On Saturday we had Greg's sister Tammy, and Uncle Glenn and his wife Kathy over for dinner. It was fun to see them! After dinner we played a little bit of Hearts, with some crazy variations in the rules. I was winning for most of the game, until the others ganged up on me and I got the Queen of Spades quite a few times in a row. Uncle Glenn ended up winning, and he did not let us forget it!
After Uncle Glenn and Kathy left, Tanya, Dave, and Andrew stopped by on their way home from St. George. It was getting a little late, and Andrew was a little cranky from being in the car for a few hours. We managed to keep him entertained, though, with his baby doll, and the piano, and the race car - his favorite toys to play with at our house. I also pulled out my laptop, and showed Andrew this video of himself that I took the night we got Tayler's announcement. He laughed and laughed at himself! We must have watched it 20 times. In the video, you can hear him saying "whoa, whoa, whoa" - and as we watched it, he would say it out loud. In the video, I also ask him to say "chop, chop" - and every time, he would say it. It was hilarious to watch Andrew watch himself.
My grandma is so cute! She is almost 94 and, in my mom's words, still very spry.
I have been so grateful in the last couple of weeks of the outpouring of support we have received from family and friends. This is definitely a tender mercy. I always knew we had amazing friends and relatives, but it has really hit home lately. Thank you for always being there for us - for sharing in our sorrows and challenges, and celebrating in our joys. Our lives are so rich because of the love with which we are surrounded.
