Uncle Wesdawg in the House

 Uncle Wesdawg came to visit! Insert cheering emojis!!  You know you're family when you roll in from a 15 hr drive and are given big hugs and then immediately handed big boxes to unload from the truck/flatbed trailer in your driveway. He showed up just in time! Actually he helped A LOT. We still had the garage to empty and rental to clean and he helped with all that. That guy knows how to vacuum and swifter wet jet LIKE A BOSS.

He also is a professional uncle. Sometimes (only occasionally) Gabe can river dance on Nulkie's last nerve (like when it's pouring and we have a house to move and he has 150000000 questions about it) and Uncle Wesdawg was a good interceder on Gabe's behalf.
 A few gems to share:

Uncle Wesdawg: Hey Gabe I brought you some of my old lego people. It's Han Solo and Luke Skywalker from back when I was your age.
Gabe: Cool! I already have a Luke Skywalker though. And I don't think that's Han Solo
Wes: Well now you have two Luke Skywalkers. And that is Han Solo.
Gabe: No it's not Han Solo. I'm serious.
Wes: Gabe it's 100% Han Solo.
Gabe: It's 0% Han Solo.


Discussing his upcoming field trip:
Gabe: I think we get a pumpkin. I'm not sure though.
Uncle Wesdawg: Gabe are you speculating about that?
Gabe: Yes. I don't know maybe.
Uncle Wesdawg: Do you know what speculating means?
Gabes: No
Uncle Wesdawg: It means to like guess about something or think something is going to happen...
Gabe: Oh you mean like a prediction?
Uncle Wesdawg: *laughing* Yes that's exactly what I mean. In fact that's a better way to explain it.

At dinner:
Gabe: Uncle Wesdawg, can I tell you something weird? Well I mean some people think it's weird. I don't.
Uncle Wesdawg: Sure Gabe. Let's hear it.
Gabe: Sometimes when I shake people's hands or touch people when I first meet them,  I bring my hand to my nose and smell it to see if they smell bad! I just want to see if they smell.

Gabe is Davy Crockett. He *might* be wearing my shoes. Apparently my moccasins are very similar to what good ole' Davy Crockett used to traverse the wilds of Tennessee in. #frontierhipster

Thanks again Uncle Wesdawg!! We wish you could have stayed longer! Gabe & Evie put the HARD SELL on Uncle Wesdawg staying longer. He did stay one extra day before his 16 hr drive out to Tucson. Maybe it's an army-kid thing, but our kids are obsessed with how many days people are visiting for. How many days can you stay? What is today? How many days left? Do you HAVE to leave today? If you stayed this long you could come to Cub scouts! They do this the WHOLE visit. It really can guilt a person. Fortunately Grandparents are visiting in a few days since they're a little mopey since Uncle Wesdawg left. sometimes it's really hard to live somewhere with NO family nearby. I feel you G & E. Especially when everyone we know in Texas has their Entire family living down the road #TexasForever.

Okay I'll stop whining. We've seriously met the best people here! I had friends who watched our kids for the move and friends who loaned us a flatbed trailer and friends who gave me boxes! Such blessings to us! Thank you AMAZING FRIENDS!!!
