbound
  • watching movies together (Avatar, Terminator 2,3 and 4)
  • eating more bean dip
  • playing Poptropica with Master Munchkin
  • attending the Munchkin's Christmas concert
  • hunting for treasures at the consignment store
  • being despised and rejected by Borders (who knew they closed at 7pm on New Year's Eve?!)
  • watching deer walk by just outside the window
  • watching Star Trek Enterprise, Firefly and MacGyver reruns
  • the 12 Days of Christmas Dinner
  • the country music countdown
  • kickboxing
  • morning wakeup calls from the the cats, Munchkins, and/or Trooper
  • the checkout lady at the grocery store mistaking Rene for one of my children
We miss you already, Rene. Come back soon!

I miss all of you too!! That's a great list. I'm so glad you took the time to write that down. You know my bad memory...now I can go back and read them and smile anytime!

Ooh, we need to add Skippyjon Jones and "Stories to Read to Your Dog"!

The fact that you love your sister so much shines through whenever you post about her. What a special relationship!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Sister are indeed special, what a cutie she is! I wouldn't want to let her go either. :)

Awwww, how sweet. I have 5 brothers, I totally don't understand, but wish I did, haha. Just got caught up (been busy the past few weeks). I would love to be invited to the Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer dinner next year! Too funny!

Happy New Year!

The 12 Days of Christmas dinner is a brilliant idea! I'm really wondering about Grandma's dinner though.
Glad you had another incredible visit with you sister. Hope she drops by again soon.
