There are just days that I start feeling a bit homesick. Homesick for Astoria, OR, and homesick for family. This just happens to be one of those times. My children put a beautiful picture of Astoria as our background on the computer, and I think that along with not getting to go for our Christmas visit, have brought on this feeling. I have two new nieces as well as a new nephew that I am dying to meet. Plus, my other sister-in-law is due anytime now with her 8th baby! All these new babies to meet, our own dear little one to introduce to aunties, uncles, and cousins galore......I am definitely ready for some time with everyone!!
