Jumping Back In

Hi everybody! We're back in North Carolina after a few weeks on vacation and slowly things are settling back to normal. Before we left for Hawaii, when I envisioned what it would be like being "home" again in the islands it felt like a dream, and now coming back to North Carolina feels like a dream. What was my job again? Which one is the silverware drawer again?

But we're on day three in Chapel Hill and each day is feeling more settled, and more routine. I actually had music time with Gigi tonight for the first time in weeks, and did a few loads of laundry, and vacuumed. The house is a disaster - it always is after Christmas - but we're managing to ignore it as we ooh and ah over the Christmas cards that have been waiting for us patiently. You all look so good and are leading such fabulous lives. Well done!

I've had a few posts waiting since before we left, but limited internet access on our vacation meant that I wasn't able to finish and post them, so I'm off to do that now.

But before I go, what kind of friend would I be if I didn't share a few photos?

The reason we all gathered: To celebrate my Grandpa's 90th Birthday!
