We all made it safe and sound to Texas and are about one week into our stay. With the exception of a few late night play sessions and midnight snacks the kids seem to be dealing with jet lag really well. They like playing in Michelle's back yard and enjoying the space and freedom of a big house instead of a little apartment.
There were baskets full of chocolate and a few toys this morning and we will be having turkey and trimmings for dinner. Plastic eggs meant for hiding are filled with dirt and grass a la Bailey and Sophie and litter the back yard. This is Bailey and Sophie's first Easter in the States and their baskets ae still full of candy. I don't think they realize that there are chocolates and jelly beans in those plastic eggs in their baskets. Just wait until they find out. . . . .
