Happy Happy, Joy Joy!

We had a wonderful surprise visit from my Youngest Sister this weekend. The group she works with sent her and her friend/colleauge up to our wonderful city to attend a conference and promote the conference they are planning in Nashville.

As we don't usually get to see her between Christmas and summer it was a wonderful surprise. Her birthday is on Friday so we even got to have a pre-Birthday celebration for her complete with cake and Birthday hat (or flowers if you will). We did have to change our initial plans to go to the canal and skate but we can always do that next weekend. Instead we went downtown for a wonderful lunch on Saturday, and had our party on Sunday.

We just dropped them off at the airport to head back to warmer climates. Her girlfriend is from California and although she has mittens that she wears in North Carolina once in a while, she definately wasn't prepared for the frosty temperatures that greeted her this morning. The -21 before the windchill was definately the coldest she has ever been. It was fun to share with her our wonderful weather.

Although Youngest Sister is now on the airplane getting ready for take-off (oh, I hear it now going over the house! Yep, that was her plane) we already miss her and hope she will get sent up our way for conferences a little more often. At the same time we are thankful she made it up for a little taste of the family.
