First Denver Heldt houseguests!

Yes friends, we'd only been in our new home a little over a week when we had our very first overnight California visitors!

We were so, so blessed to have Troy and Becky Hawkins spend some time with us during their visit to Colorado (to Colorado Springs actually, to see Becky's uncle.) We met them for lunch last Saturday out by the airport when they flew in, and then last Tuesday afternoon they came up to our house and stayed the night, and flew home the next day. It was so great to get to hang out, go out for Ethiopian food (even though the food was probably the worst Ethiopian food we've had, but that's another story), and see good friends.

It occurred to me after they left that Troy and Becky feel really more like family to us than anything...our home is currently in a state of semi-disarray, we couldn't really offer them a very luxurious guest room, our kids are still in crazy-transition-mode, etc--but it doesn't really matter. I can give the Hawkins cold cereal in the morning and that's really okay. We feel so comfortable with them, and felt so honored that they would take some time out of their visit to see us.

Anyway, our home in Denver is open anytime to any friends that want to visit. Come see us!

Just so you know...when the Gibsons come or not...I expect little mints on my pillow, french milled soaps in the shape of delicate rose petals, 4 course breakfast, and pink toilet paper. Now that you have the heads up, you'll have no excuse.

(Nice couches!...They look new!)
