Oh the weather outside was frightful but getting to the twins was delightful!
Before leaving Nashville, Cousin Teddy (CT) demanded to help sort and wrap all of the gifts I acquired for proper spoiling.
CT was awfully jealous of the wardrobe choices I selected for the twins – it had his blood boiling.
Packing up the ‘sleigh’ proved hard to do…
The wind whipped and twirled…
And with that, the ice and snow whirled quickly over the roads, making travel treacherous in the night’s cold.
Snow plows prohibited from the roads due to weather conditions, we were forced to pull over with no intentions .
We unpacked half the sleigh for an eight-hour stay,
But all of the traveling paid off the next day!
I discovered a little diva during my stay –
And thanks to family and dear friends, a shower went underway.
A questionable stylish choice for an aunt – who was happy working and burping the day away.
Feeding and snuggling the babies was an easy treat,
But I saved some love for big brother Gunsie – I didn’t want him to think I was a cheat.
While Gpa was promising “spotted Indian ponies,” (which with further investigating turned out to be spotted horses, FYI), “Mustangs (yes, the car) and promises galore,”
I braved the frigid air to get to my favorite store.
A trip to Von Maur makes every Iowa journey complete but being away from the babies was no small feat!
And while it was doubly hard to say good-bye,
I had my own Nashville baby waiting on me, just barely getting by.
Still warming up from the Iowa cold, my heart grew three sizes for the little souls I now love.
