Stacey’s house

December 15, 2007

My visit with Stacey (and Cat!) was so much fun!  It was also pretty relaxing…which was needed considering I found out (after I got there) that my surgery was cancelled!  Grrrrrr….  I told my husband, ‘I’m too irritated to go home so let’s just stay here and have a mini vacation’.

Stacey and John are hands-down the most generous hosts I’ve ever encountered.  And I’m a missionary kid so I’ve been to TONS of people’s homes….even her kids were kind enough to let us bunk in their rooms.  It was one of those homes that you feel completely comfortable going in the kitchen and helping yourself to whatever.  They definitely have the gift of hospitality.  I would’ve been a wreck had roles been reversed.

From the moment she opened up her front door, she talked to me like she’s known me her whole life and didn’t stop all weekend!  Come to find out she talks a lot when she gets nervous!  Isn’t that a hoot?  She’s a smooth talker too.  Some how I got wrangled into helping her work at her church for a little bit and was completely oblivious to it until it was all over.  She’s that gooooooood!

Cat, her husband Jeff and her youngest actually wanted to do stuff with us too, so that was totally cool getting to know her as well.  Cat’s a little bit of a wild girl (oh yes you are!!) and Stacey kept trying to keep her in line, so I was constantly entertained.

We ended up going to see Santa Friday night.  The funniest side to this was trying to keep my 2 boys from spilling the beans about Santa to Stacey’s son.  My 2 guys are a bunch of fuddy-duddies and never bought the whole Santa story.  Thankfully they think it’s great fun to play along.

Here are Alex, OldMan, and Brandon playing on the Crayola playset while waiting for Santa:

I love this picture of Stacey doing what Stacey does best!:

We ended up talking about everything under the moon and then some.  We’ve sworn on our friendship without involving spit or blood and I’m pretty sure I’ve met a life long friend.
