just how I Imagined it.........

My babies are here in Utah.....They are tucked up in their beds ready for a good nights sleep and I am oh so happy....I don't think I could ask for anything more. We left on Wednesday morning at 7 to make the trip to Portland. They were waiting for me. I slept between the two of them with a big smile on my face. That night, Don ended up in the ER with a kidney stone....He got some really good pain medication and slept most of the day while my daughter packed a moving truck. I played with Andrew and Olivia and Lisa kept little Trace. We left yesterday morning at 7:oo with an 8 yr old, a 4 yr old and an 11 month old....Lisa drove the truck and Don the car...I played with the kids...A twelve hour drive took 16 hours....Don and Lisa are exhausted, I am happy....I have smiled so much, my cheeks hurt....So they are tucked now in the room I redid for them and all the work was worth it. They both love it and feel right at home.

Andrew was all happy to get his picture taken, Olivia is tired and ready to get in her p.j's so she put them on her head in protest....it has been a long couple of days....for the kids too.

Have I said yet how happy I am?
