Visiting With Uncle Eirik

The big deal this weekend was my cousin Eirik and his girlfriend Tanya coming up to Maine to visit the family. Elle was thrilled her "favorite artist" was visiting and it didn't hurt that Tanya brought her a sweet treat.

That is a handmade box, inside of which resided some tasty jellybeans. And that happens to be Elle's favorite candy. So to say that Tanya and Elle became fast friends would be an understatement.

It was a great visit and we all had a blast. Today was drinking Shipyard beer, grilling up some streaks and telling some funny stories. And Elle is still in seventh heaven tonight after the visit. Davey as well; he wants to be "a moviemaker" when he grows up and with Eirik being an animator at Nickelodeon...the word "hero" may be too tame.

It was so great meeting all of you! I am so happy that Elle liked my gift. It was very generous of her to share some of her jelly beans with me;)

Please tell Davey that I am still owed a "Price is Right" rematch.

Also, remind Elle to live by that quote inside of her special box. After meeting her, I am certain that this world would be a much better place if more people shared her beautiful spirit!
