Nanny & Papaw are here!

They arrived safely, on time and with all their luggage!  We couldn’t be happier!

They were exhausted of course, but hung in until bedtime.  They even went ahead a gave us all our goodies!

This is only a few of the marvelous things we received.  We also received clothes that were sent from my Mom and Michael’s grandmother.  Talk about being spoiled! 😉

We’re having a great time catching up, that’s if Justice decides to share Papaw.

Today the power went out and we left Papaw in charge of three kids while Nanny, Michael and I took the other two to the grocery store.  When we returned Papaw had helped engineer a very elaborate ‘tent’ in the living room.  The kids had everything they needed, even Papaw’s peanuts for food…..

Papaw’s + Kids + power outages = very cool tents

    That is a wonderful picture and is one that needs to be framed.
    Yep, Nannie’s and Mimi’s are quite good at spoiling grand babies! But how could we NOT spoil them.
    I love you and hope the rest of the visit is fun!
    Love Mom

    Hi Nina,

    I found your blog because I googled “Portugal Blogspot” and yours came up. Thank you for sharing in your life. I was a proselyting missionary in the Porto area (Ermesinde, Gaia, Rio Tinto, Sao Joao da Madeira) for 18 months and I miss it so much. It can be hard being an outsider but because of it, I think you can see the Lord’s hand so much more clearly. What a wonderful chronicle of your experiences. By the way, I love your childrens’ names. I have an 11-week-old daughter and her name is Anna Liberty. My husband wouldn’t let me use Liberty as her first name (though when she’s older, she can choose for herself, right?). Anyway, thank you for this lovely blog.

    Warmly,
    Andre’a Larson
