Time To Say Goodbye

Ray and Sharon had to leave last night late to go home to take care of their animals. My batteries were dead so I didn't get a photo of them. Had fun with you guys! Sharon don't break Ray's leg lamp. Maggie got Ray the leg lamp from Christmas Story. That's Ray's favorite movie but don't think Sharon wanted the lamp. Wayne hope you had fun and look forward to your coming this summer.

Maggie and Brannon had to head back to Tennessee right after breakfast. They have goats, dogs, cats, rabbits and also take care of rescue wild animals and needed to get back so neighbor wouldn't have to do the evening feeding.

Goodbye Maggie. Brannon, Kristine and Raigun. I already miss you guys! When I ask Raigun what her favorite gift was she brought tears to my eyes. Her answer was all of us being together. What a special little girl!

Next to leave was Megan and kids. Brian and his mom had to leave early so she is borrowing my van and make the drive to Franklin, NC with the kids.

Goodbye Megan, Quintin and Gabby. Sure do miss you guys and can't wait to see you again real soon.

Melody and her family arrived Thursday to help me get ready for the weekend and then stayed to help clean up afterwards. Thanks so much! You guys rock!

Goodbye Melody, Joseph, Woody, Hope, Zack, Julie, and Justin. Every picture I have of you guys leaving you look like you are sad to leave. LOL Can't wait for your summer visits so try to come back real soon.

We had a wonderful weekend but a busy tiring one. Counting down till next year and PopPop is already working on next years treasure hunt. I enjoyed having all my family together and love you all.

Peggy.... Oh, how quiet it must be after all your company has gone! I know that is so hard.

Thank you for contacting my swap partner. I had to do that several times with the ornament exchange plus filled in for one because her partner decided she was "too busy". So, I had two partner instead of one!

Hugs to you!!

What a blessing to have the visit, but I know how hard it is to say good bye to loved ones.
