Max and Ilona’s Visit – July ’05

Max, Ilona, Grandma, and Grandma Candy…

We had a great visit with Max and Ilona and Grandma, and made sure we got to spend some quality time with Grandma Candy as well.

The kids were great, and we had such a good time with them. We had so much fun. But WOW, what a lot of work. We were both bone-tired exhausted after they left. I can’t wait till we get to see them again.

On Being an Auntie…

We are now on day 3 of the great munchkin adventure. Max and Ilona arrived with Grandma on Friday night. Mr. H had been a little trepidatious about spending 5 days with my mom and 2 toddlers, but Ilona took care of that when she quickly made it clear to everyone that Mr. H was her chosen one, her favorite, her ‘Princess Transportation Device,’ and pointedly declared to Mr. H that she needed a hug. He complied. The two are now best friends and Aunt Judy is jealous.

Max is charming and handsome, and at five, quite the little man. He always makes sure to hold the door open for anyone that needs it, even the automatic doors, which he holds open by waving his foot in the air in front of the door. He also misses his Daddy. Every other sentence starts with, “My Dad …”

There’s so much more to tell, but right now we’re off to spend the day with Grandma “Candy”

Whew! Aunt Judy is tired.
