So Happy

Together. All 4 of us. Or 5, counting the dog. Going on 36 hours or so now. There's been some crying, from everyone at some point or another, but the dog has only joined in howling once. And there've been lots of smiles and snuggles. Even some sleep. And, bonus, a load of laundry or two, washed, dried, folded and put away. All without coffee. Or wine. Yet.
The small people do not outnumber the big people. The big people actually sat down and enjoyed dinner together.
We can handle this. We will handle this.

No matter how they toss the dice...

P.S. Did Colby take the pictures?
Just curious.

Great pictures -- both of them. God couldn't have put these two beautiful children in better hands. The picture of all of your hands together is perfect!
