Olivia is coming!!!

I am so beyond excited that I think I am bordering on crazy! (No comments on that one!)

Miss Olivia is a school friend of Jonah since they were wee ones. Olivia and her parents were in Canada for a work assignment and in the summer of 2006, it was time to go back home to England. Jonah was devastated, we were devastated. This is such a lovely family and we didn't want them to go. I can still remember saying goodbye at the Holiday Inn, hearing Jonah and Olivia cry out each others names. They were 3 years old at the time.

Many people say, chidren forget anything before the age of 4. I have never believed that. Jonah remembers EVERYTHING - even about Olivia, without prodding. He misses his dear friend who he says he will marry some day.

We have been counting down the days until Olivia arrives for a visit. It's this saturday!!! Its been 2 years! Her family is going to a wedding, so we are thrilled to be watching her for the day - more so watching the 2 kids together. Jonah has planned the day - he wants to take Olivia to the restaurant we frequent to order her Mickey Mouse Pancakes, then to the zoo so they can touch the stingrays together, picnic lunch at the zoo, the water park at the zoo and then out for dinner. It is a full day and we can't wait!

Jonah also wants to take Olivia to BuildABear. He wants to make a "Jonah" bear and Olivia make an "Olivia" bear - then they switch. This way "Jonah" is always with Olivia in England and "Olivia" is always with Jonah in Canada. Yes, I know my hydro bill is cheaper than a BuildABear experience, but this thought brings a tear to my eye - how could we NOT do that??

Jonah asked this morning, how much longer?? I told him 2 more sleeps. He said he wished that he could sleep thru friday so Saturday would get here faster. SO SWEET!!!!

We'll see you in 2 more sleeps Miss Olivia!!!
