(my new most fave pic from my trusty camera)

Well, all good things must come to an end. Who said that anyway? WHY do all good things need to come to an end? I'm just not sure I believe that that is true with all things. BUT, with vacations, I totally believe it. I hate it when they end. Well, Ladies and Gentlemen, hobos and tramps, cock-eyed mosquitoes, and bowlegged ants (one of my Dad's fave sayings)..I am here to tell you that our vacation has ENDED. Today, we go back to work. Chris' day started off with a 2 hour meeting, his favorite! And my day will start at noon instead of 2. But, for the first time ever (or at least that I can recall at the moment), I love my job! I'm excited to see them all again and to do my job again. Don't get me wrong, I would still TOTALLY rather stay home, but as far as jobs go, I'm super happy to have this one. :)

It was a great vacation, we had a blast. And we got to top it all off with a new niece and then a dinner with my bro n his wife down at the Hollow (used to be Harrison Hollow now I think it's Highlands could be called anything, I'd still show up). . and THEN a freakin GREAT nap!

Chris and I watched Drillbit Taylor last night. It had a few laugh worthy moments for sure. And, as usual, some offensive ones. But overall a pretty good movie. Not purchase worthy. But, I do love Owen Wilson. He's hilarious.

My pup is soooo soft. She's like those super soft stuffed animals..or the best pair of slippers..or the highest quality sheets only found in the homes of royalty. Just thought I'd let you know :)

I got a video of Jon changing his first diaper and I can't for the life of me get it to upload to my web album! I've gotten other longer ones to upload so I'm just totally confused, and a little wee bit pissed.

Matt n Laura came to spend the night on Saturday night..we had a great time. They brought Sadie's newest cousin, Josie. Chris and I call her Josie Wales..we had just finished watching the movie b4 they came over. Funny. Anyway, Sadie and Josie are the best of friends. Here's a pic of them playing..

Later in the night, after mom called to give us the fantastic news of baby Monet arriving (woohoo!!), we ran down to Taco Hell to get some crunch wrap supremes and Matt wanted to try the new Quesowrap supreme. We get there and they say they are out of all the stuff to make them b/c someone didn't want to restock. I promptly tell them that that person should be fired. We leave and go to the other Taco Bell, my good new pretty Taco Bell on Eagle. THEY had what we wanted. We get home to eat them, take them out of the wrapper and, WTBF? They're about 1/2 the size they normally are! And, I'm pretty sure mine was missing the lettuce and tomato. F. Matt says that lots of businesses are reducing the size of the meals instead of raising prices. Well, F that. I'll be making my crunchwrap supremes at home from now on.

ANYHOO, we then busted out the Rockband. Boy were we rusty..well all of us but Matt, he always rocks out the tunes. Laura was back to her kickassery drumming skills in no time. It seemed to be only Chris and I (ok mostly me) who continued to struggle. Laura and I were too tired to continue so we passed out and the boys continued on in their quest to dominate the Rockband world. Next mornin we all sat outside and waited for sleeping brute to wake up and make us breakfast. Ash finally went up and got him up. He came down and made a super delish breakfast. Thank you honey :)

OH, we might have a new FREE tree for the front yard!!! M & L's neighbor is re landscaping her front yard and has a "If you can haul it, you can have it" tree in front. He just has to make sure she hasn't changed her mind and that it's still available. It's not as big as our other one but it's more established, has a ton of foliage. YAY!! In other news we broke our shovel trying to get our stump out of the ground yesterday. Had to go down and buy a that hopefully will not let us down.

Well, I guess I'll letchya go for now, I gotta go get ready for work. Happy Monday! Have a GREAT week :)

Loving you!


  1. Wow, sounds like an eventful weekend. Hope to see u guys soon!!

  2. Sorry that the good times have come to an end. Look at it this way, by the time vacations are over, we are usually ready to get back to our regular routine, at least for a little while anyway. Wouldn't it be great if you could work for just a couple of months and take a week's vacation again. Dream on, huh? Hope the shock of getting back to reality wasn't too traumatic. It was a great way to spend time with yourselves and Ash and J, as well as many other family members. I LOVE doing that.
