I'm back!

ere's the thing about going to see my family... no matter how good my intentions are, I'm terrible about taking pictures while I'm there! I'm so wrapped up in every little moment, because I only see them once a year, that the camera lays forgotten as we laugh, talk, sing, play, swim, cook...

So I only took a few pictures of my parents renewing their wedding vows on Thanksgiving after Mass... On December 31st they will have been happily married for 35 years and wanted to renew their vows while my sister and I were home. My mom took a few other pics, but there weren't many.

I do have lots of wonderful memories wrapped up in my mind though...

Cutting paper flowers with my niece
Playing in the pool
Getting shots from my nephew with his play Vet kit
Tucking them in and saying good night
Playing in the water fountain and at the park

Tonight I'll be baking for a holiday open house tomorrow and decorating our Christmas tree.

Monday Musings will resume this coming week. I've seen a few get hooked up to the last one from November, so I'll visit them tonight as well.

As much as I love being off for a while, it's nice to be back in my own bed at night.
