Mom and Dad were here so briefly we are all missing them already. They arrived Saturday and had to leave ahead of the ice storm early this morning. We hoped they'd get iced in with us but until they retire in a few months, we have to accept weekend visitation only. We had tea parties, took a walk, played with trains, ate junk food and grilled dinner before Mom and I slipped away for a painting class last evening. We both enjoyed it and decided my sister would be really good at it so we aren't inviting her along anytime soon. She'd make us look bad.
