How Do You Spell Exhaustion?

T-R-A-V-E-L. But it was well worth it. We had so much fun hanging out with some cute kids (and other family members), eating great food, and just chatting and hanging out. I have the best family in the entire world. Brian even got to go golfing with Pat and also see his brother. The kids played together really well and there was only one trip to the emergency room the whole week (poor 'King'). Kendall got very whiny and clingy the last two days but I think that her daily 4am wake up may have had something to do with that. She is just a kid that likes structure and vacations are very go with the flow and they take a toll on her eventually.

We actually ran into my bestest friend from high school in the airport on the way out!

Kendall and I had a bit of a date this morning. She came with me to my eye appointment then we braved the crowds at Target and then had a little lunch together. We have all the suitcases unpacked, the fridge stocked and laundry going. This afternoon we're taking a family trip to the local library and tonight we'll get in our PJ's and watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Since we've been home I've been admiring a pair of shoes I got there and I've been working on some clove oranges, yummy.


  1. I miss all my kids!!! :(

  2. It was really great to see you! I feel like I get to "keep up" with your family through reading your blog. Sorry to say that I don't do the same! :)

  3. What are clove oranges?

  4. You randomly spike oranges with cloves and when you walk into the room it smells all Christmasy and goodness. You can line them up on a ledge or put them in a bowl together.

  5. ohhh!!!! ahhh!!! I will have to go get me some'a that! I love Christmasy goodness! :)
