Home sweet home

We had an incredibly easy flight. A very sweet flight attendant moved the 3rd person from our row so we had the whole bank of seats to our selves. The flight was timed with bed time but we gave her some gravol as well, and with all those factors she slept most of the trip. Tip: we made a little nest for her at our feet which worked very well since she kept rolling off the seat and that made us too nervous to sleep ourselves.
THANK you !!! every one who helped support us during the trip, your comments and emails kept us from feeling too isolated. Thank you to the incredibly warm welcome home, the care packages, the welcome banners and the impeccably clean and well stocked house. Your support is amazing and so valued by all of us.
After arriving home last night the kids had a short time to play with each other, and the initial meeting went very very well. Emery is showing incredible maturity in his first day as a big brother. Every one went to sleep at 10 and Yoyo woke up at 5 am for a bottle. Again an amazing first night considering she slept so much on the plane. Things could not be better. I woke at one point in the night and could hear one husband, two babies and one dog snoring and I was the happiest girl in the world at that moment.
As I type Elora is checking out her new environment and happily munching on some cherioos. Life has never been sweeter.
