We opened presents when we got home. Santa stopped by on Sunday during naptime. He brought a sled for the kids and they loved it.
We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!!!!
(plus baby Sierra)
In October we headed back to the US to see our families. Our kids were absolutly wonderful on both of the plane rides. I am grateful that flying doesn't bother them at all. Auburn was SO excited to have her own seat and meal. Coming back we had some pretty bad jet lag. Conley, my super sleeper, decided that he wanted to go to bed at 2am for about four days, and Simon had to jump on a plane to Italy the day after we returned (we didn't know that was going to happen). It all made for an exciting return.
The pictures are in the wrong order. I always accidentally do this, sorry. Just so you know, we started in DC with my family, drove to New York to meet up with Simon's family. Thanks to Brent and Kirsten for letting us crash with you in DC and thanks to Paula for letting all of us share your wonderful studio in New York.
After we spent a day in NY, we drove up to Conneticut to see the leaves with Scott, Sasha and Seth. The leaves were in their peak and it was just beautiful!
Thanks Mom and Dad and Scott and Sasha for flying out to see us! We didn't get to see everyone, but hopefully we can catch the rest of my siblings the next time out.... or you can come see us!
Believe it or not, this is our first family picture since Conley was born. It took us four months to get one of all of us.
