Ray, Jess and the kids arrived around 11:30, Tuesday night. It was Rays goal to make it here for my birthday; they stopped only once, the entire trip up from Tampa, to achieve that. My best present this year...Ray wrote and sang me two birthday songs, and had me in stitches.
You know the beginning of the movie, Home Alone, where the house is noisy and crazy? That's kind of what its been like here. I'm in my room taking a break right now; I can handle only so much fun.
