Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig!

All’s been quiet on the blog front for a few weeks because of an unexpected trip I had to make. I’m sure many of you know this already, but being away from your family, especially when you have two little tots, is NOT fun…

I knew the kids would be fine, because they have such an AWESOME daddy! Having a great grandma and grandpa nearby also helped a lot!

Within just a few days of my departure, I was already closing my eyes, clicking my heels and saying, “There’s no place like home.” Unfortunately, it doesn’t work in reality, and I found myself still far away from home, counting down the days till I could get back!

I missed these 3 faces soooooooo much! It’s great to be back.


One of the best parts of coming home, aside from just BEING with everyone again, was seeing how happy the kids were with the little presents I brought them (sorry – no pictures! I was too focused on their smiles!). I brought them both new “mess free” writing pads, little “pills” that soak in water and expand into sponge dinosaurs, and some other equally light (didn’t want to handle a lot of extra luggage!) and toddler-appropriate  toys.

AND… Eddy surprised me with a new Galaxy S4! I can’t wait to finish exploring it!

Even though I’ve been here for a few days, I’m still caught up in the excitement of arriving and seeing my husband and little boys again!  I hope to be posting pretty regularly again soon.
