Return to Normalcy

So much has happened since my last post. Things are finally returning to a sense of normalcy so I feel I may have time to play a little catch-up. The biggest thing that happened was that we moved from Holland back to America. There will be many posts about that to come. It was a very stressful thing, but I feel so blessed to be living close to family again. Part of my heart will always stay in Holland though.

While I sort through pictures for upcoming posts, here are a few random pictures to catch you up on some of the things we've been up to the past few months:

This is the best picture I have of my munchkins on Christmas day. We had a wonderful Christmas and surprised our families by telling them of our plans to move back to the US...lots of happy tears were shed!

Celebrating New Year's is the best in Holland. We kept the boys up, played games, ate junk food, and watched movies while enjoying fireworks right outside our front window.

Jimmy felt so grown up when I let him walk all the way across the street to his friend Roy's house by himself! He was so cute because he would stop at our curb and look both ways about ten times and then hurry across the road.

We went to the kinderboerderij (petting zoo) a few times with my friend, Jennifer, and her two kids, Amber and Sam. Jimmy and Amber were so cute holding hands while we walked to the farm.

Isn't it so pretty?

Myra has a thing for animals and she squeals so loud when she sees them. She had a great time at the petting zoo. I love her cute red nose!

Cute Jennifer and our clan of kids!
