My sister, Brother-in-Law, Niece and Nephews all came up this morning! We had so much fun that they stayed most of the day! Wii played games on the Wii and the XBox. We read the kids stories! We held the baby and just hung out. Toward the end of the day we were having some pretty competetive Wii games. I also got to play Halo with my sister and Bro-in-law. I have been wanting to play one on one Halo with them for years! (Really, years. We have had the XBox for four years! And ever since we got it I wanted to shoot my sister...well, in the game, I am really quite fond of my sister) I know that this was the first time they had picked up an XBox controller, but I beat them! Both. I got Scott with a sniper bullet, and my sister with a few grenades! Of course, Scott gave as good as he got...given a little while longer getting the hang of the controls, he would havesoon been wiping the screen with my body. I am lucky that the girls decided to play Wii again.

Carrie, Scott! Thanks for coming up! We both enjoyed you and the kids! The ice cream...the ice cream was AWESOME! Homemade and rich. The best! Cora had made some raspberry topping a few weeks ago, and we all had some on our ice cream! We need to get together with family more often! (Everyone loved the Ice Cream, see? Eli is serious about his food.)
On the down side, I did miss my flight. I wanted to go fly, but we just kept having so much fun and then I noticed the time. I realized things just might not work out. I called my good friend the electrician and he seemed to understand. Hopefully we can reschedule! I really am happy that he gave me a chance to fly, even though I didn't get to.
We let the kids watch "Signing Time."
At the risk of sounding corny, We flew high today, but never left the ground!
