We have arrived!!!

After a long flight from Honolulu to Phoenix with an extended stopover due to a snowstorm in Denver, we finally landed at Denver airport to the views of snowplows working hard to clear the runways. We were greeted warmly by our new friends, Ange, Dan  and Susan. Many hugs and kisses as well as gifts were exchanged. We felt overwhelmed by the kindness that was shown to us!

After a short drive through very snowy roads and some traffic hazards we arrived at our new home - wow!!! It could not have appeared more perfect, as it was covered in snow. We waited while Dan shovelled a path for us to the house. Yasemin and Max were very excited and could hardly wait to dive into the snow. They were strongly encouraged by Susan to pitch a good snowball.

After looking around our new home we were raced outside by Susan who met and then introduced us to many of our new neighbours - everybody was so friendly and welcoming. Garry and Ange had a go at removing the snow from our new car.

The house is really lovely, we are really lucky to be spending the year in such a great place. A big thank you to Annie and Sam for making the house so comfortable for us, along with the gifts that were waiting on the dining room table. It was about this time that Garry and I were starting to worry that our place might be a bit of a disappointment for Annie and Sam? We think their house is fabulous and love the prospect of a back yard and are looking forward to our first BBQ!!!

  1. What a wonderful sight to greet you! There's almost a 'warm' feeling about snow in scenes like these.

    I googled your address and saw the huge backyard. Yasi and Max will have a ball.

    I can't wait to check out your spare room!
