We're headin' home tomorrow! Boo.

It's been a really nice "vacation" here in Ohio with our families. We've really been soaking in the hugs, sweet and silly conversations, laughter, and familiar presence of family (and a few friends) for the past 11 days.

We're so blessed!

On this trip:

* I apparently lied to you and never posted a single picture! I guess you have something to look forward to now that I'll be getting back to regular bloggin:)

*I only got 1 good night's sleep out of 11. Boo again. A certain someone whose name begins with an "E" and ends with "liana" has cried out/woken up/had a party at least 6-10 times a night. Except one. I am exhausted!

*The boys have been in heaven with all of the hugs and love. They are really sad about leaving and I have a sweet story to share about that later.

*We played lots of games! I don't think I won a single one:)

*Accumulated so much stuff to cram into our van tomorrow. I really have no idea how Ben will fit it all in....Go, Ben, go!

*Watched football, watched movies, watched cable (wow, whole new world!)

*Ate. And ate. And ate. And ate.

*Became favorite play buddies of Winston, my mom's Basset Hound. He is going to go through some serious withdrawal this week!

*Finally saw some snow! No white Christmas but at least we're starting out the new year with a little white:)

*Stayed up til midnight to say goodbye to a year that was tough for us and so many family members in many ways and said hello to a new year filled with hope.

*Saw and/or helped catch at least 4 mice. Apparently we're mice magnets?

*Stayed up way too late every night.

More highlights to come! See you on the flip side...

I'm glad you had so much fun! I wish I could have been there to play games, eat, and stay up way too late with you and the fam. Maybe next year! Here's to a great new year for all of us!
