Back in England

Pheuw! What a whirlwind the past week has been. The warm kind of wind that you don't mind being in at all. I have so many stories to tell and no time to do it right now, but I'll make sure to sit down some time early next year to write. The trip across the Atlantic is a chapter of it's own, including an emergency landing in New Foundland and a spiritual  aha-moment for me, I'll make sure to tell you all about it later. 

It's been wonderful to spend Christmas with J-girl, Snorkel Kid, Froggy-boy and Sta-Bas. I loved seeing Diver Dudes eyes lit up when we first walked in the door and he was attacked by Froggy-boy with a big hug closely followed by Sta-Bas yelling "E-paaaa, E-paaaa!!" (StaBas is two and that's how grandpa is pronounced.) The week's been filled with frogs, insects and other creepy crawlies that Froggy-boy captured and showed us (he's seven, going on forty and a future biologist/zookeeper/snake-tamer), Star Wars toys in all thinkable sizes and shapes (Sta-Bas is obsessed, hence the name {Sta-Bas = Star Wars in Sta-Bas language}), doctors visits, contractions and wild baby moves with J-girl + bump and lots of dive related discussions between Diver Dude and Snorkel Kid (who is following in Diver Dudes footsteps as a Navy Diver), some chillaxing by the pool and a whole lot of wii sports. 

We also got to spend time with Diver Dudes MOTHER, Spoiled Brat (youngest brother), Hippie-Jew (step-dad), Marie Antoinette (sister, and that's her real name!!) and her two boys Billy-Bob and The Professor. Oh boy, do I have some good stories, they are one crazy family! 

Anyway, I better get back to preparing for the party tonight and taming the laundry monster, I really just wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year! May 2010 be the year when all our dreams come true.


  1. Glad you're home safe. The emergency landing sounds scary! I dislike flying so that would have been tough for me.

    Happy New Year!

  2. Happy New Year to you, too. Diving in the sun, now there's a pleasant thought which brings me way back when... It's freezing out there (England), here(Ireland), too.

    Amazing photograph, where? When?

    May all your dreams come true 2010 and beyond.

  3. Happy new year to you, too! Can't wait to read your upcoming stories!

  4. Happy New Year! Glad to hear from you and that you are safe & sound back home. Looking forward to your stories.

  5. So happy to have you back! I can't wait to hear the stories, especially your spiritual a-ha moment!

    Happy new year!

  6. Welcome home. It's great to see you back, and I'm glad you had a good time away. Funny, we had an emergency landing in Newfoundland on our honeymoon - a different sort of experience.

    Looking forward to hearing all your stories, and I hope 2010 is the year that all your dreams come true.

  7. Happy New Year to you and yours, sweets!
    Missed you lots and lots!
    So which Monster did you encounter before you left?

  8. Glad everyone got home safe and sound and can't wait to hear the details!

  9. Welcome home - anxious to hear about your emergency landing. May 2010 be the year of babies for us infertiles!
