Back home!!!

Well, after two weeks, we are finally back home.  And I am happy to report that Milly did NOT puke on the floor AT ALL!  However, her water dishes were bone dry - oops!  Lucky for her the toilet seats were up!  So we all survived the holidays and are happy to be back home.  The boys are outside playing in our fresh new blanket of snow (fresh to us, anyway) and we are to get another 6-10 inches tomorrow, I guess.  Eric brought his dad's snowmobile to live at our house, so I'm sure they will have fun riding around on it in our yard tomorrow.  I think I'll be staying inside to de-Christmas.  It's so weird how you can be sooooo excited to get all the decorations up and then you cannot wait to get them down!  

Here's a funny D story from yesterday.  We decided to take the kiddies to a movie yesterday afternoon (Dylan's first movie experience) and we should have known it wasn't going to go well from the beginning.  When we got in the car, Dylan couldn't contain his excitement about watching the movie.  "I'm going to see Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater and Mac...!!"  Uh oh!  He thought we were going to see Cars!  So we get there and get settled in with our popcorn.  I put Dylan on the seat next to me and it folded right back up with him in it.  Apparently he needs to gain a little weight before his next movie!  Anyway, the movie started and he was pretty excited by the atmosphere around him - the big screen, the popcorn, the dimmed lights.  Then the movie started and he was watching intently for quite awhile and asking a lot of questions.  "Who's that?"  "What are they doin' mama?"  "Oooooh a mouse!"  (We went to a movie about a mouse, the name of it slips my mind at the moment - cut me some slack, I've got pregnancy brain.) So about half the movie has gone by when he says, "Turn off the tv, Daddy.  Lets go get in the car."  LOL!  Apparently the mouse didn't captivate him enough!  So, as you can imagine, he was happy when the movie ended.  Actually, we were all happy when it was over.  It was NOT good.  

Well, I must get some food going before I pass out!  Later!
