Settling back in

So, it's been a week since our return and we are settling back in to Colorado. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Colorado. It's by far my favorite state so far, besides the cost of living and all. I have a soft spot in my heart for Arizona though because it's always so beautiful. The same goes for Jersey, where I wish I could visit soon, but definately not for the same reasons. Merchantville is charming though. Camden, not so much. I would love to sit down at Vincents again and enjoy a delicious panzarotti, or take the kids to Aunt Charlottes. We should consider a Jersey family reunion sometime. That'd be fun. Maybe to see Grandma VanSciver and the cousins and aunts and uncles on dads side. Just a thought. Anyway, Kaiti and the babies leave again in 2 weeks to Georgia to spend some time with her father and stepmom. Kaiti has sorta recently rekindled a relationship with her father after a long time of not speaking and they have become very close since. It's been a few years now and they are making up for lost time. Her dad, Jay, and his wife, Sondi, are absolutely wonderful people. They take such good care of our babies and always have us in mind. They will be gone for three weeks or so and I'm very sad about it. But, I know Kaiti loves spending time with her father and he usually comes out here for the visits, so this time it's her turn. That means three weeks without my children or my wife. That sucks. I am gonna miss them so bad and may even break down sometime, but they'll be back. And I'm gonna surprise them. You see, Kaiti is an expensive girl and the babies aren't cheap either. So I'm gonna do an extreme makeover of the house while they're gone. At least I'm gonna try. I should have some extra money left over to do a few things without them being here. I'm not looking forward to it, but it's coming up soon and I just have to deal with it. Anyway, I was getting rave reviews from friends and customers about this movie calles "The Strangers". I was hearing it was the scariest movie ever and some people even said they had to leave the theater because it was too scary. SO.... I took my beautiful wife out and we had a chance to see for ourselves. Let me just say that I would not go out like that. There is no way I would have done a single thing the same way as those sorry pups in that movie. I don't want to spoil the movie for you, but it's a classic Dad movie. You know what I mean. Remember Dad watching scary movies? "Don't go into that dark room......Awwww he went into the room..." I guess you'll have to see it for yourself. I'm just saying, if I had a shotgun with a ton of rounds and the killers were like a 25 year old guy and two girls, one of them like 13 years old, I think I could hold up a fight. Anyway, I got your letter today Jenna and it was very sweet. The sentiments are shared on this side. We love you all and hope we get to speak with you all soon.

I've been into scary Spanish films lately. If you've never seen Pan's Labyrinth or The Orphanage and can deal with subtitles...watch them.

Good luck with sprucing the place up while she's gone..I can't wait to hear how that goes. And 3 weeks isn't so bad..she'll be home before you know it.

Oooh Pan's Labyrinth is a good one. Not so much scary as totally weird.

3 weeks! That is a long time. You can do it though. Take some before and after shots of the house so we can see too. I love that kind of stuff.

The Strangers looks horrible. I'll skip it.

Go rent or buy a movie called WIND CHILL.
