Coming Home Celebration

Just an update...we are home, as you can see in this video.  We slept fairly well last night.  Blake woke up crying two times out of fear, I think.  He went back to sleep fairly quickly.  We all slept in until about 6:30 am.  So I can't complain, it could have been worse.  I hope everyone takes naps today so we can all rest up.

This morning had the feel of Christmas with the excitement and anticipation of how all the kids would get along.  I left my camera in my mom's bag so I haven't been able to take any pictures, but lots of videos.  Autum doesn't know quite what to think of Blake, they keep wanting the same toys, so it's been a battle of the wills.  Leah is being a great helper, she helped Blake get dressed this morning by putting on his socks.  So I'm excited to have her around to help.  My house is ransacked!  Autum loves pulling the DVD's out of the TV stand and then hands them to Blake who proceeds to throw them across the living room.  They cleared out the whole stand.  Next they went to the kitchen and unpacked all my cookbooks and envelopes from the shelves...then the phone books, rags, and towels.  So I guess until they are done exploring I'll leave the mess!

I'll write more later...they are headed to the bathroom...oh no!


  1. So glad you guys are home safe and sound. Sounds like Blake did okay on the flight home and I assume you will write about that later.

    I did not realize that your youngest daughter was about the same size as Blake. From what I could tell it looks like you almost have a set of twins. I bet people will be asking that. LOL!!
    How old are your daughter?


  2. I am so glad that you guys are home!!! I loved the news story!!

  3. LOVE this! And just what I needed to see today. Happy Homecoming.
