My trip home was fantastic! And now I am in serious withdrawal…I miss the kids, I miss the weather, and I really miss my sister.
One more day and I will be on my way to Washington. Next week will be four work days out there (but I get to see family for dinner!) and then beginning Friday I am officially on vacation. WOOHOO!
Lots of activities taking place while I am there. My nephew is getting baptized and turns one! My sister turns…well, I won’t say even though she is younger than I am, but her birthday is the day before Caleb’s. And it is her anniversary…though, I’m not sure what kind of celebrating we’ll do (or they’ll do) since my BIL is going in for knee surgery. Poor guy. It is on his “good” knee. Growing old stinks!
Except when you are going from this:

Then growing older is pretty darn incredible.
I can’t believe it has already been a year. Time is flying by so fast. I can’t wait to go see him and play with him and hug and kiss him!
I got to go home for Thanksgiving this year (unexpectedly)…it was a whirlwind trip, but I am SO glad I got to go. Monday was spent traveling for the most part and working in the afternoon. Then Monday night my mom and sister came up to meet me for dinner (I stayed up north because it would have been insanely silly to try to fight rush-hour traffic both ways since I had to be back up there Tuesday morning). Then Tuesday, I actually got done with the work stuff early which was great because it meant more time with my sister and nephew.
My trip home was awesome! In the truest sense of the word…little Caleb is amazing, but I will get to that in a bit.
Nothing extraordinary…momma and baby got to go home yesterday. Amy is doing well, a little sore (as can totally be expected after a c-section!!) but overall is feeling really good. Doctor's orders are to take it easy with not much moving around for the next couple weeks and then start to work back up to full speed. My mom is taking this week off to be around to help and I will be there next week. And Nick's parents are both around as well, so at least she isn't stuck on her own right away.
