...the past week. And how much we enjoyed it. We had a visitor, and we could not have asked for a nicer young man to welcome into our home. My Madison met a friend through one of her social media accounts, and began talking to him on the phone. They talked for hours and hours and became quite good friends. Steve and I spoke with him as well, and also used Skype to meet his parents. When Madison and he asked if he could come to America from Denmark to visit, Steve and I agreed that it would be a good experience for both of them, as well as for our entire family. And so last week, Madison, Steve and Rhett drove to the airport to meet him. : )
All ready to go...and not a bit nervous. ; )
The moment they met in person at last. : )
We welcomed him with an Italian dinner...what else?!...and spent the first evening talking and laughing and visiting.
The week flew by with dinners and games and movies and even visiting Steve at the dealerships. Saturday night he joined us for Mass, and then we invited some of our family and friends in for a super casual evening of Subway subs and fun. : ) We could not have been happier for the two of these young people. Nicolas was polite, respectful, pleasant, classy, intelligent and fun. His parents did a wonderful job of raising him! He taught us as much as we shared with him, and it was a wonderful week.
Oh, and I made an apple pie...because is there anything more American than apple pie?
The morning of his last full day here, I surprised them with a special breakfast for two. : )
And they were so thankful and cute!
In other news, Kirby got a bath for the occasion...
and Flynn was thrilled with the new jammies that the Easter Bunny forgot to put in her basket and had to mail to her. : )
First outdoor-before-Mass-photo of the year!
And just some of the women in my family who came to visit and meet Nicolas on Saturday night!
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!!!!
