Missed teatime this week with the ladies.
Couldn’t really avoid it. You see, a princess was coming to visit and I simply had to give her my full attention.
Yes – Princess Kenzerella – (a.k.a. Baby Mackenzie) – was visiting with my son and daughter-in-law, Andrew and Andrea. A lovely break in a rather mild winter. So glad, too – excellent traveling weather for February in South Jersey!
To be sure – a good time was had by all – even Copperfield – who kept his distance from little fingers, but couldn’t resist finding a comfy spot on all the dress-up clothes among the toys . . .
Lots of following toddler around . . .
Plenty of bottles . . .
Shopping the stores with Auntie Bethany . . .
Visits from all the relatives – especially great-grandpa . . .
I introduced Princess Kenzerella to Lord Chumley and Lady Madeline . . .
They delighted Her Highness with a little duet on harp and fiddle – though sounding a bit aged on this vintage music box, recently highlighted in my Valentine post HERE.
Attempts at a regular nap schedule – and sleeping through the night in a strange place . . .
Were decidedly a challenge . . .
YAWN . . . had the best night last night right before they left for the drive back to New England.
A highlight of the visit for me was the joy of seeing both my children onstage together again – worshiping the Lord at our church’s young adult coffeehouse night.
My daughter sometimes sings on the worship team at our church and my son is the worship leader at his church in New England. He’s been playing guitar for worship bands since he was in 7th grade. He composes his own music now, too – and performed a couple of solo pieces and the testimony of the miracles the Lord has worked in his life during his bout with cancer and the premature birth of Kenzie – born three months early! I posted the full story on this amazing tale back in August – read it HERE.
But, as I post this, they are well on their way up Route 206 heading back home to their normal routines again. And me – well – I’m back to my piles and files and work – but, not without a thankful heart for such a precious respite in my winter – a gift of joy from the Hand of my Lord.
Looking forward to March and some upcoming “green tea-times” – perhaps an early spring – flowers in bloom . . .
And, hopefully a summertime visit with my loved ones, too!
