Home Again

Well, we are indeed home again, after a lovely visit to my family and friends in my home town.  For four weeks we got to see people I hadn't seen in over two years, make to visits to the beach, go ice skating, meet  two dear nieces, do a little shopping, get treated to a visit to a tea house, have a girls coffee outing, be present for my Dad's, Amy's, and Josh's birthdays, eat at In-N-Out :-), and mostly just spend a lot of time with friends and family.  What treats!  The time went by quickly!  Thank to each dear family member and friend who did so much to give us an enjoyable time!

I left the charger for our camera batteries behind... so it may be a little bit before I post pictures from the visit... but Lord willing, I'll be sharing some before long!

The other day someone asked Clara about whether she was glad to be home.  She said "Yeah.  But now I miss my California family."

My People

G and the kids are in CA visiting Grandma and Grandpa F.  So I am alone for another week.  I have been trying to get some things done around the house to pass the time and be productive.  One of the things on my list is to post.  Because I figure that if I am getting tired of the lack of new posts, then our miriad of fans are probably about to boycott.  So below are some of the pics that G has sent to help me get a fix.
These are the kids waking up in the morning.  I would guess that if this pic was taken -10min prior, then the girl would have had her thumb in her mouth.  The boys like their passies.  I know some parents my age that trained without passie, but we are not that good yet.
Here is Ty expressing his gratitude for some time on the swing.  Chunky boy. 

I wanted to add a picture of my girl.  I miss her super much.  Don't you think she's really pretty without makeup?  I heard this line from an older, wiser man:  "I tell people that the kids got my looks because my wife still has hers.  hahaha!"  True in our case, esp. for all of their noses.
