Buzz Lightyear made it home safely

"Dancey, dancey, dance! Dancey, dancey, dance!" V repeated this A LOT while spinning in circles with her fairy wings and skirt. I was slightly worried that she would throw up all over her princess skirt, but her stomach is strong.

The Buzz toy is a huge hit (are we surprised?) -- "Can Buzz Lightyear be my teddy while I take a nap?" Sure, if you really want to hug a 12" hard plastic thing that makes noise. By the way, I did not teach M to call his stuffed animals "teddy". I think that one must have come from school.

The morning that Nathan came home, M woke up at 6:30 because he was so excited. I think it must have been because of the toys, since Daddy coming home from a trip is not exactly a novel experience. All the bags made it. N says he pulled a fast one on the flight attendant when he was checking in his bags -- he had carefully arranged them to be exactly at the weight limit. One bag was 5 pounds over weight. "Oh, that's just my coat." Pulled out the coat (with books and much other stuff in the various pockets!), weight was fine. "Hey, you wouldn't mind if I just put my coat back in, would you?" Flight attendant said OK and Nathan didn't have to carry his heavy-laden coat on board. Hehe.

And the B.L.costume? Did it fit?

Yeah, it's a little bit on the big side, so that's just right. It's very, very cute. I'll take a picture soon.

WOw, your kids are so grown up! Last pictures I saw, I think the boy was a toddler. Maybe?
Anyway, good to hear from you! Sounds like you're having lots of fun!
