Joanne,
I read your post of 12/3 with interest and skepticism. It seems that your invitation to "come home" for Christmas was not extended to your nieces. Your blogs are sweet and pretty and clearly fiction.
your niece,
kelly

Kelly,
When the invitation was extended, neither your grandmother nor I had your address or phone number due to your lack of contact with either of us. Please be informed that the invitation was extended through your father. Maybe you should speak with him. It’s sad you feel you need an invitation to visit your grandmother.

Joanne,
Just received the birthday cards you and Grandma sent to the girls and me. Thank you for remembering us. And for remembering my anniversary--the big 10 is worth remembering.
Big wink: Curious how you were able to send birthday cards to the boys in August and to me and the girls--just this week, but otherwise had no way to contact us ;)
***As for the invitation--with four children, we never go anywhere without one, as we cannot afford a hotel and wouldn't dream of imposing ourselves without a specific invitation. Not even to my mom and dads.
Have a great weekend.

Kelly,
You father gave me your "new" address on Thanksgiving. These type things could be better discussed and addressed elsewhere. My e-mail address is posted here. Why not use that? Issues and questions will not be discussed here between family members. There is a time and place for everything. This is not the time nor the place.

Great minds think alike. I sent you an email shortly after I posted.
