Over The River and Through The Woods - Technology Edition

We spent most of Christmas day in our pjs...opening and enjoying presents, napping, eating cinnamon rolls, and making chili.  Our friend Kevin (who accidentally became locked in his room on a previous visit) was headed to our house from Ohio.  In the afternoon, I texted him a picture of the chili awaiting his arrival, and got a picture of the St. Louis arch in reply.  Soon, another picture came.  Six Flags.
I sent a picture of Riley, calmly awaiting his friend's arrival, and got a few more pictures showing where on the road Kevin was.  Just a side note, I am certain that he pulled off the road for each of these.  Let me believe that, please.
 Getting closer!  I sent a picture of Henrietta keeping his bed warm.  Usually, we refer to that room as the cat's room, but also often as Kevin's room as he has stayed there more than anyone else.

I think the final picture is the best one of all...our house just before he pulled in the driveway.  It was a fun way to check his progress, and to know just how long I had to get the sheets washed, dried, and on his bed.

LOVE the picture updates!!
and the door locking thing happened to me not to long ago... out in the garage... with the boys asleep inside. Yeah. Fun times. NOT!! Because I'm NOT a McGyver like Kevin!

Such fun!

I usually send little e-mail texts to Keri, our oldest daughter, when we're traveling toward her.

Never once THOUGHT to send pictures - - - I may have to remedy that NEXT time.

Where's the snow post?????????

I'm waiting over here on pins and needles.

Oh yah, I REMEMBER the "getting locked in" story!
