hopefully this week i’ll talk a bit more about our Thanksgiving trip and i’ll add some photos, but in the meantime, let me just say that we are SO THANKFUL to FINALLY be home! we landed in seattle w/o any problems despite the reports of "blizzard conditions" up north. long story short, we made it home around 1 p.m. today. it took the shuttle driver about 4 hours (instead of 2.5 hours) to get from Seattle to Bellingham and we had him drop us off one stop early – which was at a hotel, so we could sleep (we got into our room around 5:15 a.m.). ugh. it was a LONG LONG trip "home." Dad picked us up from Bellingham today and when he pulled in front of our home, here’s what we saw: Just a little bit of snow, eh?! But oh boy, does it feel good to be home again!
