We're alive!

We made it - we're home, happy and healthy - well fairly healthy. Both of the kids have colds and lots of green gunk but I guess that comes with the territory. We got home Thurday the 23rd at around 3 pm. The flight was not so fun - as you can imagine, traveling with a 2 and 3 year old on a 12 1/2 hour flight was just as bad as it sounds. Cooper slept maybe 3 hours and Kara slept about 1 and cried for 5... or at least it seemed like it.

I think we may actually be on a schedule of some sort but it's too early to tell. The jet lag is finally starting to go away.

They eat and sleep well. 2 out of 3 of the dogs like them - we're still working on Mia, she'll come around.

All is going pretty much like it's supposed to so I'll leave you with some very random pics.

This boy LOVES hats!
