Home Sweet Home!

We got back home last Friday. Nobody is sick - yeah! The van is running OK, although the check oil light has been going off and on... even though the oil and filter was changed right before coming back home. Michael changed the oil again w/ a different type of oil and it seems to be running better. We'll see...
I'm not writing much - I've spent the past hour going over a couple hundred pictures, trying to narrow them down, then making the image size smaller on all of them. Overall, the past month was a bit stressful with all the sicknesses and the situation w/ the van, but there were many great moments, too! I have to say, God was with us through it all. Things could have been a lot worse. I feel very blessed to have such a supportive family - we couldn't have done it without you all!

We had a wonderful Christmas day at Michael's parents' home, then going on to his Granny's house. We went to the park once w/ all the kids. We saw a large display of Christmas lights (for free!). Josephine went to her first Saints game - I especially love those pictures! Maureen's last iron check was 9.8 - it's amazing how fast it's going back up! Her last chest x-ray showed some fluid left in her right lung, but the Dr. said it's nothing to worry about so long as she's behaving normal, eating fine and has no fever. Veronica learned how to sit up on her own at the end of December. Veronica has fully recovered from RSV, as well - she's very lucky she didn't end up in the hospital like many babies do. Finally, the kids got to see a great show of fireworks from the front yard - I can't believe it's really 2008. All in all, it wasn't so bad!

Here's a TON of pictures. Enjoy!

/Hi - Just enjoying your blog again; the pic's are so nice to look at! Your face along with the roses would have been nice! Can't imagine your not taking a nice picture! Tried to print a couple of them but it wouldn't work for me; I like the one with me & Josephine, Julius & Maureen snoozing, & Josephine at the Saint's game with her hands on her cheeks; that's really cute; I have to see if your father can get them printed for me; love you all!
