My family is coming up from Arkansas to visit.  They will be here Friday.  I’m pretty excited.  My big brother is coming for the first time.  I’m still convinced he should move here, but it will be a hard sell this trip. My parents have been  up every May since I had kids (I should have had kids sooner), and it’s never been this cold.  It’s 48 degrees today with a wind chill of 41 and a dew point (whatever that is) of 38. I’m thinking of putting up the Christmas tree and placing some presents underneath.  The kids are already singing Christmas songs, so all of that along with the weather will help me get my wish that they come visit me for Christmas.  It might confuse the little ones, but it would be a fun welcome for my family.
