And Abbey who is the cutest little hoot.
And sweet Kara, who plotted to attack Mike for a month before we arrived and ambushed me with a nerf gun.
And the youngest, Seth. I bought him this reindeer outfit, which Mike thought was silly, but was obviously an excellent purchase. Look at those huge eyes and chubby cheeks!
Then on Sunday we drove the 8 hours from Omaha to Fort Collins. We read Little House on the Prairie on this leg of the trip. It was quaint too.
And I got to hang out with Jen, who let us spend the night with her. I used to share a bed with her the month before I got married, and now she's having another slumber party with us. A nerdy slumber party, in which Mike, Jen and I sit in a line on her bed doing work on Sunday night on our laptops.
And I got to see Robin, who is always hip and fun and doing impressive, crafty things like making beautiful mama bags for people.
And now, after a number of days of blissful disconnectedness from the world, but connectedness to wonderful people, I must return to everyday life.
