SURPRISE... we are in TEXAS!


Yes... we are in Texas. Blake surprised me with a visit home... I guess he could tell that I was a little home sick... He is such a great husband. We left on the 28th of Oct. and arrived in Houston on the 28th of Oct. THAT IS SO COOL.. we actually gained a whole day. I wish I could say that the plane ride was smooth and painless... but since I was by myself with Pierce and Pierce was not use to his car seat and he does not know how to sleep outside of his bed... we had some problems. Pierce slept about 4.5 hours out of our 24 hour tour back to America. There were times that I was not so proud of but we did make it and we are SOOOOOO happy to be home. The picture above was taken our first leg to Japan. The flight was empty which allowed us to roam around the plane and play with lots of TV sets. The first leg was easy... the second leg was a different story.

Since Pierce only slept an hour on the first leg I wanted to wear him out in the airport during our lay over in Japan... I let him go from massage chair to massage chair and play and run... It did not really work.


This picture looks promising but this is after 3 doses of Benedryl and 15+ hours of not sleeping.... he finally passed out for an 1.5 hours... I was so thrilled that I had to get proof.


Julie was one of the few people that knew of our surprise arrival (we surprised the rest of the family) and we got to stay with her the first couple of nights... Pierce was so excited to see his JUJU.

There will be alot more pictures of our stay in Texas. We are currently in FTW and will be in Texas until the 28th of Nov. We sure do hope to catch up with everyone.

Awww...what a sweet surprise! Glad you had a safe (if not quiet) trip. Hope you have a great visit home!

I was so confused by your comment about visiting a pumpkin patch...now it makes sense! Welcome home! If you guys plan to go to the zoo or anything, let us know. Or if you and Shelly get together to scrapbook and need a third person give me a call! We're in southwest Arlington so pretty close.

Awesome! I miss Texas, too, even though we love Alaska. Can you enjoy it for me, too, while you're there? :-)
Love ya!

I'm crying!...Seriously, tears... I can't believe you're so close and I still don't get to see you. I'm so happy for you, because I can only imagine how happy you are to be home!!! However, I'm selfishly upset, because I miss you so! Tell everyone there to give you and my precious Pierce big kisses for me!!!!!

What a sweet surprise from your husband! I am so impressed. and you get to be around for a whole month. That's awesome. My eyes teared up as I read because I know how happy you must be. I couldn't live that far from home. Enjoy your trip!

I'm so excited that you made it home! And I'm so impressed that you made the trip alone with Pierce! That is a long trip!!

Hopefully your trip goes by slowly and that you enjoy every second of it. I wish I was in Texas so I could see you!
