When I told people that we were planning on moving to Houston, they immediately began placing bets on how long it would be until my parents followed us. I gave them a year. My former principal thought it would be a matter of months, until they came to live closer to their only grandchild.
She was right.
After a phone interview last month, my dad accepted a position in Clear Lake, and they made arrangements to move into our apartment complex. We didn’t tell Beanie, so you can imagine her surprise when they knocked on the door, Monday evening.
The next day, we helped them move into their apartment, which happens to be right next to Beanie’s favorite pool.
Beanie happily got reacquainted with her “Grandma toys.”
Do you remember Raw Meats? Well, now she has a daughter, “Pink.” (Note that Pink is white with black spots.)
We celebrated Thanksgiving with my parents on Thursday. Traveling to the other side of the apartment complex was MUCH less stressful than driving for hours!
On Black Friday, it was time to start decorating the apartment! First, Beanie and I finished making ornaments.
We bought a tree with the ICM Thrift store, and Beanie was very anxious to display her creations on it!
