We have returned to the north of Carolina as of 1:48am this morning. Technically we are in the south of North Carolina which just means that our drive from the NY/New England area is just that much longer. How far did we drive? Well, in just over 5 days we logged 2150 miles (with at least 1800 of them driven by Daddy). The best passenger award goes to...Jake. With doggie drugs and without, he never complained, argued with his seat mate, made ridiculous demands regarding food or movies, nor was he bothered by the hour(s) of traffic we encountered on the way home.
We had a very nice visit with the families, too short and very busy but fun nonetheless. It took me about 2 hours to unpack the van this morning and the only thing we seem to be missing so far is my make-up bag. If it doesn't turn up I guess the preschoolers are going to be in for a shock when they see me without any under eye concealer.
I'll be posting some photos later, so for now, thank you to everyone for making our Christmas so special, we love and miss you! And to our friends and family we didn't get to see this trip--you're on the top of the list for this summer!
