On the Road Again...

The ride home was HORRENDOUS to say the least. We left Tejas at 4am (TX time) and drove until 1am (NC time) straight through. I thought we'd never get home. Jake was vomiting and Miah had diarrhea while all FOUR had fevers so everyone was miserable. The car reeked of vomit, poop, body odor, bad breath, and kid farts. When we finally pulled up all the kids were asleep but they quickly woke up to see that Santa had left them "big gifts" at home as promised in his letter. Kora finally got the doll house of her dreams, Jake got MORE legos and Miah a motorcycle - with training wheels that is! In their stockings he left flight jump suits for Jake and Miah, teethers for Isaak and perfume and bubble bath for the Princess.

My sweet friend Amber left me some inspiration for out future decorating extravaganza! I love this window, don't you? I'm thinking of painting it a dark orange, sanding to make it rustic again and then adding a rusty chain to hang it in my Spanish themed dining room!! Ooohh I can't wait!

She also left us milk, bread, eggs and Dr Pepper along with some homemade goodies that are divine!! Thank you my friend for taking care of my house and my family!! *wink*

All in all the trip was adventurous but I'm glad to be HOME again. Nothing like being home even if it IS in dirty Jville :)

Holy Smokes! What a saga! I'm glad to see you all made it back even with all the sickness. I like your window and can't wait to see it finished!

okay--girl! I am glad you guys made it home! That car ride sounds HORRID!

That is a HUGE dollhouse:) I am sure the little box of legos cost more than that huge house though:o
