Flower Child

We are home!! The trip home from Nebraska was sooo much better than the trip out there. It had to be: I made my mom do the 6 hour drive part of the trip the day before the flight (instead of doing it all in one day), I bought new carry-on bags that had wheels (and left the ones that didn't), I packed my spanking spoon so that it was readily accessible for me and visible to my kids :) , and I checked in all my car seats and carriers and just carried the kids in my arms. Besides the fact that I am now on a 6 month back-recovery plan with my chiropractor (the result of carrying at least 2 kids at a time through the Atlanta airport :), I am doing great and eager to get back into our routine. I have so many pictures to show you and just as many thoughts to share about our trip, but I will have do that another day because right now I am running around trying to get things ready for Halloween tomorrow. I just wanted to show you Annie's pre-Halloween costume:

Here's our FLOWER CHILD:

I can't wait to show you her "real" costume tomorrow!!

How funny...My girls have a "spanky spoon" and just saying the words is enough for them.
