Come and Gone

Nathan's grandparents came to visit! I must say I love his whole family and especially his grandparents. The Roots are a big family, loud, different, and I wouldn't have it any other way! The remind me a lot of my dad's side of the family. Papa and Granny were only here for 2 days but it meant the world to me for them to come and visit. I love the "distinguished" generation and there is nothing better than listening to your grandparents tell stories.

I especially love listening to Papa or Granny Root tell stories about the family (the whole family with distant cousins and all). I have only meet the immediate family (5 children with each having two children of their own-YEP a nice big family). One day I might be able to meet the distant relatives that seem to be over, TX, LA, ARK, and MS.

The Roots are planning a family reunion this coming summer and the more I think about it, I do hope we can make it - Nathan's Aunt and Uncles haven't met Gabe yet. Last time we were all together (except for Paxton, Jennifer, and their kids) we did the Root Reunion at Calloway Gardens in Georgia and I was pregnant with Gabe. Then the May side of the family is trying to plan something. As well as my parent's trip in April to Florida. Sheesh maybe we should transfer to Eglin and everyone can just come to our house on the beach.

Now off to pack I go! KC is where Thanksgiving is this year and goodness I can't wait. My grandparents, parents, brother (sure wish Rye could make it!!), Aunt and Uncle, with two of my cousins will be there! Plan is for Nathan and I to have two movie dates (New Moon and Blind Side), take Gabriel to Santa at Santa Land in Bass Pro (almost a year ago that my parents took Gabe to see Santa for the 1st time), and down to Crown Center and the Hallmark Store.

I truly love my family and Nathan's family. As nutty as some of them are, at least we have family!


  1. I hope you have a blast over turkey day! I miss the KC area, especially crown center!

    By the way, you better not be transferring to Eglin anytime soon....I need you here!!!! :)

  2. My favorite thing in the whole wide world is listening to those Root family stories! I don't care how many times I've heard them.
