With thoughts of stuffing and sweet potatoes still dancing in my head, I just ate a broccoli and cheese quiche from TJ's because the fridge is otherwise empty. We managed a meager dinner and the kids are all in bed.
Poor Hazel's nose is stuffed to overflowing with boogs and she didn't even get her nightly bottle of warm sweet milk (no post-trip trip to the g-store today). She is still mad at me because I can hear her, but I think it's the boogs talking.
Lucy and Seth are happy to be in their own beds tonight. Each hotel room we entered (and there were three this pask week), Seth would ask, after a quick walk-through, "Where are all the toys?"When we walked in the door (out of which Craig immediately left for work) Seth ran into his bedroom and announced "All my toys are still here!!!" We are so relieved for that fact and also grateful for a familiar place.
That said and before I've even unpacked the suitcases....here was our lovely week in photographs with the Mangum Clan a la Ogden, UT:
four of the five (with babes--Laurie included!)
The glowing family of the hour
Car David Mangum (with his son in his eyes)
Seth atop Uncle Tom (no that is not his real name)
You know the rest!
*A Special Thanks to Mark and Janna for their gargantuan effort in bringing us all together to savor such a sweet occasion.
