We are in UTAH!!!!!

Henry's happy, Chloe's happy....
Nana's happy and P.J.'s happy.

Now for those of you who just like to look at the pictures I am sorry this is an abnormally long post. Melanie this is especially for you.

What more can I say? Well....... It was quite the struggle getting here. On Monday morning the movers came and that was very stressful to me for some reason so after a few breakdowns, a walk and a box of Twinkies I was very happy the day was over. Waking up the next morning I was so happy to have that day behind me and to get on the plane and fly home. If it were only that easy. We took off fine and the fact that we had our good friends the Allens with us was a saving grace for all of the kids. When we were supposed to land in Chicago we suddenly hear the pilot telling us that the airport is closed and we have to fly around until it opens, well after an hour of flying he comes back on and says we have to fly to Kentucky and land there until further notice. WHAT!!! Kentucky? So we finally land but are stuck on the tarmac for about 45 minutes, with starving children. Again the Allens came to the rescue, McRae had little boxes of cereal for us all to eat while we waited. We were finally able to get off the plane to go get some real food and they told us we would have a long time until we took off again so we thought we would let the kids run around to get some energy out and get some food for us all and go back. I had a feeling I needed to go back to our gate just to see what was going on so I left McRae and her kids in line at Quizno's and headed back. Good thing I went back because they were about to give our seats away, so the boys and I got on the plane and called McRae to hurry back. Whew, we made it. Flew back to Chicago, then into Salt Lake, and at around 3:00 in the morning got home. Needless to say it was a long night but we are here now and so happy to be spending time with our families.

I am overwhelmed with fulfillment both visually and by the written word.

And I'm glad you made it there safely!

Holy cow, that stinks-and that is coming from the girl who drove to Chicago from NH and then flew to California. Have a great Christmas!
