Arrived safe and sound last night at 6P. It was a pretty uneventful trip expect for the VERYVERY full plane and our very cramped quarters. Will was a GREAT traveler. Slept about 8hrs and only got fussy about 45m before he fell asleep. Mike and I neither one slept at all for over 24h but fortuately we slept all night last night....(Will is STILL asleep actually) and I woke up feeling surprisingly well.. Hope it sticks but I'm not going to hold my breath!
It was sooo wonderful to be reunited with out family. Will was at first a bit reserved but warmed up quickly and was running around here playing like he owned the place in no time at all. He let Kenna pick him up and hold him (I'm not allowed to do that!) and was giving everyone high fives and goodnight kisses! The evening was a huge success! He and Sam played great together and shared just fine! A wonderful honeymoon indeed!
My friend Cydil is a professional photographer and met us at the airport and has already! emailed us the best of the best! I'll let the pictures tell the rest! What an amazing gift she gave us! It was so much more relaxing for me just to be able to enjoy everyone and not worry about snapping pictures! I think many of you have seen my behind the couch spread from the spring! I'm quite proud if it! ( If not...it's in my May blog entry) She is very talented, so if any of my local friends need photos....call me for her number! I give her an A+ for LOTS of reasons!!!! THANK YOU CYDIL I LOVE YOU!!!!
I also want to give props to my wonderful brother and sister in law Tom and Terry for not only staying over with my kids but for having my laundry done and the WONDERFUL hot homecooked meal waiting for us! The airplane food was HORRIBLE~ I'm not picky (for goodness sake I ate cow intestines!) and I didn't eat but a few mouthfuls for 24hours and I was starving!!! THANKYOU!!!! Terry and I caught this priceless conversation between Sam and Will last night...
They were playing trains and Will turns to Sam and gives him a 3 or 4 sentence comment in Chinese...here's Sam's reply
"What you say? Are you talkin that Chinese? Why are you talking that Chinese?"
Will of course just stares at him blankly in silence...again Sam says
"Will, are you talkin Chinese???"
again, silence....so now Sam gives him a big sigh and puts a hand on his hip and says..
"OK, if that's what you gotta do"
I would have given a million bucks for video of that!!!
Everyone I know has bragged to me how wonderful all my kids did while we were gone and I am one proud Mamma! Jessa was a wonderful sub-mommy and I think ran the show even when the sitters where here! Sammy was so brave, but brought a few tears to everyones eyes after he waited until we got off the plane and then just let it all out and cried and cried once he got with his mamma and daddy....poor little guy :(
