Kira surprised me the other day with a phone call to tell me that she was heading to Vegas for the weekend with her good friends to attend a bridal shower. She said that on the way back to Utah on Sunday (today) they would stop in and make a quick visit. When it's Kira, we'll take whatever we can get, even if it's a driveby and a wave. So we were all excited to see her, especially her sisters Michaela and Tibi. I have always been a very blessed mother in that all of my five daughters are extremely close, and I don't mean in age. Actually, they are NOT very close in age, except for Connie and Kira. They are only 16 months apart, then Lexie is 2 1/2 years younger, Michaela 4 1/2 years younger, and Tibi 6 1/2 years younger than that. (There seems to be a pattern going on there). But they have pretty much always gotten along and loved each other, especially since they have grown up, left the house, and don't get to see each other as often as they would like. (Sharing a bathroom with five girls doesn't bring out the best in girls for some reason). So we got to visit, laugh, tease (if any of you know Kira), laugh some more, tease some more, and just have a great time together. Then she was off to Utah and we are back to being a quiet, rather boring family. When Kira is around, the whole place lights up, IF we can all handle her jibing and jiving!
