home again

We are finally home. After several of us had the flu on the way home we finally made it.Got here about 11 or so last night after getting up at 1 am that morning and driving straight through. I took off work today so i can get things back to normal. All the kids went to school so that helped:)
We had a wonderful time in Georgia and Florida. The weather finally ended up being warm. Today here at home it is suppose to snow. Yeah!!! I love the first snow.
Will post pictures later. Just wanted to let everyone know we are here and are all fine now.

we're off........

We are leaving tomorrow morning on vacation..Yeah!!!!!! We are going to my parents house for a week and then taking off to Disney. We have been there several times but our youngest has never been there before so it ought to be lots of fun!!! He is REALLY looking forward to going. The girls just like the idea of getting to leave for a while:) since they have been there.
We are driving all the way through to Georgia so it ought to be quite an experience. We told the kids they could stay up most of tonight because then they will sleep while we are driving. Good plan huh? Just hope it works and they are not too wired to sleep. We need a few hours of quiet driving so it won't seem like such a long trip.
Will fill you in with details of the trip and hopefully lots of pictures for you to enjoy.
Have a great weekend and will be back in a week and a half. Vacation here I come:)

Happy birthday Emily

Today is our middle daughter's 15th birthday. Can't believe she is that age already!!! As our tradition goes, on their 15th bday they get to go to Woodfield Mall with some of their friends to go shopping for their bday. They also get to eat dinner at Rainforest Cafe. This is a real fun place to eat.They also get to have a volcano at the cafe-which is a mountain of ice cream and brownies. Yum!!!!!(she is the one in red:)

Here's a picture of the yummy volcano we got for her birthday.
Have a very very happy birthday Emily.We love you!!!!!!!!!

vacation day???

The kids have today off if we decide it's ok. I know that sounds strange but there was a threatening note given to the high school and another of the elementary schools yesterday and the teachers all called and said if we decided not to send the kids today it wouldn't count against them because of the situation.The schools will all be on lock down but that still doesn't stop someone from doing anything stupid. It is sad that the world has changed so much that you feel afraid to send your own kids to school because of some whacko that wants to scare everyone.
So, today i am letting them sleep in. We decided that they can stay home. I would like the help today with the daycare kiddos anyway:) Besides i may have extra kids if their parents decide to not send them:P
