I'm Home!!!!!

I just got back from a week long vacation on my very own. I went to New York to visit my sister, Sherri and her family. It was so gorgeous there and COOL!!!! I did not miss the 115 degree heat for one single moment. We hung out and watched the Olympics, made some cute projects, went to a concert in the park, played with the kids,shopped, visited family and ate out a lot! My other sister, Lori and her family flew in from Florida the last day I was there so it was fun to get to see them too!
Sherri is quite the crafty one so we made a few books while I was there and now I just need to put pictures in them. So fun! She always has a fun new project to show me!

Her youngest, Aidan, got a Knight's costume while I was there. He decided it was fun to "sword" with everyone but he didn't quite understand that even though the sword was plastic it hurt when you got whacked with it! So, after watching Kevin get beat up pretty good, when I was asked to "sword" I claimed I was a princess and he was supposed to save me from the mean dragon. He found his stuffed dragon and proceeded to "kill" it with his plastic sword and then told me he saved me, "Princess Kathy" from the dragon. My Hero!!!!!! So, so cute!

Aidan and Alexis also made Kami a darling little necklace with "pixie dust" in it to bring her good luck. (Kami almost always went with me when I met up with them and they missed her terribly!) She wore it to work for the last 2 days and loves it because it came from them! I wish I would have thought to take a picture of it before I gave it to her!

Little Miss Addie entertained us all. She is such a cutie and she danced and played until she dropped. She is such a happy little baby-this was the first time I met this little niece of mine.

The bonus of the trip was that I was able to start and finish Breaking Dawn. (I was waiting so I could read it on the plane.) It was great- hardly any interruptions!And the very best part was that my house was CLEAN when I got home! Thanks Honey!!

I am completely jealous. I was hoping you were going to call and say come. No fair. Glad you had a great time. What a husband. He is the knight in shining armor here.

Welcome home. :)

I wish I could go back to NY. Sounds like you had a good time, how nice to spend some alone time with your sisters.

Oh, Kathy, your trip sounds just wonderful. I am so glad you had such a good time. And the clean house was certainly icing on the cake. Maybe Rod can teach a priesthood class on how he did it!!
