Long time gone...

Long time, no type! It has been a couple weeks since my last post, and I have many pictures and stories to post. I shall say, if you are not interested in pictures you can pretty much avoid this blog for the next few posts. I shall then add, if you are not interested in pictures, you probably don’t read this blog anyways!!! :)

I have enjoyed reading up on everyone earlier this week…it’s hard to keep up on blogs when travelling. Then, due to confusion while travelling, our internet was not paid!!! After a day of waiting for it to be turned back on (oops!!! ) I finally have internet access again! I will try to return and make comments over the next week…I will also be trying to update everyone on our BUSY end of March, but first I feel I need to get a few random things out of the way…

· After nearly two weeks of traveling, I saw my house again for the first time! I was so glad to be home, but was dreading the first night at home with the kiddos!! It always seems that for every day on the road we have one bad week of bedtimes when we get home… I was ASTONISHED that both of them went right to bed, and slept til 8:30!! (Listen…can you hear the Hallelujah music in the background???) THEN, they both laid right down at naptime and slept for 3 and 3 ½ hours!!! Holy smokes!

· I am very excited—Lawson is playing tee ball this year! He is very excited and keeps telling everyone he’s going to learn how to be a baseball player.

· Jordan keeps sitting on the potty. She’s almost 20 months old. Lawson was so easy at 2 1/2; I’m not sure I want to tackle this with such a young one!

· I am SICK of cold weather. It SNOWED twice while I was in Michigan!! It was freezing! I had to buy Lawson a winter coat…so I found one in his next size on clearance. It was only $8! Hmmm…I wonder why it was on clearance? Maybe because YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE TO BUY A WINTER COAT AT THE END OF MARCH!!!

· My kids LOVED the snow!

· I feel like I use all-caps way too much, but it’s how I let you know in writing where I would raise my voice or roll my eyes if I were really talking to you!

· It is so refreshing to see GREEN everywhere! I woke up this morning and was shocked at the greenery in my yard! The grass, the flowers, the bushes-everything is in bloom! BEAUTIFUL!! What a surprise that our azaleas are in bloom too!

· We had a 2008 rental car for 15 days. I’m afraid that when I go to the shop to pick up my 2000 van w/ 200,000 miles I will be sad to see the nice, new car go!

· It was great of my mom to take care of the entire Easter Bunny duty. More to come on Easter, but I don’t know what to do with the two nice Easter baskets, the two plastic Easter baskets, and the plastic sand-castle bucket I brought home????

· Jon flew up to Michigan Thursday morning to spend the weekend with us, go to the wedding I was in, and drive home with us. Before he left, he washed our sheets so when we got home we would have a fresh bed. Heavenly.

Glad that you guys are back home! We missed you! We'll have to catch up sometime. I can't wait to hear all about your trip!


I'm glad you're back! We missed you. I'm looking forward to seeing your face more...along with your kiddos. I can't wait to see the pictures. By the way, I'm still laughing about your dream of me showing up with the hamburgers. :)
