    Yes, my DD lives in Oregon. Because of work and unforseen reasons, she did not make it for the holidays. Blessed be, she came to visit last weekend for 3 days! I was so happy because the last time I saw her was last October.
    Have a wonderful time with your DD and family.

    I told my two dds that they couldn't move out of the county! I grew up far away from my grandparents. My mom lives 1 mile from us and I like it that way!

    My DD#1, her DH, & DGS live 2,000 miles away in MD while DS lives about the same distance away in VA. Miss them all so much. Never miss an opportunity to let them know how good the weather is here when it is horrible there. Just a little nudge to suggest they might want to move to the southwest.

    Two of my three children and my beautiful grandsons live in Virginia while we live in California. They both went to the same University in Southern Virginia. My daughter married a local and has the 2 boys. When my son finished up at the University they asked him to stay and work in the I.T dept.
    I have one son and dear daughter in law that live 5 miles from us. My children are triplets and share a unique bond with each other. The 2 in Virginia are very close to each other. I miss them more then words can describe. We use Skype a lot. I love when they come to visit.

    My oldest boy (32) lives in Sydney with his wife and my only grandbaby. I live 1000 miles north of them in Central Qld, but I see them at least once a year.
    My two youngest sons live and work in Amsterdam together. Jimi has been away for nearly 3 years and Mick joined him a year ago. I went to visit them last November.
    The both told me 'we are never coming home, mum' . The joys of dual citizenship and the EU. So guess I will just have to keep visiting them. Not hard to do :)
    I am completely kid free now. It not all good for me, but they are all happy.

    My oldest son and grandchildren live in VA. We do Skype also. My youngest son lives half an hour away. It really is hard having them so far away but my son is very good about sending pictures and phone calls ect. We try to see them at least 3 to 4 times a year.

    When I was growing up we were here in Illinois. My mom's parents were in Southwest Virginia. Every long weekend of my life as soon as Dad got home from work on Friday night we were in the car. Dad would drive 10 hours after driving a truck at work all day so Mom could visit her family Saturday and Sunday and then on the Monday holiday we'd drive home so he could go to work on Tuesday. Mom really missed her family and wanted to visit but would never learn to drive and do it herself.

    Enjoy every minute you have with your daughter when she is home.
    My oldest son and DIL live only about a 2 1/4 hour drive from me. They are expecting their first baby. My youngest son and DIL live in China. My son was home in April, to see his aunt just before she passed away from cancer, then in May he was home for 48 hours when my mom (his grandmother) passed away. October they were home for her sister's wedding, so they didn't come home for Christmas. It was my first Christmas without him here, so a sad day for me, but also a happy day when I found out from my oldest I was going to be a grandma. I think they were a little homesick at Christmas. He called to get recipes from me for things that are traditional for our Christmas morning breakfast. Then he called Christmas eve and Christmas morning. They think they are going to sign up for one more year there. With all the thing going on in the world right now I would really like them home on USA soil.
