How can life be busy and not-so-busy all at the same time?

Home after the holidays!
Well, we just returned home today after a 4 day Christmas Marathon with the family. We were supposed to leave first thing Christmas Eve morn in order to make it to my grandma's for a family dinner. However, Soraya got the flu the night before (so did half the children in our church I hear!) Thankfully she recovered very quickly and we were able to depart late that afternoon. We spent the evening with Mama Barb and Papa Gene. Soraya talked all the way home about playing with their toys :) Christmas morning Soraya loved opening presents. Then after breakfast we headed to Chad's aunt's house so they could all meet Jack. We didn't visit too long as we had to head back to Chad's folks to meet up with his brother and his wife. After a few more presents we headed to my Aunts for a big dinner. This dinner involved 8 children YOUNGER than Soraya who is 2! Talk about a crazy time! And somehow we got them all on the coach for a picture! The next morning we packed up and moved 5 miles to stay at my parents house for the next 2 nights. We lounged and opened presents most of the day. Chad and JJ both got Wii's so really we just played Wii almost the rest of the trip!
So now we are home and settleing back into our normal routines. Chad is still on break which is wonderul...I am going to have a heck of a time getting used to him not being around!
