we are home . . . for a brief time (more to come on that later).
good things about the trip home:
1) The new airport in Indy . . . . has family sercurity check. Seriously - this is the best thing ever! A separate area for families to go through security. Wonderful, kind security personnel encouraging us to "take our time" . . . . carts to wheel our many plastic bins over to the conveyor belt . . and benches to "redress" and collect our things.
2) The many wonderful cards and letters awaiting us (after being held for 12 days) at the post office.
3) Our wonderful friends at Santi's who welcomed us back to town (we haden't even been to our house yet) with a free, fabulous dinner. We love, love, love them!

We are still alive . . . . we've just been braving the Indiana winter for 11 days. We got into town for an ice storm followed by more snow . . . then more ice. . . . then rain . . . now flooding. We will be attempting to make our way back down to Indianapolis this morning (Titans are playing the Colts in Indy today by the way!) and will fly back to Charleston tomorrow morning.
Pictures, videos and vignettes from our trip will eventually be posted. And you'll definitely enjoy them. :-)

Grandpa Joe made this wooden rocking duck for Joseph for his first birthday. Joseph loves it. It was intended for me to finish it off decoratively. . . . .
One year and three months later with some paint, batting, fabric and stain . . . . rocking duck looks like this.

this post is dedicated to anyone/everyone who ever had to use the old original bathroom in this house (especially the Rampeys & Tells!). no more leaning to the left while sitting on the throne. no more yucky bathtub. it's a brand new day! there are a few finishing touches left to be done. . . . but we have a functioning, new, 2nd bathroom!
