The perfect height

I used to say that a child was the perfect height when she/he (mostly he around here) could fit nicely right under my neck when hugged.  You know what I mean, right.  They just snuggle in and you can rub your chin on the top of their head.  Perfect fit.

It is no longer the child who fits under the chin.

We said good-bye to Matthew, Thomas and Kay today.  They're heading to Denver, where Matthew will visit a special friend ; ) and of course, Jonathan and Kandyce, too!   From there he flies back to Minneapolis to start school and Thomas and Kay head west on a month long road trip adventure!

Before they left, I made a send-off dinner with ravioli (Matthew's favorite) and these two antipasto trays.  I've never made antipasto before.  It was fun and they turned out so pretty and delicious with a variety of olives, prosciutto, salamis, pepperoni, marinated green beans, cauliflower and carrots, fresh mozzarella and parmesan cheese, artichokes, and pepperoncini peppers.  Nice last dinner together for awhile.

Bye y'all.  Safe travels.  Godspeed.  We'll miss you!

this is adorable.

also, jonathan always used to say (when we first started dating) that he wasn't short- he was the "perfect height for hugging."

now i know where that comes from! :)
