Home Sweet Home again

Two weary (and grumpy!) travelers watching morning cartoons on our own comfy couch.

We're back! We had a wonderful, busy, fun, special, memory-filled visit that we all enjoyed oh-so-much. The trip home yesterday, however, was not so spectacular.... thanks to one missed flight due to a stupid booking mistake (you rock, travelocity.com... NOT), one even further delayed flight, and no luggage (including two very important car seats!) when we finally did arrive at our own little airport close to 10:30 last night. Needless to say, we were all quite exhasted and worn out when we reached home at almost midnight. The girls are not themselves today, after a week of later bedtimes and not enough naps, followed by a long day of traveling-- but I think a good nap this afternoon in their own beds will fix that.

It is so good to be home again, even though we already miss the dear family we left. We are excited to see our loved ones here again and get back into our normal routine. And I have 40 blog posts waiting to be read in my google reader (or was it 60?), so it'll be good to catch up with you all again! Of course, I have about a million and one pictures to share with you all, as well as fun stories and neat places. That might not happen today, as laundry requires my attention as soon as we actually do get our luggage, but they will be coming soon.

I must thank my wonderful cousin Stephanie for her fabulous Tasty Tuesdays posts. What a great job you did as my little guest blogger! :) I am so thrilled, and appreciate that you took the time to grace us all with your culinary ideas. My work is cut out for me next Tuesday... you set the bar high.

Hugs, my blogger dears-- I missed you all!

I'm glad you all had a great time visiting your family! Sorry about the trip home being so awful. I hate flying for those very reasons.

Welcome back! Hope you and your adorable family had a great time. :)

Oh, and I tagged you in another game... Steph said you were already tagged for a similar one, but I wanted you on there. haha

I hope you had a wonderful time! I love your pictures on your space. Especially that last one of Emma! You and Jer should definitely come in to Tahoe Joe's! I work Friday and Saturday and Sunday during lunch time. Basically, I work every day but Tuesdays and Thursdays. So I'm sure whenever you guys decide to come I'll see you!
