Happy Holidays

I am back from my trip.
I came to a conclusion....
Red eye trips+me= an over emotional sleep deprived wreck

I had it all planned out.....before I would board the plane at 8:30pm, I would take 2 Tylenol simply sleeps to make sure I could fall asleep. I would read for only one hour....enough time to get drowsy and let the first run of the beverage cart to go through. All was going smooth until I realized the lady sitting next to me was a "Chatty Kathy" She took 2 muscle relaxers and then decided to inform me..."I don't know why I take these, they usually wire me AND THEN I am so tired the next day! I got this mud bath, I am from Seattle, I am a teacher, what are you doing for Christmas? Do you like my mesh tank top pullover? **yes, she really had one, it was NOT too cute** it actually keeps me warm, yada yada yada......."
Then when I thought it was okay to fall asleep, the crazy lady kept trying to TUCK ME IN! Seriously!! lol, I was using my sweater to cover me like a blanket and RIGHT when I was starting to drift to dreamland she would start tucking my sweater behind me and under my chin! She would just smile and motion that she didn't mean to startle me!
Then there was really really bad turbulence....enough to make me pray harder than I have in a long time. And then the lady next to the CRAZY lady was snoring SO LOUD.

Awful trip home. **sigh**

BUT.....enough complaining....I really don't have anything to complain about....I had a great trip, got to see my wonderful sister who I feel I got to become closer to since we are 12 years apart... we never grew up together. It truly was a blessing. Her baby is the sweetest, sleeping at night and awake during the day....could it get any better? And her husband is such a huge help, and such a great husband to her, he treats her like a queen.

I was so happy to be home. The boys missed me, but I don't think it compares to how much I missed James Gabe and Nolan. It actually hurt to think about it while in Hawaii, I love them so much that it actually made me nauseous. As soon as I got home, everything was back to normal....boys going to timeout, trying to keep up with their whirlwind messes, and tons of smooches and them telling me that they loved me.
This week is very busy as I am sure it is for almost everyone! The boys are both sick with whatever this cold thing is that is going around, which adds another element to things. It snowed which adds another element to the errands I have to run. I have to finish Christmas shopping, bake bake bake, and I am in charge with the fantastic help from Kristen, Amy, and Camie to do the decorations for the ward Christmas party on Friday. I also get to find time to love on my boys and give my husband lots of hugs and kisses.

I will be posting some of my favorite Christmas recipes soon within the next week or so. As soon as I find a spare moment!!

I'm so envious of your trip! I LOVE Hawaii and can't think of a better time to go. How great that you got to go and spend time with your sister. Her daughter is beautiful.

Welcome home!
