One year blogiversary- Stranded in Vegas

Today, one year ago, I started this blog. I planned some quality blog time to get caught up on the holidays and all that has happened recently. Well...this is not quite the time or place I thought I'd be today. I had plans for a lightly snowy arrival at Charles' Mom's house, where I'd still be wide awake despite a long travel day... Ha! Best laid plans, right? No, a snow storm on the east coast left us stranded in Las Vegas with two kids, a handful of luggage (not all, of course) and no real idea when, or even if, we'll get back home. So, here we are. Luckily, I made contact with an old friend, with two young girls of her own, who was willing to come rescue us from the airport. Thank God- because all flights to the east coast have been canceled tonight! We're booked on a flight in the morning and with any luck our trip back home will resume 24 hours later than we planned. I've been pretty balanced today...Elijah is a dream, and Christian fared well with our adventure (a couple of meltdowns in the airport, but luckily nothing too drastic.) I refused to get worked up today. And it wasn't a bad day. So, Kumbiya friends. Kumbiya. And Happy Blogiversary to me.

P.S. Posting from my cell phone. I really do not recommend it. A more concise post with pictures is soon to come...

HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!!!!!! I LOVE the new photo on your header! You all look beautiful! Sorry about the storm! =( Seeing it on the news makes me glad I'm living in hawaii now. Last year there was a blizzard, when we were living in new jersey, and I was snowed in alone with baby Danny in the hospital!

I can't believe it's been one year! I also can't believe our boys are 8 months old. I was traveling on that anniversary and completely forgot. So good luck getting there and safe travels. And hopefully Eli won't decide the day you land that will be the day he gets a new tooth. XOXO

What an adventure! I still remember how my husband and I had to wait more than 12 hours at the airport for our flight to go on our honeymoon. It was dreadful, but I can't imagine it with two small children! I hope you guys arrived home safely.
