Finally In The Land of The Free and The Home of The brave!

We finally made it HOME! Feels so great. My jet lag is horrible to say to the least but I will eventually get over that. For example: I'm blogging and it's 1:45am KC time and 4:45pm Seoul time. Missy is jet lagged too!  We were in the air a total of 16 hours! The flight was okay... The best thing was the individual TV's and the free adult beverages.

We finally got our Sonic fix today. There is just no way to replace their drinks! There is also this great sushi place here in KC we are going to for lunch tomorrow :) We had Rancho tonight with Tyler's family and it was a really great time. I laughed so much my jaw hurt! I can't wait to see my family. My parents met us in the airport and took us home. We had planned on having breakfast the next day with them but I was pretty much comatose for the next 13 hours, so that plan went out the window.

I only packed 1 pair of jeans and 2 shirts... Guess that means I have to go shopping. How terrible is that!? I can just here Zona Rosa calling my name. While we are there I have to pick out my little blue box Christmas present :) I'm spoiled beyond belief I know, but he wouldn't have it any other way.

Well I guess that is all for now. I think I'm going to try to catch a few more z's. So happy to be home!

Thanksgiving and Bountiful Leftovers!

Our Thanksgiving holiday weekend was glorious! For the holiday we had 11 people over. We served ham, green bean casserole, corn casserole, rolls, homemade chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes, candied yams, apple-butter pumpkin pie, cherry pie, and pecan pie. As far as the turkey and stuffing go, we had a friend offer to make that and I was very thankful he offered! I have a very small Korean oven and it isn't always conducive to my cooking needs.

The food was huge hit. All the boys loved it. I was so glad we were able to provide them a Thanksgiving away from home. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to take too many photo's. My plans were to take to lots of pictures but I was very busy to say the least. So here is a picture of the after Thanksgiving day breakfast!

 I know it's not much :( I also made ham and beans. Oh comfort food, I love you. Our friend Lukas Deem came over for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning and loved it! He had never eaten stuffing with eggs and now says its one of his favorites. Man, can that kid put it away!

In other news our leave is vast approaching! Only 11 days left. I am really hoping this month of leave time can will us through our last 6ish months in Korea. Needless to say its not our favorite place be. I have been doing a little bit of baby sitting lately. I am doing it to raise money for Missy's plane ticket. She is going to cost us $400 bucks! Girls are SO expensive :)

I did happen to gain 4 lbs over the last 10 days.... (Dang you gravy!) So I'm trying a new workout regimine and its kicking my butt. I'm so sore but without pain there can be NO gain. Thanks for checking in. I will try to post as a get more things ready for our leave.
