Family!

We are so excited that my mother-in-law, my brother-in-law Zamir and his wife Nadia are going to be here tomorrow morning! They don't get to visit for long, because they are headed down to Mobile, but we can't wait to have them with us for a few days. And in honor of this occasion Zakir hired the kids to help him clean out our chronically cluttered garage...... and paid them in ice cream. Now you no longer trip on something every time you walk into the garage, you can actually see our little under the counter freezer (I think I had forgotten it is actually white), and I made a new discovery; we actually have a little deck in our garage above the stairs! It has been so full of junk, mismatched shoes, painting supplies, rolls of wrapping paper and a heap of other things for so long that we couldn't see it. and now that all the leaves from umpteen autumns have been blown out or swept out of the garage you can actually see the floor too. I wish I had a 'before' and 'after' photo to compare, but the 'before' picture would be just too darn embarrassing!
