New year's eve was pretty normal and low key. Friends, Greyhounds and Rock Band 3, go figure.But three days later was nothing ordinary. Many of you follow IHateToast on her Needle Noses blog. We have been following her blog for a long time and have used modern technology to forge a friendship even though she lives in Australia. We know her so well..but have never met. Until now! Katy, her husband (affectionately known as manboy on Facebook) Mark and her stepson Andrew stopped by on their 'tour of the US' for a night.
Henry thinks she smells like kangeroos and shrimpCali proves her 'tart-ness' and snuggles up instantly.Kristen and Gyeong also come down with their crew to meet her. Stanley shares the couch while Cali continues her snuggles.Hopefully gyeong got a better photo of them. But here is Katy, Kristen, Gyeong and Mark with Stanley, Stella, Jaime and Beth.
And then Katy, Mark and me with Cali, Dana (and Stanley and Beth in the background). Jason and Andrew were geeking out at the computer and missed the group photo.
We had a great dinner and introduced them to Gyeong's smoked pork butt and Jason's delicious sides. The next day they packed up and headed to their next destination. Oddly, two Bald Eagles stopped by my backyard to see the Aussie's off..
It was great to meet them! Hopefully one day we will get to Australia to snuggle with Omo and Fabian.
