My father arrived from Austria in mid September for a six week visit . He usually comes every year but missed last year due to health issues , not his own , but his wife's . There have been two new additions to the family since his last visit 2 years go , Jessey is a real little boy now , no longer the baby that my father remembers . So there has been a lot of catching up . We've also celebrated 4 birthdays since he arrived and had more birthday cake than is good for the waistline . Not to mention Thanksgiving and turkey with all the trimmings last week . Suffice to say , I'm all tuckered out and will not be cooking or entertaining for at least a week after my Dad leaves on the 25th ...not so much as a toast , if I can help it .
The rest of my Dad's stay promises to be just as crazy as the last month has been . There's just no rest for the wicked ! I shouldn't complain too much because I'll probably miss all the hustle and bustle. Catch you later !
