Damien's Visit

 Damien finally spent the evening with us on Thursday.  First time we've seen him since August.  He has grown!  And so smart!  He finally got to open his Christmas presents.  After spending some time with all of us Adam took Damien to his house for a while.  I took him back home pretty late that night.  We were so happy to see him.  He is quite the little man!  We are going to make sure we see him a lot more often.  As a baby and toddler he looked a lot like Adam and Richard, but now I see a lot more of Tiffany in him. 

Last November I bought a portrait package thru  It was a deluxe portrait bundle with four portrait sheets, two wall portraits, and free sitting fees for up to 10 people from Sears Portrait Studio for $35.  It was expiring on March 16, so we had to scramble to use it.  I wanted to get a family portrait with all of us; Richard and me, Audrey and Jason, and Adam and Damien.  But it was impossible to get our schedules together, especially since I almost forgot it entirely.  I called on Friday and made an appointment for Saturday at six.  I had to work until four and Audrey was working too, so we decided to get just Richard and me in the pictures this time.  We rushed up to the mall after I got off work and were early, so we went to the food court and got a bite to eat.  There was a big basketball tourney going on at the Civic Center and the mall was crowded, but ChickFilA wasn't too busy.  The hard part was finding a table after we got our food.  Then we went to Sears and got the portraits made.  They took seven pictures and the package included six so they offered us the other one for only $10 so you know we took it.  They should have our pictures ready on March 30.  I can't wait to see them because we saw the digital pictures on the monitor and they looked pretty good.  Richard didn't like them because he thinks he looks so old, but I told he that he IS old, so why fuss about it?  I mentioned it will be nice to have pictures to put in the paper, and he said yes, our obituary, but I said no, our 35th anniversary next year.  I never thought about our obituary.  Anyway, I hope to be a lot older before that is needed.
